4a. Baking better batters
Find a cake recipe using little or no sugar. Make it. How does less sugar affect the cake?
Sugar gives a cake more flavor, but it also makes the cake tender and moist because sugar generally attracts moistures. Sugar also gives a cake its brown crust because sugar carmelizes when heated. Too little sugar in a cake gives a pale crust, tough (as opposed to tender) crumb, and little flavor.
