Honey is very versatile and healthy and tasty and ... shall I go on? To begin with - here is a general formulation which will exchange sugar for honey in recipes.
Baked goods made with honey have a rich, moist quality and do not get stale quickly. To substitute honey for sugar in a favorite recipe, remember these changes:
*Use about 3/4 cup honey in place of every cup of sugar.
*Reduce the liquid in the recipe by 1/4 cup for every 3/4 of honey you use. If there is no liquid to reduce, add 2 tablespoons of flour for each cup of honey used in the recipe.
*Add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda for every cup of honey.
*Lower the oven temperature by about 25 degrees to prevent excessive browning in a honey-rich recipe.

Are you wondering what else to do with honey? You can make a pecan-honey butter that is great on waffles, toast and pancakes. Honey is great for grilling, too. The next time you need a new and tasty treat to grill with, make a honey-mustard barbecue sauce. 2

Pancakes made from oatmeal? Yes, if you're Irish, and why not. These are delicious Remember that you should not over-mix pancakes - lumps don't matter..
1 cup quick-cooking oatmeal
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt

Heat oiled griddle or frying pan until very hot. You can test its heat by sprinkling a few drops of water in pan. If drops sizzle, pan is ready.
Pour batter onto griddle using a small measuring cup. When bubbles appear on the top of the batter, lift cake to see if it is brown on bottom. When brown, flip over and cook on second side. Serve immediately.
