Topic: breadmaking without using butter/vege shortening

  Hi Diana

A few questions to ask:

1. Can butter/vegetable shortening be replaced by healthy oils like canola or olive oil.

2. For instance if i make a bread which requires 30 gr of butter, how much of the equivalent of oil do i use?

In view of the unhealthy trans fat found in commercial breads as well as reducing butter in baking, i was thinking of using healthy vege oil to use in bread baking.

Thank you.

  Mother's Certified Diabetes Educator told me to use butter in place of solid shortening like Crisco. She's a Registered Dietitian who has been looking over some of the recipes I use. I've never tried using the no trans fat variety of Crisco. Nancy also suggested that I switch to using Canola oil in place of corn oil.
