Honey is a wonderful substitute for sugar for many reasons; In addition to having a complex flavor, it contains several types of sugars like fructose and glucose ( the natural sugars found in fruits), and also has medicinal benefits like anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.
Intermiel is one of my favourite brands; it’s 100% Quebec honey, and is available at most of the farmers markets in many different size formats.
As to the types, there are many varieties of honey, such as wild flower, buckwheat, clover, and blueberry.
My personal favourite is blueberry honey because its a light tasting honey, like wild flower, but with a lovely finishing note of blueberry. It adds a nice nuance of flavor to baked goods.
If you are concerned about sugar, or if you want to try and jazz up an old recipe, try substituting your sugar with honey.

One of my best friends approached me last week to make her cupcakes for a special event, and upon requesting my services she told me that she wanted something really cool- not the everyday cupcake. Excited to do something different, … Continue reading
It’s no difficult feat to sell someone on the idea of strawberry shortcake; the light and airy vanilla cake, fresh tart strawberries, and rich whip cream make up (in my mind) the perfect dessert. In the last few months, strawberry … Continue reading
