Adding more sugar to a sweet bread

December 12, 2008 - 9:01pm -- koolmom

I make a sweet bread for Christmas that is stuffed and shaped into a candy cane.  My husband would like to increase the sugar in the dough, currently it calls for 1/3 cup.

There is approximately 6 1/2 cups four.  If I double the sugar, does anyone thinks I must add anything more to the recipe?

Honey for sugar in Hamelman's Challah

Hi all,

I'm a long-time lurker, long-time bread baker.  I live in Ottawa Canada and really enjoy reading/devouring all the posts.  I guess you could say I am passionate/obsessed with bread and bake frequently, at least 2-3 times a week.  Mostly straight doughs, but do indulge in the occasional sourdough - only problem is my family doesn't like sourdough so I end up eating it all (not a good thing for the waist).
