Substituting Maple Syrup for Granulated Sugar
What to do instead of 1 cup of granulated sugar:
Use 3/4 to 1 cup of Hall Farms maple syrup
Because maple syrup is less sweet than granulated sugar, if you like sweeter foods, you should use the larger amount of syrup. If you prefer something not as sweet, use only 3/4 cup.
Decrease liquid by 2 to 4 tablespoons per 1 cup syrup used.
Because syrup contains more moisture than a solid granulated sugar that the recipe called for.
Add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon baking soda.
Because Hall Farms maple syrup has a slight acidity that needs to be neutralized for the batter to rise and form properly. Do not add soda if recipe contains buttermilk, sour milk, or sour cream since these liquids do the same thing.
Decrease oven temperature by 25 degrees.
Because the maple syrup will tend to caramelize and burn on the top and edges sooner than a batter using a solid sweetener like granulated sugar.
