Can cooked dried beans be used as a substitute for oil in baking?
Due to different molecular structures among other things, they cannot. Beans are not often used in baking.

homemade substitute . \nHOMEMADE SUBSTITUTE FOR BAKING POWDER \n. \n2 tbsp. cream of tartar\n1 tbsp. baking soda\n1 tbsp. cornstarch\n. \nSift together. Store in airtight container. One teaspoon of this is equal to 1 teaspoon store bought baking powder. \n. \n. \n. \nSource: www.cooks.com.… Baking powder has two active ingredients: Cream of tartar (tartaric acid) and baking soda (sodium bicarbonate). The reaction of these two creates a salt and a gas, (carbon dioxide) which, as it is larger in volume than the original ingredients, causes the food to fluff up, rise etc. If the other ingredients in the recipe include an acid (say milk which has lactic acid) then the cream of tartar can be reduced or eliminated, as the baking soda will react with any acid. It is important to get the proportions correct or there can be not enough rising or a bad tasting result! If too much of baking powder is used the resultant salt will also affect the taste of the food. Other methods of creating lightening or rising involve incorporating air in the food that will expand during the cooking process, (beating and folding), or adding yeast that as is grows, exhales gas, (carbon dioxide again) creating more of those useful bubbles. Foods that use rising require binders such as proteins, (examples are the gluten in some flours and the protein in egg whites,) as these are elastic enough to stop the bubbles bursting, but are fixed when dried out enough and the baking is complete. That is why a cake or souffle will fall or flop if removed from the oven before it is done: the bubbles are still elastic and can be broken. ( Full Answer )
For those who wish to reduce the fat content of the finished product, replacing oil with applesauce will cut calories and fat without adversely affecting the texture.. If you are substituting applesauce for shortening, you use half the amount of applesauce. So, 1/2 cup shortening is replaced with 1…/4 cup applesauce. ( Full Answer )
No, butter has a much lower smoking point than cooking oil. Butter will burn and taste bad if used over too high a heat.
If the recipe calls for 1 tablespoon cornstarch use 2 tablespoons of flour or 4 teaspoons quick cooking tapioca.
you just answered your own question because they are dry so you are rehydrating them meaning your adding water (moisture ) be it from sauces or what ever of liquid you use.
Yes indeed. The taste may be a little more nutty though but in pancakes and waffles its fine.
In baking, you can substitute apple sauce for most of the oil. For sauteing, you can use butter, but it may burn. For frying you have to use oil
You have to remove the paper label so it won't burn but that is not as important as first puncturing the top of the can. If you don't at least poke a hole in the top of the can, it will build up pressure and explode, sending hot beans all over the place and anyone standing nearby. Anything in a can …that is not vented and placed on a heat source will explode and send the contents flying. I have found that it is best to use a can opener and open the lid leaving a little unopened. You will need to stir the beans or they will burn to the bottom of the can. With the lid still attached you can close the lid to keep ashes out of your beans and when you take it off the fire, lift the lid up and use it as a handle. The can and the lid will be HOT so be careful. I've eaten many a can of beans that were cooked over a fire. For some reason they just taste better over a fire. ( Full Answer )
A very common substitute for dried mint in savory dishes is dried basil. I would recommend, however, that one forage or purchase fresh mint [it is very common] and just lay it out in the sun. It makes great tea and lasts for at least six months once dry.
The dried material absorbs water (in the case of the fruit, the water that was originally in them before drying). The added volume causes them to swell.
Yes. It should be melted and cooled to lukewarm before adding to other ingredients. However, one should consider that shortening is partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, which is not a healthy substitute for oil.
YES! For cakes and breads there shouldn't be a problem. You can't really use oil in most cookies. You would probably want to reduce other liquids just a little bit depending on the recipe.
The beans used are small white haricot beans often called pea beans or navy beans. Another answer is: Most store bought baked beans are made from haricot beans (also known as navy beans) soaked in a tomato sauce.. source: Ask Encyclopedia.
Yes. Your cornbread will probably taste better if you don't use olive oil. Olive oil is probably too fragrant and strong to put in a cornbread.
