Good Enough to Bake

Just because you follow a plant-based diet or have food allergies doesn’t mean you have to fake it to bake it. Earth Balance® products are the real thing, with real flavor included. As long as we’re involved, no more cardboard-tasting cakes will be gracing your kitchen counters. And that’s a promise.

So how do I bake with…

Earth Balance® Buttery Spreads, Organic Coconut Spread and Baking Sticks?

1 cookie, 2 cookies, 3 cookies, 4. Make tasty cakes, croissants, biscuits and more. Sorry, we just couldn’t help ourselves—a rhyme just felt right. But seriously, vegan baking doesn’t have to be void of flavor and fun. Our spreads, baking sticks and shortening aren’t only tops for taste, they also have all the nutrition benefits of plant-based ingredients.

Switch from Butter

Earth Balance® Nut Butters?

Bars, cakes, fudge, cookies and peanut butter cups can all be made the Earth Balance way: With all natural ingredients and plenty of flavor. Our nut butters are made with our own expeller-pressed oils, so trans fats are out, too. Not to mention they also made great additions to crusts, frostings and fillings. You may need to install another oven…

Earth Balance® Soymilk?

Instead of dairy milk, which many have to avoid due to the lactose, our soymilks are wonderful dairy-free ways to make your baking its best. And with our vanilla and chocolate varieties, there’s no telling what infinite sweet inspirations you can create. Just replace milk or cream with any of our soymilks to add the moisture you need for successful baking and the flavor you want for the whole family.

Earth Balance® MindfulMayo™ Dressing and Sandwich Spread?

Sure, mayo isn’t always the first ingredient you think of when it comes to baking. But did you know ingredients like mayonnaise and sour cream are often used in sweet treats for added moisture? It’s true (and it’s delicious). The sweeter ingredients overpower the flavor of the creams, so it’s not like your cake ends up tasting like a sandwich. And baking doesn’t always mean sweet either. A creamy, bubbly casserole made with our MindfulMayo™ Dressing and Sandwich Spreads are a surefire way to make any dinnertime shine.
