To substitute honey for sugar in your recipes, follow these simple guidelines.
Substitute honey for up to half the sugar called for in the recipe. With a
little experimentation, honey can replace all the sugar in certain recipes.
Reduce the liquid in the recipe by 1/4 cup for each cup of honey used.
Add 1/2 teaspoon baking soda for each cup of honey used.
Reduce oven temperature by 25 F to prevent over-browning.
Remember, honey has a higher sweetening power than sugar. It will take
less to sweeten your recipe.
For easy measuring and fast clean-up, coat measuring cups and spoons with
vegetable oil or nonstick cooking spray before measuring honey.
One 12-ounce jar of honey equals a standard measuring cup.
