Great British Bake Off inspiring home bakers

With TV programmes like the BBC’s Great British Bake Off firmly reigniting the nation’s love affair with baking, we thought we’d share some tips and recipes for healthier, yet still delicious, bakes – so you can enjoy them all the more!

Baking with rapeseed oil

Rapeseed oil, sometimes labelled vegetable oil, can be used in place of other fats in baking such as butter and contains less saturated fat than all other commonly used cooking oils and fats. Health advice recommends we reduce saturated fat where we can as we’re eating too much. Using rapeseed oil instead of butter when baking cakes or muffins will reduce the overall saturated fat content and your bakes will be moist and light, with great flavour.
