Review Detail

Hi there! Thank you for this great recipe! I can't wait to try it. I have just ordered some soy lecithin liquid online so will have to wait for it to arrive before I can make it. One question, do you think it would work using olive oil in place of the canola/safflower/sunflower oil? I only use olive oil at home and don't really want to buy a whole bottle of canola oil for one recipe..

Btw, for those who can't find soy lecithin liquid anywhere, iherb.com is an amazing website that sells just about anything, at very cheap prices. I just ordered a 473ml bottle of soy lecithin liquid for $7.74 (USD). It's an American company but they ship all over the world, even little old NZ (where I am from). It really is a fantastic website, I have found most products from this website to be cheaper than what I can buy them for here in NZ.

Ps. If you use my code QUG080 you'll get $10 off your first order of $40 or more, or $5 off orders under $40.

Thanks again! :-) :-) :-)

Hi Joanie! This Vegan Butter will definitely work with olive oil. I've been wanting to do a lemon olive oil version but haven't gotten around to it yet. I also have been meaning to update most of my vegan baking recipes to note that they can be made with light olive oil in addition to safflower, sunflower, etc. Oil choice is like religion;) Olive oil is slightly more solid at refrigerator temperature than canola so the Vegan Butter will probably be a tiny bit more firm but it might not be noticeable. Good luck!
