Liquorice powder is very sweet-tasting, and to my taste it's pleasant. It's commonly used as a sweetening agent in herb and spice teas. Now, liquorice is a medicinal herb, so this wouldn't work for most people, but I happen to be in the group of people who benefit from taking liquorice medically (CFIDS/ME, low blood pressure and so forth), plus I'm not planning to eat anything made with it very often.
I'm thinking of attempting to make a carrot loaf/cake type thing (which I haven't done before) and using liquorice powder to replace some of the sugar. Does anyone have any ideas about how to go about this? I'll be using gluten free flour as I intend to freeze the portions.
