Can you replace milk with water in baking?
Water. In an absolute pinch, water can sometimes be used as a substitute in a recipe that calls for milk…but you might experience some changes in flavor and texture. Try adding a tablespoon of butter for each cup of water you use—it’ll account for some of the milkfat you’re missing out on.
Can you dilute half and half with water to make milk?
To make your half and half as similar to whole milk as possible, you should use 3/4 cup of half and half to 1 cup of water. This will make a substitute for 1 cup of whole milk.
Can I use half and half instead of milk in scrambled eggs?
Adding a splash of half and half will keep the eggs moist and fluffy, and will create an almost custard-like texture. Whole milk will also work, but lower fat milk tends to make eggs watery. Use one tablespoon of cream, half and half, or whole milk for every three eggs being scrambled.
