    Welcome! Is there a specific sort of recipe or dish that you have trouble with most of the time? The fix may be different for different foods... – Erica Nov 12 '18 at 15:37

    Not a fix, but if you're experiencing it often, then either follow a tried & tested recipe for the amount of sugar to use, or add in small increments. Note down the amounts you used and use less the next time. – Ess Kay Nov 12 '18 at 16:45

For desserts, you can always add a sauce or topping that is bitter or sour to balance out the sweetness. Citrus, roasted nuts, dried chiles, dark chocolate, or coffee would all help a cloying dessert.
