Tips for Adapting your Favorite Recipes with SPLENDA® Sugar Blend
SPLENDA® Sugar Blend is a mix of pure sugar (sucrose) and SPLENDA® Brand Sweetener (sucralose). It provides functional properties for your baked goods - such as browning, volume, texture and moisture retention – but with only half the calories and carbohydrate of sugar. It works well in recipes such as layer cakes, brownies and confections. Simply substitute half a cup of SPLENDA® Sugar Blend for every full cup of sugar required in a recipe
You can also use SPLENDA® Sugar Blend in beverages, on cereal and fruit, and elsewhere you might use sugar.

Chocolate or Butter
Combine all dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Cut the fat into the dry ingredients before adding the liquid ingredients. This will reduce the amount and appearance of air tunnels found in the cake after baking. Also, when baking cakes, switching from 9" round pans to 8" round pans with 2" sides will help achieve a better rise.Back to top
When heating SPLENDA® Sugar Blend on its own in order to melt or caramelize, it will dissolve more readily with the addition of a small amount of water. Saucepan caramelization happens more quickly with this product compared to regular sugar, so watch the process carefully to prevent overheating or burning.Back to top
Cookies and Spread
Baked goods made with SPLENDA® Sugar Blend will stay fresh for 24 hours, when stored in an airtight container at room temperature. If you wish to keep your baked goods longer, wrap well and freeze.
