A Conversation for Butter and Margarine

Cooking with butter

Post 1


To my mind there is a massive difference between butter and margarine in baking as well as melted on toast etc. (with marmite of course). They make biscuits taste so much nicer and cakes are JUST NOT RIGHT without it.smiley - cake Butter melts in the mouth whereas margarine sort of coats the mouth and leaves a nasty oil-seed-rape taste in the mouth. I may be fussy, but I can tell the difference even in supermarket posh cookies where they mix the two. Not M & S though, they are The Bees Knees, specially their smashing scones. smiley - tea

Personally I'd go for butter any day, but then I don't like marg anyway - it feels like I'm chewing oil. smiley - yuk

Are you able to make two smaller cakes, one with butter and one with marg? Then you can report back and let us know which is best!
