Types of Sugar
Sugar is an important ingredient in baking. Sugar adds sweetness and increases tenderness, as well as promoting browning and crust development. This helps retain moisture to prevent dehydrating and increases volume by helping raise temperature to help gluten coagulate. In this online pastry class, Chef Susie describes different types of sugars from cane sugar to agave nectar. Explore your sweet tooth by experimenting with different sugars while baking.
