Baking using flora proactiv spread?

kvothe, Jan 10, 10:41pm
Hi all, just wondering if anyone has any cake recipes using flora proactiv instead of butter/margarine. Trying to make my baking healthier!

i use olive oil here, not that i bake cakes often.

It would cost you a small fortune and make very little difference.

just the other day i compared the fat content [only] of sunrise sunflower spread to flora original spread, the former has heaps less fat and was cheaper?!

So would using olive oil/vegetable oil be a better option? I'm a novice in terms of cooking so the advice is much appreciated :).

olive oil ingredients: olive oil

margarine ingredients: rather a lot of numbers, fat, salt and words only scientists can pronounce

Lol if you look up the wiki article there's plenty of components to olive oil too ;).

Have found some sponge cakes and carrot cakes on the internet that use NO butter :O :O :O Can't wait to try them out!

apparently you can freeze olive oil to make a spread, the last time i tried it it didn't freeze properly though.

I would use butter.Traditional baking is not healthy anyway.So just limit the mount you eat instead.

I use Pro Activ all the time in my baking - more expensive but I only bake one thing a week during the winter months.It never seems to make any different to the result.It is certainly much easier to cream with the sugar.I merely substitute Pro Activ for the butter specified in the recipe.
