I seem to use a bit of everything, depending what I am cooking, and my pantry reflects it! I use raw or palm sugar for Asian dishes and brown or caster sugar, maple or golden syrup and honey for baking.

I have started experimenting with stevia to see if it changes the end product taste or how it is cooked. So far, so good, which is great is you need to reduce your sugar intake!

Sounds like we have the same pantry!

We only use sugar or brown sugar in sweet or savoury food. We mainly use it in savoury food, as we rarely bake at all. We do make desserts if we are having people over for dinner, but don't make cakes or biscuits. I made a chocolate rough slice last weekend as I was going to my sons, so gave it to my daughter in law. My daughter ate the rest, and was quite upset when it all went !!!
Yum. That sounds tasty!

We use sugar,honey, molasses primarily. These days the family is trying to cut down to just having sweet coming from fruits but its a work in progress.

Honestly, it depends what I am cooking!

That didn't answer really..... So i would say Caster sugar
If I need to ad a sweetener it would definately be sugar.
The substitute sweeteners are so expensive. I use all types of sugars, honey and golden syrup, depending on the recipe.
I use mostly coconut sugar, with sometimes maple syrup or coconut syrup but very rarely a white or brown processed sugar, and never a synthetic one.

I have never tried coconut sugar. What does it taste like?
by Naomi
Honey! Especially since my family has 400+ beehives. Raw, fresh and unaltered honey makes the best sweetener since it is natural sugars.
Wow. That is fantastic!

I tend to use sugar, even tho I don't take sugar in my coffee.
I use brown sugar when I'm making a tomato sauce, but normally I don't add sugar to my meals.
I don't do any backing. We don't use sweeteners on our cereals nor in our tea or coffees. I don't have have any caster nor icing sugar in the house. I will put Japanese soy sauce in try Asian food, if required. I do use maple syrup & golden syrup & jams, on my pancakes, but I don't put any sweetener into the pancake recipe. I only make them about once a month, & usually only for my self.
