Quick sugar question...

I can substitute equal amount of brown sugar in place of white sugar in a banana bread recipe right...?

Just thought I'd make sure first TIA!!!

It depends on the recipe. I know that brown sugar is acidic--ChefJune, could help you more than I if you post the recipe.

Yes, dee, you can. Just make sure the brown sugar is packed into your measuring cup.

I don't see a problem with that recipe either. I am awaiting my copy of bakewise so that I can better understand the science behind baking. I know that different leaveners are used when you have an acidic batter. That is why I was hoping ChefJune would way in, she is trained as a chef and is a baker.
