You probably mean me? I don't use dairy products in baking as my husband is intolerant to dairy. He cannot digest even very small amounts, like what is in a lot of supermarket/bakery breads. There are websites which give conversions for substituting butter/milk with veg oil, but I just do a rough 1-for-1 volume substitution. I don't bake stuff that requires very careful measuring! There are also websites which have dairy-free recipes. You do lose the buttery and milky taste, and the texture can be a little tougher, but we have got used to it.

I don't bake all that much and use mostly very ordinary ingredients, so I get most of my ingredients from NTUC or Sheng Siong, and occasionally from Phoon Huat.


slmkhoo,
what veg oil to subt for butter, i think of olive oil/spread , canola,sunflower?
i love butter too, but since my gal loves own bake, i think it is healthier to use veg oil

I use whatever veg oil I have on hand, usually canola or sunflower. Some olive oil can be a bit stronger in flavour, and peanut oil too, so it could affect the taste of the baked product. Some spreads cannot take high heat, so do read the packaging. To retain some buttery taste, you can try substituting oil for half the butter.

I buy from NTUC. Dun really bake often.

The other day need to use up the apples cos hubby travels and there are a few apples in the fridge.

Then need to use up the blueberry jam cos ah boy no longer spreads it on his bread.

Never tried substituting veg oil in butter cake. I love butter :lol:


Tats so clever of u. Using leftover stuffs to bake cakes. Me getting more and more motivation to buy an oven, haha

Elder boy is meeting his friends tomorrow for dinner before the flight.

No need for me to see him off at the airport
