How to Substitute Honey in Place of Sugar

You can substitute honey for equal amounts of sugar in many recipes. In baked goods, substitute honey for up to half the sugar and make the following adjustments:

  • Reduce the amount of liquid in the recipe by 1/4 cup for each cup of honey used.
  • Add 1/2 tsp. baking soda for each cup of honey used.
  • Reduce oven temperature by 25 degrees F.
