I recently bought the Cake Love cookbook. In it, he says that he only uses superfine sugar for his cakes. I had read somewhere else that using Drivert sugar in cakes is supposed to make it taste better. I do know that the drivert sugar I buy is not a superfine sugar - should I be processing this in my cuisinart? Or should I just be using superfine sugar?
not sure about drivert sugar, but i use bakers sugar which is supposedly superfine sugar. Or, if i run out, I just use regular old sugar and the cakes come out just fine. Good luck!
Not sure what drivert sugar is.... When I need superfine sugar for fast dissolving or minimal grain, I do buzz it in the Cuisinart to make it into superfine. But if the recipe calls for superfine, be sure to measure it after the Cuisinart and not before.
Drivert sugar is an extra fine powdered sugar with no cornstarch and 8% invert sugar. It retains moisture more because of this.
I can't see it benefitting from more processing.
does any one have any recipes using drivert, i hear it makes the best petit four icing??
I use Cake Love book too. I was processing my sugar because superfine is not in my stores. One day I decided use the sugar as is, and I cannot tell the difference.