There usually are directions on the side of the can, but if not: Put a pan on the range/stove/fire and have the heat on low - pour the beans from the can into the pan - Cook them for about 3 minutes at maximum. In Addition: There are a wide variety of recipes for baked beans. Generally you fry …some bacon in a pan until it is about half cooked, then remove the bacon and add some chopped onion and chopped green peppers (and whatever other vegetables you might like such as jalapeno peppers) to the bacon grease in the pan. Cook until tender. Mix up your favorite recipe for barbecue sauce or use bottled barbecue sauce. You can also add things to the bottled sauce, such as brown sugar, vinegar, and mustard. Add beans to the onions and green peppers. You can use navy beans that have been soaked overnight or canned beans such as pork and beans or canned baked beans. Stir it all together, then add your barbecue sauce mixture. Bring it to a simmer, then pour into a large casserole or baking dish. Top the mixture with the partially cooked bacon, put in the oven and bake at 325 degrees F for about 2 hours. ( Full Answer )
I use chopped meat, onion and bacon. Fry it all up and drain. Add two cans (preferably) Joan of Arc butter beans, one can of Joan of Arc light kidney beans (I have tried other brands and they don't get tender enough), a very big can of pork and beans, brown sugar and white sugar, ketchup. So, to ans…wer your question, yes you can use butter beans for baked beans. ( Full Answer )
Nothing... It can b avoided by soaking them before cooking for about 6 hrs though...
There's usually a cooking time on the label for both the microwave and the stovetop next to the nutrition facts.
I have tried freezing baked beans, but found it turned them mushy. If you have an excessive amount of leftovers that you don't want to throw away, you'd lose nothing by giving it a try. I'd suggest using shallow containers, though.
Baked beans are made and baked before they are put into a tin. They are then put into a tin and sold to people to cook either in the microwave or on the top of the cooker, (hobs). Beans are then ate and are made into very smelly gas!!!
NO! It's already concentrated. Just go to your nearest shop and buy them. If you want to try it, go ahead. :P
Yes you can, but remember butter will get hotter faster and burn easier than oil.
If you're wanting a quick way to do this, it's very simple: Open a can of baked beans and pour into a pot. Chop four hot dogs each into about 10 pieces each. Drop the and mix the hot dog pieces into the beans and turn on the burner. Mix frequently and cook on medium temperature until boiling occurs.… Turn burner off and let sit for 3 minutes.

Yes. Corn oil is slightly stronger in flavor however not too noticeable. You will get the same results.
instead of a cup of oil in a cake, you can substitute a cup of applesauce. you can hardly taste any difference, but it is a lot healthier for you.. You can use a cup of butter instead of the oil too.
Yes it will work the same in most recipes. The only problem is thatolive oil has more taste than canola oil, and the taste might beobjectionable in some recipes.
I'm not sure what kind of cooking oil you have but most are interchangeable for baking. You just want to make sure you are using a corn or vegetable oil. When you get into olive or grapeseed oils the flavor is more pronounced and they should not be used.
Dried fruits and dried beans swell when cooked in water because they reabsorb some of the water that was lost during the drying process.
Dried fruits and vegetables swell during cooking because they take in moisture from the cooking medium, sauce or soup and so on.
I suppose it would depend on what you are baking. I have used coconut oil to replace butter in my gluten free pineapple up-side down cake. I have not yet tried to use it for other baking, but it works beautifully in the cake recipe.
Yes, peanut oil is a type of cooking oil. In fact in most cases peanut oil is the preferred type of cooking oil. It is generally considered healthier than most alternatives. It also has a much higher smoke point allowing for cooking in higher temperatures. Source- Division Manager for cooking oil f…iltration. www.oil-max.com ( Full Answer )
Haricot beans The same bean in the US is commonly called a White Navy Bean
Dried beans are soaked overnight in preparation for cooking explain the process affecting the beans what will happen to the dried beans?
The beans absorb water while they soak overnight, so it will cut down the cooking time because, not only does the bean need to be hot, but it also must absorb enough water to be soft all the way through.
