Date sugar lends a gentle sweetness to baked goods and packs in a fiber and mineral power punch not found in most other sweeteners. Because it is made from whole crushed dates and does retain the fiber, it does not dissolve well in hot or cold liquids. We recommend using date sugar to replace the total amount of sugar called for in a recipe. However, since date sugar is made from the whole date and contains fiber, it has a tendency to absorb liquid, therefore we recommend you try decreasing the flour called for in your recipe by 25%.
