Honey

You can substitute honey for sugar – but you have to keep a few things in mind. Honey is sweeter, so use about one-third to one-half as much honey as you would sugar. Also, know that 12 ounces of honey equals one cup, as containers are measured in weight, not volume. Honey is 18 percent water, so reduce the amount of liquids in the recipe by one-fifth. Lower your oven temperature by 25 degrees, and coat your utensils with cooking spray to prevent the honey from sticking to measuring cups or spoons. Finally, if the recipe doesn’t include sour milk or sour cream, add a pinch of baking soda to counteract the acidity in honey, which can cause over-browning.
