Next time you buy ready-made stuff from your supermarket or shop, have a look at the ingredients and you'd be surprised what items have been sweetened: soup, bread, so-called low-fat cereals and "healthy" yogurts. Before you know it, you will have eaten several teaspoons of sugar without even realising you've done it. Don't get me wrong, I love to have a sweet treat now and again and you will find plenty of cake recipes on my blog. But the thing is that I'd like to decide myself when I have something sweet.
Anyway, rant over! Guess I will just have to try to make even more stuff from scratch and where I don't or can't, I need to read the labels even more carefully.
The positive result of all of this is that I have since discovered a wonderful recipe for a fluffy sandwich bread that will satisfy when we crave soft bread - minus the sugar. I will share the recipe for that tomorrow, so watch this space...here's a picture to get you drooling :-)
