Will Stevia raise dough like sugar does? What do you all use Stevia for?

Ramius | Jun 20, 2011 09:22 AM

Guess what. I have just ordered liquid and powdered Stevia from Canada. Because it is legal to buy and import to Norway, for personal use. If you were to buy it in a shop, a little can would cost 60 dollars, which I just payed five dollars for on Iherb.com.

So since this is my first time with Stevia, I´m curious to just how it works, and if it honestly can replace sugar in my cooking.

I´m a pizza fanatic, and I always add a tablespoon of sugar to my dough, because it strengthens the yeasts ability to rise the dough. Does Stevia do this as well?

Can you really substitute sugar with stevia in baking? After reading up on it, it doesnt seem that way. As many recipes want you to use apple fibers and shit for the volume of it.

It seems Stevia is more a replacement for sugar, when you use it on top or in already premade dishes. Like putting it in your coffee, sprinkling your fruit with it and such. It doesnt seem that great to use IN cooking.

How do you people use your Stevia? And is it really that sweet? Package should be arriving in a few days.
