29: My Favorite Fats for Baking

Released August 29, 2022 by Sue's Healthy Minutes with Sue Becker | The Bread Beckers


In most bread baking, fats provide tenderness, moisture, and color, as well as, flavor to breads. The type of fat used in a recipe, along with the method for incorporating it into the other ingredients, will influence both the texture and flavor of the finished product. Last week, Sue Becker shared that Extra Virgin Olive Oil is her oil of choice for most of her bread baking, such as yeast bread and most quick breads. Today, she shares her favorite solid fats that she uses in baking pastries, that includes cakes, cookies, brownies, biscuits, and pie dough. For more information, visit breadbeckers.com.
