I’m sure you’ve been baking some sweet treat and while looking through the recipe you were baffled by the fact that this sweet recipe was calling for salt as one of the ingredients.
Basically salt enhances all flavours both savoury and sweet. It adds dimension to your sweet baked goods rather than them just being flat and overly sweet tasting.
If you are baking and you find yourself using salted butter, be sure to halve the amount of salt called for in the recipe of you may end up with over saltiness. The idea is that you should not be tasting the salt, that is unless you’re adding in too much of it.
