The British Heart Foundation’s Victoria Taylor offers advice on how to make baking healthier for you and your loved ones in her article, 10 Tips For Healthier Baking. She says that everything should be done in moderation in the article. Even though this is a well-known maxim, it helps to be reminded of it. She says that you can surely enjoy sweets occasionally as long as you aren’t eating cakes every single day.

Is there another way to promote moderation while consuming those sweets? Make sure your serving sizes are appropriate. You can always prepare a smaller quantity, which will still taste delicious but have fewer calories and fat per serving.

In keeping with optimizing flavor with minimal ingredients, here’s a baking trick for pies: merely top the pie with crust rather than covering the entire dish from top to bottom. This preserves the great crust flavor while reducing the fat and calories.

Use less salt, suggests Victoria to her readers. You’re in luck if you like baking your own bread! You may regulate the amount of salt in your bread by baking it yourself. And since bread is the bakery item we usually consume the most of, the less salt we use there, the better.

Another advice? When baking, use healthier ingredients. For instance, using whole grain flour in place of white flour boosts the amount of fiber, which also makes your baking heartier and satisfying. (However, with this specific substitution, it’s important to remember that it will give your dish a somewhat nuttier flavor; if you find that it affects the flavor, you may want to use half of the wholegrain flour and half of the white flour.)

Making quick soda bread with baking soda instead of yeast as the raising agent; using fewer or healthier icings (such as a glace icing instead of buttercream); and picking the right pastry (which can make a big difference with fat and calorie content) are some additional tips mentioned in the article. She also suggests substituting unsaturated fat for butter when baking. As our Lustre Craft aficionados are aware, we frequently use an olive oil cooking spray for many of our dishes and suggest doing the same to reduce calories and fat whenever possible.

Overall, research appears that simple adjustments to your baking technique might have a significant impact on the preparation of healthier meals. To joyful, healthy baking!
