When it comes to producing moist and tender baked goods, it's all in the sugar. Our friends over at America's Test Kitchen have been testing this theory through The Science of Good Cooking, their newest cookbook. This time, they've proven that sugar not only adds sweetness, but it also changes textures of baked goods. For example, trading brown sugar for white makes two totally different cookies, texture-wise. Which does your favorite recipe call for?

Really enjoyed this. Does this mean brown sugar would also make a moister cake?
