The Best Sugar Substitute

It might be confusing to choose the right sugar substitute as there are so many different opinions. For example, some people claim that coconut sugar is sugar-free while research suggests otherwise. My personal favorite sugar substitutes are fruit and monk fruit powder. For more information on various sweeteners and their pros and cons read my post on how to sweeten tea without sugar.

My Secret to Gluten-Free Baking

When a recipe calls for “all-purpose” gluten-free flour, you will probably use the one you already have in your pantry. And probably your flour will work great but it might differ from the one the recipe developer used. As a result, you might get a denser or gummier cake than what the pictures promised you! To avoid such mishaps, I strongly recommend you get a 13$ digital kitchen scale that will not only help you measure ingredients correctly, but will also decrease the number of dirty dishes and will serve you for many years to come!
