I'm making an applesauce spice cake and just realized that I forgot to buy molasses at the market. I do have some maple syrup on hand. Would that work as a substitution? The recipe calls for 1/2 cup if that makes any difference. THANK YOU.
Fluffy, stackable pancakes are a Southern brunch staple. This recipe, developed by Birmingham, Alabama-based chef John Hall, makes a rich pancake that still maintains a light texture. Top your Ricotta Pancakes with smoky Brown Butter-Maple Syrup.
A Simple Molasses Substitution
Molasses is one of those ingredients you probably don't always have on hand, so you might be tempted to skip a recipe that calls for it. But in this CHOW Tip, Elliot Waring shares a simple substitution that'll mean you never have to skip a recipe again.
For these Rice Krispy Treats, we mixed in kettle-cooked potato chips for added crunch and a salty kick, upped the decadence with chocolate-covered peanuts, and added another level of sweetness with toasty graham crackers.
Oven-ready in just 20 minutes, these whole-grain donuts are much lighter in calories and sugar than the typical sour cream cake donut. Topped with a touch of glaze and nutty pecans, these delightful bites are a truly satisfying breakfast treat.
