Stevia is a natural plant based sweetener. Sweatleaf is a brand name. I've tried it in the powdered form, Sweatleaf and another brand (cant remember), but I prefer liquid drops. I find liquid is superior for controlling amts. The pks, similar to sweet-n-low etc, are WAY too much for one use and it's difficult to get the exact measure each time. Droppers are easier to control amts. Also, I found powder was more bitter and the more you use the more bitter the taste. Most stores will carry Stevia with the other sweeteners. I currently buy Sprouts brand of liquid.

What is the recipe? I have only used stevia for sweetening beverages. This blog has a lot of suggestions for baking, you might compare what you are making to some of her recipes. http://www.familyfreshcooking.com/2011/02/24/stevia-favorite-go-to-sweetener/
