Granular Maple Sugar can be used in recipes in the same way as cane sugar is used. It can be used to sweeten drinks, top oatmeal or incorporated into a flavorful rub for meats. When using Granulated Maple Sugar in baking, it acts just like regular granulated sugar and can be creamed with butter for cookies and cakes. It is sweeter than regular sugar, so when using it in a recipe that calls for regular sugar, you will want to reduce the amount of Granulated Maple Sugar slightly so that your finished product isn’t too sweet. You can reduce it by as much as half, but since you want the maple flavor to remain pronounced, it can be a good idea to use slightly more than half and adjust as you go.
