Coconut Oil In Baking

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I found spectrum coconut oil in my commissary. :D It was such a surprise. I'm going to request they stock spectrum shortening. I just wanted to know if you can sub the coconut oil for butter/margarine in baking? The health food store is a bit far and there is no safe margarine/shortening in our commissary. The coconut oil is cheaper on base too. TIA!

I've used it in place of butter or shortening. Gives an AMAZING flavor to chocolate chip cookies!

I bought coconut oil at the health food store once. Used it in baking and even to fry eggs. Between olive oil, coconut oil or lard I couldn't decide which one was worse on eggs <_< . I finally got use to the taste of olive oil and don't even notice it anymore.

I'm wandering, so back to the point ....We found that keeping coconut milk in the fridge so it stays solid works pretty well and is less expensive than the oil for baking.
