How can make our cake much sweeter without adding too much sugar into it or what can we add in our cake instead of using too much sugar that make our cake sweet.
If you don’t want to change the cake itself (because it needs experience and just using less or more sugar can ruin the cake texture), you can always add a small amount of something very sweet to the baked cake, either when finishing it or when serving.
For example, consider
- a sugary glaze
- a syrupy drizzle
- a sweet filling
Match the flavor to your cake, for example picking
- sugar icing
- a fruity jam or lemon curd
- a (Swiss) meringue topping
The trick is to make sure that the sweet addition hits your palate first, which means you will perceive an intense sweetness without really using a lot of sugar. You can even combine this with using a low-sugar (= not very sweet) cake recipe as the base.
