Did You Know

You can incorporate an extra virgin olive oil in baking recipes that call for butter and you will automatically make your recipes healthier because olive oil is lower in saturated fat than butter. Additionally, mixing olive oil into your recipes enhances the item and offers the food a nuanced flavor that will leave your guests clamoring for your baking secrets.

Use Olive Oil in Place of Butter

 

BUTTER TO OLIVE OIL CONVERSION TABLE

In most baked goods, extra virgin olive oil can be substituted for butter or margarine. You will have to carefully add the oil to the recipe using the ratio of three parts extra virgin olive oil being equal to four parts butter. If the baking recipe calls for eight tablespoons of butter you will substitute six tablespoons of olive oil.

Butter/Margarine

Olive Oil

1 teaspoon = 3/4 teaspoon
1 tablespoon = 2 1/4 teaspoons
2 tablespoons = 1 1/2 tablespoons
1/4 cup = 3 tablespoons
1/3 cup = 1/4 cup
1/2 cup = 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons
2/3 cup = 1/2 cup
3/4 cup = 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon
1 cup = 3/4 cup

 

 

 

Convert Vegetable or Canola Oil to Olive Oil

If your recipe calls for vegetable or canola oil, you should definitely substitute those oils with gourmet extra virgin olive oil. Any dessert recipe that calls for vegetable oil as an ingredient is a perfect choice for olive oil. In these recipes, the swap would be a one-to-one ratio. In other words if the recipe calls for one cup of vegetable oil, you would simply use extra virgin olive oil. Imagine how the smooth, delicious flavor of gourmet olive oil will enhance the flavor of a chocolate or a carrot cake!

 


CHOOSE PREMIUM EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OILS

Incorporating gourmet olive oil in your baking recipes is best if you’re using high quality extra virgins such as those offered at Oliviers&Co. Using a low quality olive oil is akin to cooking with a wine that you wouldn’t want to drink. As chefs know, low-quality oils can bring with them an overpowering taste that can noticeably change the flavor of your baked goods.

Experiment with adding extra virgin olive oils to your recipes and gauge the reaction of your diners when they sample your baked goods with the delicious, nuanced flavor that only gourmet olive oil can bring.

Baking with Aromatic Olive Oils

Oliviers&Co has created unique Aromatic Olive Oils by specially fusing herbs, spices, & other flavoring agents with the freshly harvested olives during the crushing process.

 

YOUR DAILY DOSE OF ANTIOXIDANTS & A LITTLE BIT OF FLAVOR

The higher the pressure used, & the faster it is released, the more quickly the infusion takes place & the more flavor is extracted.

Most Oliviers&Co producers use a traditional grinding method, the stone mill, to extract the oil from the olives. This is done within a 24 hour period in a cold press to reduce oxidation & retain the highest quality in content of the polyphenols, antioxidants, vitamins & most importantly flavor.
