How to Substitute SweetLeaf Liquid Stevia for Honey in Baking

Stevia is a natural sweetener made from leaves of South American plants. This extract has been used in South America for centuries as a way to sweeten foods and beverages without increasing calories or changing blood sugar levels. Stevia is 10 to 15 times sweeter than sugar and honey. It must be used cautiously during baking, so other ingredients need to be adjusted to maintain the consistency of the finished product.


Replace 1/4 cup of honey with 1 teaspoon of Stevia concentrate.

Step 2

Replace each quarter cup of honey with 1/3 teaspoon Stevia venoris. A little Stevia juice has a long way to go, so experiment with this ratio until you find a sweetness you're satisfied with.

Step 3

Subtracts the amount of Stevia liquid added from the amount of honey required in the formula to determine the loss. The liquid was dug out. For example, if you subtract 2 tablespoons of steviose concentrate from 1/2 cup of honey, or 8 tablespoons, you retain 6 tablespoons of the missing moisturizer.

Step 4

Add an alternative humidifier to the formula to explain the lost honey. Water increases moisture without changing the flavor or nutrition of the cake. Adding milk or shredded tofu to add nutrition and moisture, or replacing eggs or egg whites to make the finished product fluffy. Add extra sweetness and moisture with unsweetened apple sauce or banana puree.
