How to Bake: Must-Have Baking Substitutions

7 no-fail baking substitutions that won't ruin your recipe.

I’m more of a cook than a baker. So while I have an arsenal of dried herbs and spices and savory condiments, my baking cupboard is slightly more bare. Since I don’t keep tabs on what’s in there, there have been times that I’ve realized that I’m missing a ingredient or two after I’ve already embarked on a baking project. While I have a grocery store less than a mile from my house, it’s usually not worth the inconvenience to me to go get what I’m missing—especially when I have a perfectly good substitute in my kitchen already! Here are 7 no-fail baking substitutions you can make without ruining your recipes.
