Tips for Cooking with Honey

The first time you try substituting honey for granulated sugar in a recipe, begin by substituting honey for about half the sugar. After some experimentation and practice, honey can replace all the sugar in most recipes.

When baking with honey, remember the following:

  • Honey is sweeter than sugar - about ¾ cup honey = 1 cup sugar
  • Reduce other liquids by about ¼ when substituting honey for sugar.
  • Add ½ teaspoon baking soda for each cup of honey used.
  • Reduce oven temperature by 25% to prevent over-browning.
  • Coat the measuring cup with non-stick cooking spray or vegetable oil before adding the honey.
