Overall the taste is very good but not so good for baking.

Comments about Splenda Brown Sugar Blend:

I saw a commercial advertising this just as I was going to shop for Thanksgiving food. Having a diabetic in the family I am constantly looking for ways to cut sugar content and the product sounded like an ideal way to do that. Splenda is a brand name that I trust and use every day in place of sugar. This one, having brown sugar substitute, and only 10 calories per serving, sounded perfect for the holiday baking I was going to do. I was also going to use it in the ham glaze in place of regular brown sugar. The suggested amount to use is 1/2 cup of Splenda brown sugar for every 1 cup of regular brown sugar. That makes the 1 pound bag render as much as 2 pounds of brown sugar. I prepared the glaze and it turned out wonderfully. It melted even better than brown sugar and no one had any idea they were getting a sugar substitute nor imagined I changed an ingredient in my recipe. However, I made my usual churritos (Mexican style) and used it in the batter with horrible results. The batter consistency was not the same as with regular brown sugar. They were much firmer than usual (although the flavor was fine) and ended up throwing them out. I also baked orange dream cookies that call for brown sugar that turned out horribly. As before, the flavor was almost identical but the consistency was much denser. I would use this product again for the glaze and for sprinkling on top of things that are already baked, but never again in batter to be baked. In my experience it doesn't give you the desired results. I suggest if you use it for baking then play around with your recipe and you might alter it a little to get the desired outcome. It tastes just like brown sugar otherwise and is reasonably priced.

Splenda Brown Sugar Blend

Comments about Splenda Brown Sugar Blend:

Amazing Stuff! The Splenda Brown Sugar Blend is so delicious and is so much like real brown sugar.  I was given a sample to try and couldn't believe it packed like real brown sugar.  I made oatmeal cookies and they were gone in no time! I love the fact that it reduces the number of calories in sweets that I bake. I bake cookies all the time and have a stash frozen for lunches and special treats.  No one ever guesses that I use Splenda!

Splenda Brown Sugar Blend makes baked goods delicious!

Comments about Splenda Brown Sugar Blend:

I love Splenda Brand Brown Sugar Blend because it makes my baked goods taste great while lowering the colorie content! I used it tonight instead of regular brown sugar for my famous apple crumble and my family did not notice the difference! If a recipe calls for 1 cup of brown sugar you substitute 1/2 cup of the Splenda Brown Sugar Blend. I have used it in breads, cakes, crumbles and muffins and they have all come out great! I have not had a problem finding Splenda Brown sugar blend in my grocery store. It can also be bought online.

Comments about Splenda Brown Sugar Blend:

I first purchased Splenda Brown Sugar blend to use in a low glycemic recipe for blueberry yogurt muffins.  I loved this product and have purchased more of it ever since.  My muffins came out wonderful and you wouldn't have known they were made with Splenda brown sugar blend and not regular sugar.  I just made a second batch today with raspberries instead.  I have been purchasing Splenda Brown sugar blend since I'm trying to follow the low glycemic diet.  You use half a cup in place of 1 cup of regular brown sugar.  This sugar will not harden.  I could not find it at the supermarket across the street from my house which is Keyfood.  I did find it at Stop and Shop supermarket though just as I thought.  Stop and Shop is much bigger than Keyfood.  This is wonderful for baking healthier.  It's worked well with me and I will continue to use it.
