Can you replace butter with margarine in baking?

because butter is so dare I was just wondering if you can replace the butter with margarine with the same results?

I think you can with some/most things.. but you will get a different flavour

Definitely. I do all my baking with marg, from scones, biscuits, cakes and slices, loaves and desserts.Never have a problem with it, although I use a better quality marg like meadowlea, Flora or sunrise. Avoid the golden harvest or budget brands. I pick up marg on special, freezes fine. Pak'nsave often have 2 meadowlea for $5, or sunrise at $1.99. Just use the same quantity as butter, cream your mixture well.

Ps I don't notice any difference in flavour, prefer it in biccies and loaves, and makes nice light scones.

Always use butter for baking, but should be ok.

You mean dear.
Yes, except where you need the butters hardening ability.
