What Do I Use In Place of Cane Sugar?
I am super excited to share this awesome and simple post with you all today! What is it? Homemade powdered sugar. But this homemade powdered sugar isn’t made from granulated cane sugar, it is made with granulated honey or dehydrated powdered maple syrup.
Granulated honey and powdered maple syrup are simply dehydrated and sold in granulated form. This is great when you are creating glazes or cooking a recipe that requires very little liquid.
I know it sounds different, but I wanted to share with you another alternative to powdered sugar that might please your taste buds all the same.
This recipe will take you less then a minute to whip up and it taste AMAZING!
- In a high powdered blender (like a Blendtec or Vitamix) place the granulated honey or maple syrup into a dry blender.
- Put on low speed and gradually work your way up to high speed and blend for 15-30 seconds or until a fine powder forms.
- Add in arrowroot powder and turn on blender for another 10 seconds.
- Store powdered honey/maple syrup in an airtight container in the pantry.
