Lemon Rapeseed Oil

baking with rapeseed oil

With each evening offering that little extra bit of daylight, it has turned our thoughts towards Spring. We have been getting in the mood for those lighter, warming evenings filled with fresh seafood and maybe the odd delicious dessert with a glass of wine to conclude the evening! 

Our classic Rapeseed Oil with added lemon essential oil offers all the health benefits you would find in the natural oil i.e. having the lowest saturated fat of any culinary oil as well as being big on flavour and extremely versatile.

  3. Add the flour and almonds and stir in gently.
  4. Pour the mixture into your oiled cake tin and bake for around 40-50 minutes.
