I have a question about the recipe "Baked Ricotta and Goat Cheese with Candied Tomatoes" from TheRunawaySpoon.I am out of brown sugar. Would honey work as a sub or any other suggestions?
if you happen to have plain old granulated sugar and molasses, that is the closest substitution. the proportion is usually about 1 cup of sugar to 1 tablespoon of molasses (for light brown sugar), so for a quarter cup, i'd use 1/4 cup sugar and just shy of 1 teaspoon of molasses. or, i'd just go with regular sugar.
or, if you happen to have a sugar like turbinado, that would be my second choice after the sugar-molasses mix. plain granulated sugar won't have the complexity of the brown sugar, but will certainly impart the sweetness.
thanks a lot!
you're welcome! i hope it turns out : )
