Honey in Cooking

You can use honey in cooking instead of sugar. Because it is sweeter than sugar, you need to use less.

If you are experimenting with honey in a recipe, try replacing half the sugar with honey as the flavour can be very strong. Honey is hygroscopic (meaning it attracts water) so it is good for baking cakes as it keeps them moister for longer. Look on our recipe pages for some delicious recipes using honey.
