Emergency Substitutions

Contributed by: Chris, WebAdmin. of RecipesNow.com

Have you ever started to make a dish, only to suddenly find that you either don't have or have run out of one of the ingredients in the recipe. Fear not - you still can make the dish using a substitute ingredient. According to Linda Stradley and Andra Cook, co-authors of "What's Cooking America" (BookPartners), no substitution will yield a product exactly like that made by the item it is replacing. However, many recipes will work with substitutes. The following is a list of emergency ingredient substitutions that will help you when your baking supplies run short.

Ingredient = Substitute

  • Milk, nonfat - 1 cup = 1/3 cup powdered nonfat milk + 3/4 cup water
  • Bread crumbs - 1 cup = 3/4 cup cracker crumbs
  • Honey - 1 cup = 11/4 cups granulated sugar + 1/4 cup liquid in recipe
  • Eggs, whole - 2 large eggs = 3 small eggs
  • Garlic, fresh - 1 clove = 1 teaspoon garlic salt or 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Lemon juice - 1 teaspoon = 1/2 teaspoon vinegar
  • Sugar, brown - 1/2 cup = 2 tablespoons molasses + 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • Tomato sauce - 1 cup = 3/8 cup tomato paste + 1/2 cup water
