Rules for Subsuming Honey for Sugar : 


  • The Rule: For every 1 cup of sugar, substitute 1/2 to 2/3 cup honey.
    The Rule: For every 1 cup of honey you’re using, subtract 1/4 cup of other liquids from the recipe.
    The Rule: Add 1/4 teaspoon baking soda for every 1 cup honey used.
    The Rule: Reduce the temperature of the oven by 25°F.

Brown Sugar :

Can be swapped evenly. But it may change the colors depending on how much you use.   

My swap  ? 6 T of white sugar for 6 T brown sugar.

Did change the color a little and a little sweeter but it was fine in taste, Lisa
