1. Sticky situations
Measuring out the right amount of honey can sometimes be a tricky - the honey will stick to the surfaces of your cups and spoons. Lightly grease the inside of your measuring cups and spoons with olive or coconut oil.
2. The healthy swap
Swap out processed cane sugars for healthier honey, but remember honey is twice as sweet. So for every cup or spoonful of sugar, use half the amount of honey.
3. Runny honey
When swapping out sugar you are switching a solid for a liquid. Reducing the liquid ingredients by about a ¼ will do, so for example if the recipe calls for a cup of milk, you will use ¾ cup instead.
4. Foil any flops
As a denser ingredient, honey may also affect your bake’s ability to rise. So for every ½ cup of honey you add, you will need to combat that with a ¼ teaspoon of baking powder.
5. Hot stuff
When you use honey in your baking, your treat may be more likely to catch in the oven. If you don’t want to see your buns burnt, lower the cooking temperature by 10-15° and check intermittently while baking.
