I want to make a pumpkin banana bread, but don't have the 1/2 cup of honey it calls for. What can I use instead?

I might have 1/4 cup, could I use it and 1/4 cup of something else? There is 1/2 cup sugar in the recipe already. I do not have molasses or Karo syrup or anything like that.

  • Is the honey for flavor, or does it help with the consistency? If it's for flavor, it might be okay without it. Or with just the 1/4 cup that you have.

  • You could always go with maple syrup.

  • Try applesauce and a bit of white sugar or brown sugar... You'll retain both the moistness and sweetness needed in the recipe.

  • I think it's for both. I don't notice the flavor of it usually, but I really don't think it would be the same without. I decided to send my DD over to my IL's to raid their stash.

  • I would think the same amount of karo syrup (corn syrup) or maybe even maple syrup would work and also add a new flavor that would be quite tasty!
    Otherwise, try google and type in "substitutions for honey in sweet bread recipe" and I'll bet you get some hits?
