What is it?
Trex is a vegitable fat, sold in the UK, that can be used for baking.
I have used it for sponges and a substitute in buttercream.
- Dairy free
- No hydrogenated vegetables fats
- Leaves your mixture white
- Allows for vibrant colouring in sponges and buttercream
- Takes on flavours that are more "crisp" than with butter or margerine
- You use less of it in the recipe
- It can be greasy
- You need to amend your recipe
- Very sloppy if too warm
- Flavourings are essential
