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.
Substitution for 1 cup sugar:
1 cup corn syrup
