So many foods today are loaded with sugar, which can definitely affect body weight. And a lot of the time, sugars are even disguised on labels, going by some freaky sounding names that most people can't even pronounce, like Isomaltotriose and Oligosaccharride, just to name a couple. (There are actually over 200 different names that sugar goes by on food labels.)
Dan decided to make some delicious Blackberry Coffee Cake, using Monk Fruit In The Raw in place of the sugar in the recipe. He definitely noticed that Monk Fruit In The Raw blended and mixed just like regular sugar does. This was a nice change, considering a lot of the sugar alternatives we've tried have been...well....a bit funky to work with.
But the thing he loves the most about this product is the fact that it converts exactly the same as regular sugar. So if a recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar, you would substitute 1 cup of Monk Fruit In The Raw. Easy, peasy, right?
The house smelled absolutely amazing while our Blackberry Coffee Cake baked away in the oven. Our mouths were literally watering, so we couldn't wait to serve up a few slices. Dan and I had ours with a nice cup of coffee, and the kids got a cold glass of milk with their cake.
Would you like to try my Blackberry Coffee Cake for yourselves? Here's the recipe :
