Ratio for creaming butter with sugar

pearlyriver | Nov 14, 2012 01:04 AM

I have a recipe for upside down pineapple cake by Stephanie Alexander where she called for 175g butter and 150g sugar to cream. I only used 2/3 of the sugar and the cake still comes out soft and moist (although perhaps not as fluffy and lightweight as her recipe). Is there a ratio for creaming butter and sugar? I'm quite concerned with the amount of sugar intake and I don't like oversweet treats and I find my cake a little too sweet for my taste. Could I cut down more sugar
