Ok. I'm a rookie baker/cook here. I just made some high calorie banana bread and, oh my, the smell is overwhelming as I wait for it to cool! So, my diet is toast right now doing crazy baking like this, but, how do you cut back on the sugar in such an item as banana bread, or, whatever? The recipe called for 1 cup, but it was suggested to cut back to 3/4 cup. But folks, that is a lot of sugar in my system!!!! Geesus! I suppose I could have cut it to 1/2 cup and it would be fine? Any cooks out there with advice besides avoiding the sweet stuff but a way to cut back on the sugar such as in this banana bread I am about to devour and still have it taste good? Do you just use "Equal" or such for this? (Rookie here!) Thanks pals.
