Tasty Honey Recipes and How to's:
Honey Substitution


Honey can be substituted for sugar, and sugar substituted for honey. However, since honey is ounce for ounce sweeter than sugar, you need to use less of it in most recipes.  Coat the inside of the measuring cup with a thin film of vegetable oil and the honey will slide out easily and mess free.


Sugar Substitution:

1 1/4 cup sugar + 1/4 cup water = 1 cup honey


Honey Substitution :

1 C. sugar = 3/4 C. honey minus 1/4 C. liquid or plus 4 Tbs. flour plus 1/4 tsp. baking soda

1/2 C. sugar = 6 Tbs. honey minus 2 Tbs. liquid or plus 2 Tbs. flour plus 1/8 tsp. baking soda

1/3 C. sugar = 1/4 C. honey minus 1 1/2 Tbs. liquid or plus 1 1/2 Tbs. flour plus 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 C. sugar = 3 Tbs. honey minus 1 Tbs. liquid or plus 1 Tbs. flour plus 1/16 tsp. baking soda


Bake cakes, and other goods made with honey, 25° lower to prevent over-browning.  Honey softens cookie batters. For crisper variety of cookies, add 4 Tbs. flour for each 3/4 cup honey used if necessary.
