Barkman Honey

How do you substitute honey for sugar?

You can substitute equal amounts of honey for sugar for up to one cup of sugar. Reduce liquid by 1/4 cup for every cup of honey used. In baked goods add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda for every cup of honey used and bake at a temperature 25 degrees lower than instructed. In cookie recipes that call for eggs with no additional liquid, increase the flour by two tablespoons per cup of honey or enough flour to give the desired consistency. Chill before shaping and baking.

Helpful hint: Honey can be measured easily by using the same cup used for measuring the oil in a recipe or by coating a cup or spoon with nonstick vegetable spray.
