Is it possible to substitute sweetened condensed milk for regular milk in buttercream icing recipe?

jomayhudson 9074505

Every recipe I find calls for brown sugar. What can be used instead, but still keep the flavor?

frederickdeborah 3836533

I'll be keeping these substitutions inside my cupboard door for quick referance when I'm out of the product called for and have no time to run to the store...Grateful for this information!


Could tell what a stick of butter weighs please. Also I would like to know please what is "cool whip" I'm a Kiwi in NZ and don't know these terms. Many thanks

I was really looking for sugar substitution for honey or apple sauce. this is a brownie receipe that i think has a lot of sugar. or can i just cut the amount of sugar that i put in. hope to hear from you.

Hello Ladylove223, I'm very happy we could help you out with this. Thanks much!

I finally found how to do the equivalent to Buttermilk that I have been looking for --I have a favorite cake recipe that calls for it & since I don't like it I don't buy it. Thanks for having this list of equivalents on your web page. D. O'Connor
