A question about a recipe: Chocolate and Cabernet Sauvignon Italian Cake

D9be94df 71d5 461a baa7 2e7b680ffe95  food52 02 28 2012 0070

I know it's probably obvious but is the "fine sugar" called for in the chocolate and Cabernet cake superfine or just regular sugar?

Hi mattcooper,

My guess would be superfine sugar. But I think superfine or regular granulated would both work fine, since it's just getting dissolved into the liquid.

good luck!

Thanks. I just didn't want it to be too sweet since I'm thinking that the volume of a finer sugar might be greater than a regular sugar.

Nope, superfine and granulated are pretty equal in volume. If you wanted to, you could stick the granulated in a food processor and whiz it a while to make superfine.

Confectioner's sugar is a totally different animal, though. Just use that for frosting and stuff.
