The haunting sweetness of maple syrup is a wonderful addition to any dessert. Not only does it often replace refined sugar, it adds incredible depth of flavour to baked goods and the like. I love experimenting with maple syrup: I add it to oatmeal on chilly mornings and Hot Toddys on cold nights. These desserts, however, require no experimentation. They are tried-and-true recipes showcasing one of the most revered sweeteners out there. A baker’s dream!
