Use our Natural Pure Honey as a nutritious sweetener while you cook.  Honey is a humectant (a moisture absorber) which can be used to keep all of your precious baked goods moist and chewy. 

You can substitute honey for equal amounts of sugar in many liquid recipes. In baked goods, substitute sugar for up to half the amount with honey 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 teaspoon baking soda for each cup of honey used. Reduce oven temperature by 25F (or by 15C), because honey will brown baking goods more than sugar. 

To measure honey for a recipe (without a sticky mess), spray measuring cup with vegetable oil first, then measure the amount of honey needed for the recipe. You'll be amazed at how easy honey will release out of the measuring cup!  We also recommend our Honey Slice bars as a quick and easy way to measure and incorporate honey into all of your favorite sweet recipes.

Banana bread (makes 1 loaf)

            1 cup unbleached white flour

            1 cup whole wheat flour

            1/4 cup raw wheat germ

Preheat the oven to 325F (or 160C). Butter a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan. Combine the white flour, whole-wheat flour, wheat germ, salt, and soda in a medium bowl and set aside.  In a large, heavy saucepan, melt the butter and stir in the honey until evenly mixed and just lukewarm. Add the eggs and banana, combining thoroughly. Stir in the dry ingredients in two parts, adding the hot water between additions to make a light, smooth dough. Stir in nuts or fruits as desired. Push into the prepared pan, level the surface, and bake 70 minutes, or until humped, brown, and firm to the touch. Cool in the pan on a rack. Turn out, wrap well, and store a day before slicing.
