Whether you’re baking a mouth-watering sponge cake for a special occasion or creating a selection of delicious biscuits and cookies for the little ones, a great ingredient for all baked dishes is Filippo Berio Mild & Light Olive Oil. Enjoyed by food lovers around the world, Filippo Berio is the ideal companion for the baking fanatic.

Filippo Berio Mild & Light Olive Oil has an ultra light flavour so carries no olive flavouring meaning it’s incredibly versatile and can be used in a variety of savoury and sweet baked dishes. It allows the flavour of other ingredients to really shine through and ensures the dish is light and airy with a lovely moist texture. It’s particularly good for sweet recipes such as cakes, biscuits and muffins and has the added benefit of containing high levels of vitamins and monounsaturated fats, making it a healthier alternative to butter and margarine.

Olive oil is one of the most stable and healthy cooking mediums to use when preparing food and Italians have long been using olive oil in desserts and cake making. With the growing world-wide preference for olive oil, using it in baking is becoming increasingly common place. Unlike most olive oils, Filippo Berio Mild & Light Olive Oil can also be heated to high temperatures, making it ideal for everyday use.

As a general guide, you can use olive oil in any baking recipe where butter is required. The quantity needed usually remains the same, so for example if 100g of butter is required it can be replaced with 100ml of olive oil.

Also available is the Filippo Berio Mild & Light Olive Oil Spray, which makes it easier than ever to control the amount of oil you use when cooking. Ideal for spraying on baking trays or directly over food before the dish goes in the oven.
