Can I replace the sugar with honey

Admin

Just answer that yes. The sugar in the recipe, you can substitute honey. How do I explain in detail later in the article. But the question I have is a misunderstanding, why?

I assume that the people who ask this question want to replace the "unwholesome sugar" on the useful honey. I'll try to figure out whether this is so.

Honey in its structure is very similar to sugar. And to be precise, the average honey by 80-85% consists of sugar (Fructose, glucose, sucrose and other sugars types). The remaining 15-20% is water. And only 1% - are proteins and useful microelements.

I'm in their desserts, honey do not use, the only exception is honey cake and nougat, but there Honey is used to add flavorAnd not as a sweetener.

But let us return to the subject of this article. To replace the sugar in the recipe for honey completely, it is necessary to take into account that Honey is sweeter. Hence, the amount in the recipe should be reduced.

Honey contains a liquid. So, if I want to replace the sugar in the recipe I need to reduce the total amount of liquid on the amount that is contained in honey.

I sit down at the table, equates, calculate how much to honey to replace sugar. Then prepare the dough and send it baked in the oven, for example at 180 °.

Now let us remember that honey when heated loses its beneficial properties. That's all the benefits of honey has disappeared in the oven. At the exit I get delicious pastries, but it is the same, if I had to use sugar. The only difference in the flavor.

Now I want to address the question of cost. 1 kg of sugar at this moment It costs 40 rubles. A 1 kg of honey - 350 rubles. The data are taken from the site portal-meda. ruTo has replaced sugar in a recipe will cost me about 310 rubles. I think it is unnecessarily expensive.

I summarize. I do not advise to replace sugar for honey is only due to the fact that honey is useful. During baking it loses its quality. If you are suddenly in the morning we decided to cook the cake and did not find homes sugar, but you had a lot of honey - replace. Now I tell how to do it.

How to replace the sugar with honey.To replace the 100 g of sugar, I take a quarter of the honey, that is 25 grams. Since 20% of honey takes liquid from the recipe, I put away 5 grams of liquid. This national method. Keep in mind that if your honey is sugar, it contains less liquid.

P.S. Once again, yeah, honey can replace sugar. But is it worth the forces, you decide.
