There are many advantages in cooking with honey. Honey is "hygroscopic" (absorbs moisture), so that foods baked with it tend to be softer, moister and keep their freshness longer. Different honeys also have different flavours, which can complement and add an extra dimension to a dish. Honey is also ideal for microwave baking as the fructose in honey increases the browning effect. And for the same sweetening power, honey has fewer calories than sugar.
