Maple syrup and its siblings, maple sugar and maple butter, have long been irresistible treats that sweet lovers enjoy by the spoonful, or crêpes and pancakes. But did you know they’re also versatile sweetening products that you can use as a substitute for refined sugar in any dessert recipe?
More than trendy “natural sugars,” maple products are perfect sweeteners because they’re wonderfully aromatic and come in an array of forms, which makes them incredibly versatile and suitable for any baking project. Of course, it doesn’t hurt to know that 100 percent pure maple syrup is derived directly from maple tree sap and is filled with vitamins and minerals.
Guided by award-winning recipe developer and maple syrup addict Marie Asselin, learn how to make timeless classics, such as maple syrup fudge and Québécois maple pudding, as well as modern, maple-infused treats, from breakfast muffins to French macarons.
All recipes in this eBook can be made by anyone, including novice cooks, and come complete with useful substitution recommendations, clever tips, and storage and make-ahead instructions that will allow you to achieve any baking project—and treat your loved ones to the results!
