Do you notice that after cooking at home for so long you start to loose the taste for things bought already made from the store? I really noticed it when I was craving some coffee cake and bought some at the store. I ended up not eating it! I was so mad. My husband ate it though, he was such a trooper *rolls eyes*
I find cooking feeds my soul, so I decided to make my own coffee cake since my soul was a little beat up after work.
I was going for something to the effect of the Entimens (sp?) cream cheese danish with some fruit. It turned out incredibly well, I had found the recipe sitting on my hard drive of things I need to eventually make.
It has a slightly sweet topping, with a layer of cream cheese and raspberry ooze (cooked raspberry and made thick) over a delicious cake. Oh my. Love. Especially warm. LOVE IT WARM. Because then the cream cheese and berries are all ooey-gooey and mouth watering.
Here is my issue though. My husband thinks its very tart, I think its overly sweet (very sensitive to sugar since I don't eat it often). What ways can I make it not AS sweet or not use quite as much sugar without using artificial sweeteners? No Stevia either.
