Tips

Honey Crystalizing

Honey Crystalizing

Put honey container in hot water if crystalizes, then stir until combined! ENJOY!


Non-fat Yogurt for Oil

Non-fat Yogurt for Oil

I have used a bit of the oil while replacing the rest with non-fat yogurt in both brownies and cakes. It produces a different texture and taste than applesauce. Experimenting will tell you which proportions of each you prefer...I've used different combinations and haven't been dipleased with any of my results!
