By | source: Jan 18th, 2015

So, you’ve decided to make yourself some delicious, from-scratch brownies. You pull out the mixer, grease the pan and preheat the oven. You grab butter and eggs out of the fridge, and begin throwing the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Suddenly, your dreams of tasty, homemade brownies are dashed, as you realize you’re out of sugar.

Cheer up! It happens to the best of us. Luckily for you, there are substitutions to be made for almost every missing ingredient. In sugar’s case, you can try brown sugar or confectioner’s sugar – otherwise known as powdered sugar.

But maybe you start making brownies only to find you used the last egg for breakfast. Or your brownie recipe calls for chocolate, but you only have cocoa. You’re in luck, too! There are substitution ideas for nearly every baking ingredient, as well as some dinnertime necessities.

With this handy infographic, you never have to worry about being without a crucial ingredient ever again! Of course, if you don’t have any of these substitutions, you can always try your neighbor.
