As a food, sugar is a crystalline sweetener consisting of sucrose made from the sugar cane plant. It is usually sold in granular form, but used to be sold in blocks, in the past.

Sugar plays a major role in baking and confections. For instance, aside from sweetening, it adds tenderness to doughs and flattens cookies as they bake.


Sugar is often found in recipes that also contain all-purpose flour, egg(s), vanilla extract, butter, cinnamon and water


Substitution for 1 cup sugar:

1 cup corn syrup

Reduce liquid in recipe by 1/4 cup.

Note: Substitutions are a suggestion only and may not work well with all recipes. Use your best judgment!
