Which of these baking quotes is your favorite?

Here are a few answers to commonly asked baking questions in case you need a few more tips.

If you are like me, you think you have an ingredient, then bake only to realize you are missing something.

The worst is thinking you have baking powder, only to discover what you actually have is baking soda.


You can substitute buttermilk, plain yogurt, and vinegar for baking powder.

If you need baking soda and don’t have that, you can use baking powder!

Just remember to use three times the amount of baking powder than the amount of soda the recipe calls for.

If you want to bake healthier versions of things, you can switch up the flour for a lower-carb option, like bean flour.

Chickpea and Garbanzo bean flour are some wonderful options.

You can replace sugar with applesauce and use a banana instead of oil.

Do you have any other great substitutes for ingredients?
