As a diehard baker always on the lookout for new baking products, I was eager to test C&H’s ultrafine pure cane sugar for bakers. A little skeptical of the claim that its Baker’s Sugar measures just like regular granulated, I compared the weights of one cup of each sugar several times and the results were always the same: both equal 7-1/2 oz. To test the claim that the Baker’s Sugar blends more quickly and smoothly than regular sugar, I selected a few favorite recipes for retesting. From the results of my angel food cake and cocoa meringues, I’d say that the sugar works superbly in desserts made with whipped egg whites. The egg whites and sugar came together very smoothly and baked to a delicate, fine texture. I got less dramatic though still successful results from batches of chocolate sauce and brownies. The ultrafine sugar blended quickly and smoothly, though the results were quite similar to those I get when using regular sugar.

C&H Baker’s Sugar is available in grocery and gourmet stores in the West and Midwest. You can also order it online from www.bakerssugar.com or by calling 925/688-1731. A 4.4-lb. bag costs about $3.50.
