Maple syrup in breads

December 20, 2012 - 8:04pm -- ngolovin

Hi all,

I have been baking breads for a while.  I have seen all sorts of sweeteners used in breads such as honey, molasses, agave, brown and regular sugar.  I do not have a recipe with maple syrup.  I made this comment, while munching on my latest loaf, to my wife and was asked why.  That is a good question, so I thought I would pose this question to the forum.  Why isn't there a recipe that uses maple syrup as the sweetener in a bread?  If there is, please let me know where I can find the recipe.  I thank you all, in advance.

Happy Holidays!

Struan Bread

August 4, 2007 - 7:18pm -- colinwhipple

I am getting ready to make the Struan Bread tomorrow.  The recipe calls for a lot of sweetener, 3 Tbs brown sugar and 1.5 Tbs honey.  I am tempted to leave in all the honey but cut the brown sugar back to 1 Tbs.  What have others done with this recipe?
