replacing honey with maple syrup

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I want to make a recipe for a tea bread that uses honey along with white sugar. Frankly, I don't like honey and want to replace it with grade B maple syrup. Might that work? And do they carry comparable sweetness: 1/4 cup honey = 1/4 cup maple syrup?

Yea it would work fine. It may be a little moister because maple syrup is not as thick, but what's wrong with that?

Thanks! I was hoping that was the case. I'll make it tomorrow or the next day and report back.

You can also try to reduce the maple syrup by half first over low heat..

It came out just fine. Thank you again! In fact, the little bit of added moistness was a plus. With that wonderful smell of maple (instead of the cloying smell of honey :p--just my taste) I could justify this as breakfast as well as tea :D
