Tips

Juice or Milk for Water

Juice or Milk for Water

You can substitute juice or milk instead of water in cakes. However, follow these precautionary measures: For juice, you may only use fresh. Canned juices contain methyl silicone that can prevent cakes from rising to their full potential. Fresh juice should be used in ratio with water to avoid a dry, coarse texture. For milk, use the exact amount specified by the recipe.


Keep cakes moist

Keep cakes moist

Whenever a recipe for brownies, cakes, or cookies calls for oil, I substitute the exact amount of un-sweetened applesauce for the oil instead. My recipes are always much moister than when I have used oil. I get compliments from family and friends always asking what I do differently than they do if they just follow the recipe. :)
