In A Pinch? Substitutes For Baking Ingredient

Posted on

SubstitutesI was posting a recipe today that required star anise.  That is something that you generally buy at a chinese market.  Something that you don’t use very often.  So I don’t really have at home.   So I went looking for the substitute which is anise seed.  In my search, I found this really cool article on baking substitutions.  From the article:

You’re halfway through a brownie recipe when you realize you have no eggs, and the grocery store is closed. You could go ask the babe next door, but it’s late, and you’re already in your pajamas, and at that moment, an abandoned recipe is 100% preferable to a real life interpersonal interaction. We’ve all been there. (Right? This happens to you guys, too, right??)

Don’t give up just yet! This substitution chart, which covers the many basic but necessary ingredients you’re likely to run out of, will help keep you cooking, and your neighbor blind to the truth that you just made a pan of brownies for one

Here are a couple of substitutions:

Baking powder

Corn Syrup

I had wanted to  point out the high fructose corn syrup substitute.  There has been a big brouhaha over the possible dangers of high fructose corn syrup.  There is even a court case over it.

Happy Baking!
