I have a confession. I rarely follow a recipe from start to finish. A close friend suggested I not keep the mixer running while I run to do a load of laundry.
Apparently there is a legitimate reason to keep the wet and dry ingredients separate. A friend explained this to me the other night and my argument was, “How do the dry and wet ingredients know? Incorporating a recipe substitute was a great way to practice the art of following a recipe.
When I find a recipe substitute that works I want to pay it forward for other want to be bakers who might share similar recipe traits with me.
I never knew canned pumpkin made a substitute for butter, oil and eggs if I had not purchased Libby’s brand. It must have been on sale.
It is a genius idea. So really, this is the only image to pin for recipe substitutes. This works with sauces, muffins and cookies.
I might add this substitute to these muffins.
