Honey for Cooking

Honey can be substituted for sugar in most baked goods, although it will affect the texture. To use honey in place of 1 cup of sugar, use 2 tablespoons less than 1 cup of honey, add 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda, and reduce another liquid in the recipe by 3 tablespoons.

Honey adds a unique flavor buzz and delicate floral sweetness to everything from appetizers to baked goods to sauces and salad dressings. If you love this sweet syrup as much as I do and want to let it shine in your dishes in all it's liquid gold glory, you'll likewise want to study up on our best practices for using it to sweeten your kitchen life.
