Can I use honey instead of sugar in recipes?

Using Honey Instead of Sugar

If you prefer to use honey instead of sugar when baking, you can use it in most recipes as long as you remember these rules. When making cakes and cookies, you can replace up to half the sugar with honey, but reduce liquid by 1/4 cup for every cup of sugar that is replaced. In fruit bars you can replace up to 2/3 the amount of sugar, again reducing the liquid by 1/4 cup for every cup sugar.

It would be nice if this would have been broken down to tablespoons as well as cups. Really good information though, just what I was looking for. Wanted to substitute honey in my bread instead of sugar.
