(HealthDay News) -- Cutting down on sugar in your delectable desserts doesn't have to mean sacrificing taste or enjoyment.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these suggestions for baking with less sugar:

  • Cut back the sugar by a fourth or even a third in baked goods such as cakes, cookies and breads.
  • Instead of frosting a cake, top it with pureed fruit, slices of fruit or a light dusting of powdered sugar.
  • Use spices and extracts to naturally sweeten desserts. Examples include vanilla, peppermint, cinnamon, allspice or nutmeg.
  • Don't be afraid to experiment.
