Date sugar is supposed to be a 1:1 swap with real sugar, but it never works when I use it. Because it doesn't cream well with butter, the better always comes out dry and crumbly. Has anyone successfully used date sugar as a substitute?
Thanks! Can you suggest any healthier sugar substitutes?Date sugar is not sugar. It’s just pulverized dehydrated dates.
Date sugar will never work like cane or sugar beet sugars because these are made by crystallizing the juice from these plants. The crystals dissolve when they come in contact with water.
Since date sugar never started as juice, it will not dissolve into a liquid. As ground up fruit, the fiber will remain in whatever it’s mixed in. So it will never preform like real sugar.

Wow, thank you! That is a lot of information. Diabetes runs in my family so I'm trying to eliminate sugar but I love baking.
