is no problem. I like to use it (2 T) to re-hydrate the dried fruits in my recipe.  No need to adjust anything for this small amount.  Here is my recipe so you can compare.  It makes a great bread, cake or cupcakes.  Love it with cream cheese icing :-)

A very nice recipe dabrownman. I wouldn't componsate for the bourbon either. I have found in my bakes of cakes that the more alcohol the better. It needs to be substantial so it is a noticeable taste.

good luck
