My great grandmother left me a box FULL of recipes she used throughout her life, and it is one of my most PRIZED possessions.

In that box that is STUFFED full of HUNDREDS of recipes, is a chart she used to do quick baking substitutions. I need to laminate the thing, because it is something I want to keep FOREVER!

Lucky for YOU, I am going to share this little bit of knowledge with you. You’re welcome in advance.

I’m just going to go ahead and tell you — you are going to want to keep this information for future reference!

I can’t tell you HOW many times I’ve needed to change All-Purpose Flour into Self-Rising Flour, or Regular Milk into Buttermilk!


This cheat sheet has come in SO handy during the years. I wouldn’t have been able to make Cobbler or Biscuits a PLETHORA of times without these substitutions!

Thank you to all the grandmas out there, for being so incredibly amazing, and knowing all the answers to all the things!

  1. You are so lucky to have inherited such gems and it is even better that your grandma has a granddaughter who uses it. So much gets lost.

  2. You should make some of her hand written recipes you have there (so lucky you have them ) printed on T-towels & give as gifts to other women in your family

  3. just right click on image open in new tab and print from tool bar

  4. I right clicked on it and saved image then opened Microsoft word and right clicked and hit paste then I printed it from there.

  5. I copy the item and email it to myself and then print it out. Go to the photo of the handwritten item, hold finger down til menu appears, press copy button then go to email and paste in body. Insert your email address in the the send line and send to yourself

  6. I am desperately trying to print out the substitution chart – please advise how. Thank you.

    1. If you are on your tablet, just push on the picture release and it will ask if you want to copy or share.

    2. Take a screen shot of what you want to save. Edit the picture, save to your device. Then prin it like you normally do.

    3. If you click on the three little dots at the top on ur right then click on open in crome then when it goes to it go to the pic and hold down and press it will pop up and say save to device or you can pic what ever you want gives more options thats how I do it with my phone

  7. This is fantastic to have, especially now! Is there any way I can copy this to use? Thank you soooo much & God bless! 🙂

  8. Nothing here for a sugar substitution using honey. What would that be?

  9. I am a member of hello fresh . So far we are having a bit of trouble with the deliveries , we are not recieving it . Plus we find that there a lot of meals with a lot of tomatoes, plus spices. People with stomach problems can not have all that, so why dont you come up with more playing food. With less spices . We have enjoyed it so far. But we dont have that many choices. It’s a shame, as we were really enjoying it. Thank you

  10. I was so glad to see what I could use for things I’m out of

  11. thank you soooo much I needed these charts … especially now that stores on low on supplies …
