Measuring Honey Easily
Measuring honey can be a problem because of its thickness. A non-stick cooking spray works best to rectify this problem. Just lightly spray on the cup, spoon, or container being used to measure the honey. Lightly buttering or greasing will also work.
Baking With Honey
Using honey instead of sugar can easily be done by reducing the amount of liquid in your recipe by 1/4 cup for each cup of honey that you use. A pinch of salt will help to bring out the sweetness of honey. You will also need to use 1/12 to 1/15 teaspoon of baking soda for each cup of honey you use in addition to the baking powder already in the recipe. This helps to neutralize the acidity of the honey.
An excellent reason to use honey in baking is that goods baked with it are noted for not drying out as easily as those baked using sugar. Honey absorbs and retains moisture. The flavor and moisture retention is best when the baked goods are stored in tightly covered containers after cooling.
