Substituting Honey to replace sugar
Honey is sweeter than sugar, so you need less!
When adapting recipes follow this simple rule;
About 1/2 cup Honey for 1 cup Sugar.
- Because Honey is Liquid, For every cup of Honey you are converting, you need to DECREASE the amount of liquid in the recipe by approx 1/4.
For example if your recipe has 1/2 cup honey,
You will need to subtract 1 Tablespoon of Liquid from the recipe mix also.
- If baking with honey, reduce the oven temperature slightly, as honey will tend to burn faster than granulated sweeteners.
- Add 1/4 teaspoon baking soda per cup of honey so the batter will rise.
