Additional Information

In this timely, unique cookbook, America's Test Kitchen tackles the monumental challenge of creating foolproof, great-tasting baked goods that contain less sugar and rely only on natural alternatives to white sugar.      

White sugar is one of the most widely demonized health threats out there, even more than fat, and consumers are increasingly interested in decreasing the amount of sugar they use and also in using less-processed natural sweeteners. But decreasing or changing the sugar in a recipe can have disastrous results: Baked goods turn out dry, dense, and downright inedible. We address these issues head-on with 120 foolproof, great-tasting recipes for cookies, cakes, pies and more that reduce the overall sugar content by at least 30% and rely solely on more natural alternatives to white sugar.

I've been eating a diet low in sugar for about 5 years, and baking has been one of my greatest challenges. Often desserts come out dry and grainy when baked with less sugar, or they rise too much, or not enough. The ATK recipes control for this, and instead of substituting sugar by any other name, they use much less sugar overall, while also offering substitutions for several popular natural sugars (sucanat and coconut sugar, primarily) and without using chemical substitutes such as sugar alcohols or aspartame.
The book covers a wide range of breads, cakes, cookies, and other desserts or breakfast items. Each recipe has a color photo and detailed instructions that even novice bakers will be able to follow.

If you're looking for a book with recipes for sweet treats using far less sugar, this is the book you want.

Update: so far the recipes have been a success! The low(er) sugar cheesecake was a big hit at the office.
Having grown up in Europe, I find many American recipes too sweet for my taste. I would always cut down the amount of sugar the recipe asked for mostly with no ill side effects.

I pre-ordered this book purely based on the title - well, mainly the subtitle "Bake all you favorites with 30% to 50% less sugar" and my trust in ATK's recipes. I was thinking I'm getting a book with recipes developed using less regular white sugar which I have no problem with. Instead the recipes use more natural sugar alternatives, like Sucanat, coconut sugar (did you know it comes from a sap of coconut palm flower?), honey or maple syrup.

At first glance, the recipes look a little more time consuming as they involve grinding the sugar before using it. I had a bit of an issue when grinding the sugar in the spice grinder for the suggested 1 minute caused the grinder to overheat and sugar got stuck to its walls. I guess I might need to shop for a better spice/coffee grinder?? I... Read more
Love America's Test Kitchen but this isn't their best work. I've only made the chocolate chip cookies from this book and they had a strange flavor from the leaveners and too much salt. There also isn't a lot of variety in terms of the sugar alternatives that are used.
