I'm making brownies tonight for a party tomorrow and I have a bag of Vegan Cane Sugar at home (the Whole Foods 365 Everyday Value brand). I've used it once before and I recall having to use FAR LESS of it than the normal amount of sugar called for in the recipe. Sadly, I don't remember what recipe that was, I think something like a jam.
The sugar has slightly coarser granules than regular white sugar (not quite as coarse as turbinado, somewhere in between) which would make me think I'd need more, not less. Maybe it has something to do with the "purity"? I really have no clue.
Does anyone have any tips or advice on using Vegan Cane Sugar in baking? The bag doesn't make any recommendations and I couldn't find anything on their site either.
For reference, here is the recipe I'll be using (the recipe is not vegan, but I'm posting here because of the nature of the product in question) http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2012/0...
And by the way, I don't own a kitchen scale, so measuring by weight isn't an option for me at the moment.
