Sucanat is an organic, unrefined cane sugar that has not had its molasses removed, unlike refined white sugar. Light brown in color, Sucanat has a grainy texture and has a taste similar to brown sugar. It has small amounts of iron, calcium, potassium, chormium and vitamins A and C. You can use Sucanat in your muffin recipe as you would regular cane sugar, although your muffins will have a light molasses flavor.

Step 1

Cream together your butter, eggs and Sucanat in a bowl. Measure the same amount of Sucanat as you would for regular cane sugar.

Step 2

Mix together your dry ingredients in another bowl. Combine your creamed mixture with your dry ingredients.

Step 3

Pour your batter into a greased muffin pan. Put the pan in the oven and set the temperature according to your muffin recipe.
