Out of an ingredient?
Save time and money with these ingenious swaps.
LIGHT CORN SYRUP
An equal amount of Honey is a tasty (cleaner) swap to light corn syrup.
CREAM OF TARTER
→ LEMON JUICE
Adding the same amount of lemon juice to a recipe will take the place of Cream of Tartar.
→ CINNAMON+ GINGER + CLOVES
Equal parts of cinnamon + ginger + cloves makes a great dupe of Allspice.
Applesauce and vegetable oil are a 1:1 ratio when it comes to baking!
→ Vinegar + Milk
1 tablespoon vinegar + 1 cup of milk will allow for a delicious recipe that calls for buttermilk.
→ Cocoa + Butter
Although it is hard to run out of chocolate, mixing equal parts of cocoa + butter will do the trick for a recipe.
1/4 cup of mayonnaise will act as the binding agent for every one egg that is missing.
Out of cornstarch? Flour will do the trick! Just make sure to use double the amount called for (ex: 1 tbsp. cornstarch = 2 tbsp. flour).
→ Pancake Mix
Since Pancake Mix is almost entirely made up of flour, it can be used in recipes when your flour runs out.
→ Light Cream
An equal amount of light cream makes for a handy ingredient swap when there is no evaporated milk available.
→ Sugar + Water
Mixing equal parts of white sugar + water will give any recipe the hint of sweetness in place of honey.
An equal amount of plain yogurt will swap with mayonnaise for a (healthier) recipe.
→ Baking Soda + Cream Of Tartar
Mixing equal parts of baking soda + cream of tartar can be swapped with baking powder.
