Basil: 2 teaspoons fresh equals 1 teaspoon dried. In other words, if the original recipe calls for two teaspoons of finely chopped fresh basil, you can simply substitute the amount with one teaspoon of dried basil leaves
Ginger: Ground ginger is the preferred form for baked goods and spiced drinks, whereas fresh ginger is more often used in savory dishes, especially in Asian cuisine. According to Colorado State University Extension, 1 tablespoon of fresh chopped herbs, such as ginger, is equivalent to 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger.
Powdered Coffee Creamer for Dry Milk
How to Substitute Powdered Coffee Creamer for Dry Milk
by M.T. Wroblewski ; Updated November 15, 2017
Make an equal substitution of dry milk for powdered coffee creamer. If your recipe calls for one tablespoon of dry milk, replace it with one tablespoon of powdered coffee creamer.
Take the extra step of ensuring that the powdered coffee creamer dissolves – just as it’s meant to do in coffee – by first blending it thoroughly with another wet ingredient in your recipe, such as water, oil or an egg.
Evaluate whether you might need to make other minor tweaks to your recipe because of the powdered coffee creamer. For example, if a recipe that normally calls for dry milk suggests that you “may” wish to add a pinch of sugar or vanilla extract to sweeten the dry milk, you may not have to make such an addition if you’re using a sweetened powdered coffee creamer – especially one that is vanilla-flavored. If the coffee creamer you're using seems very sweet, feel free to reduce some of the sugar or other sweeteners used in the recipe. Adjust the recipe to taste.
Experiment with different flavors of powdered coffee creamer to enhance your recipes or to add a trace of flavor. For example, you can find powdered creamers in caramel and hazelnut, two flavors that could improve a cinnamon bread or muffin recipe that normally calls for dry milk.
