Q:

How much sugar is equal to honey?

A:

To substitute honey for granulated sugar in a recipe, use one-third to one-half less honey than the amount of sugar called for in the recipe. Honey is twice as sweet as granulated sugar, so it is necessary to reduce the amount in recipes.

When replacing sugar with honey in baked goods, reduce the liquid called for by one-fifth, because honey is 18 percent water. Honey is used in the baking industry to keep baked goods fresh and moist, since it can absorb and retain moisture. To prevent honey from sticking to measuring utensils, spray them with cooking spray before measuring the honey.

  • Q:

    What should you do if you added too much sugar to a recipe?

    A:

    If too much sugar is added to a recipe, adding a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar tones down the sweetness. The amount of apple cider vinegar needed to tone down the sweetness will be determined by the amount of excess sugar that is added to the recipe. Continue adding apple cider vinegar to the recipe until the sweetness is at the desired taste. White distilled vinegar can be used in place of apple cider vinegar for the same effect.
