BAKING TIPS

We’ve been baking alongside kiwis for 75 years, and have learned a thing or two in the process! From time savers, recipe tricks and ingredient substitutions, our range of handy tips will have you baking like a pro.

Colours

  • Ingredients such as lemon juice will cause colours to change, so be wary when colouring anything containing acidic ingredients.
  • Always mix coloured icing in daylight, as fluorescent lighting can make it appear slightly warmer or cooler than it actually is.

Essence

  • For a low fat version of coconut milk, combine 2 tsp of Natural Coconut Essence per ¼ cup of light evaporated milk or skim milk.
  • Combine a few drops of Natural Lemon Essence with olive oil, crushed garlic and black pepper and rub over chicken for a delicious marinade.

Baking Soda

  • Baking soda can be sprinkled into shoes, garbage bins, dishwashers and smelly drains to eliminate bad odors.
  • Mix 1:1 with water to remove grease and burned-on mess in saucepans, roasting tins.

Cream of Tartar

  • Add when whipping cream to help to maintain texture and volume. Add ¼ tsp for every 2 cups of cream.
  • Add a pinch of cream of tartar when boiling vegetables to help them retain their bright, fresh colour.