Here is a simple substitute for buttermilk that I have personally used myself: - 1 tbsp lemon juice or vinegar - 1 cup minus 1tbsp whole or 2% milk(room temperature) In a liquid measuring cup, place 1tbsp of lemon juice or vinegar. Poor in milk until it hits 1cup(250 ml). Let the mixture sta…nd for about 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, mix the two ingredients well and use as buttermilk in your selected recipe. ( Full Answer )
Grapeseed oil is a brilliant oil to use for most purposes. Not sure about deep frying, as this would possibly destroy the goodqualities of this fine oil in particular. I have used this oil in baking for many years with only goodresults to show.
Baking powder can be substituted for baking soda because they both acts as a from of leavening agent that helps the goods to rise.
I say yes, absolutely. many many recipes you can > But there are exceptions ,like pie crust.
No. In many baking recipes, a combination of butter and sugar provides a solid base. Once the batter is baked, the butter melts over time and is spread evenly throughout the goods. Using melted butter or liquid oils will weigh down your batter and cause the bottoms of your goods to be greasy and/or …burnt. They also will not rise as well (in the case of yeast-less baking) without real butter. If you must substitute the butter with something, Crisco or other solid vegetable oils can work. You'll get a different flavor, though, and it is not advisable. ( Full Answer )
Yes, to some extent. The taste of olive oil will be noticeable in the final product, so olive oil can only be used in products where that taste will be acceptable. Olive oil also has a lower smoke point than other oils, so it is not appropriate for frying at high temperatures.
You can use lots of different things as an alternative. You could try dried beans, pulses, lentils, rice, or any similar thing like that.
I have used applesauce to replace the oil in cake recipes. It lowers the fat content in the recipe. Use the same amount of applesauce as you would oil.
Boil them in water, then when they have become soft enough to your liking, strain them!
How the heck am i suppose to know? I'm in my foods class right now at South Central high school and i have to use these netbooks for a worksheet, boring right yeah i know but we get to cook every Friday and sometimes if the meal takes 2 days, we begin on thursday or the day before! Thats why i typed… it in, right? YEAH!! ahaha jkjk the only way to measure dried beans is that you have to use pounds and ounces, but if you need a cup then measure with dry measures not the "pyrx" or liquid measuring cups. Believe it or not they are different! ( Full Answer )
"Cooking oil" is actually a broad term for purified fat derived from plants which is normally liquid at room temperature. "Vegetable oil," when used to label a cooking oil product may refer to a specific oil like rapeseed oil or to a blend of different oils. Not all vegetable oils are edible - some …are useful only as fuel oils. Not all cooking oils are vegetable oils - for example there are several nut oils and oils from gourds and melons that can be used in cooking. The non-vegetable cooking oils are seldom used in baking, so for the purposes of baking, the terms cooking oil and vegetable oil are pretty much interchangeable. Any recipe that calls for one can use the other interchangeably with the caveat that some oils are lower fat than others and some of them are more tolerant to heat than others. Olive oil can be substituted for cooking oil, but it changes the flavor a little bit. ( Full Answer )
No, oil is liquid, shortening should be solid. Margarine or butter can be used as shortening.
You don't cook baked beans in the oven you cook them over a stove/gas hob.
Boston Baked Beans Sort and soak one pound of beans overnight. Drain and rinse the beans. In an oven proof covered pot, cut up into half inch cubes 1/2 pound of salt pork. chop one onion and add that to the pot, add the beans to the pot, add enough water to cover the beans plus 1 inch. add 2 table…spoons dry mustard and one cup molasses. DO NOT add salt, this will make the beans tough. Cover the pot. Put the pot of beans in the oven and bake at 350F (190C) for 6 to 8 hours until they are soft. Stir the beans once every hour, to keep them mixed and to check their doneness. Add a little water if needed to just keep the beans covered. Baked beans are traditionally baked in a clay pot made just for baking beans, and eaten with brown bread. ( Full Answer )
Yes - some recipes require oil rather than butter or margarine. For most cakes you should use a plain tasting salad oil like sunflower or safflower oil. Occassionally you may encounter an Italian or Mediterranean recipe that requires olive oil. Of course the oil used must be fresh - not rancid, or l…eft-over oil from your deep-fryer. You can substitute butter with oil in a recipe. If the recipe is written with the ingredients measured by volume then use the same volume of oil as butter; if it is wrtiten using weights, then weigh out the same weight of oil. Because oil is liquid you may have to adjust the liquid content of the recipe in order to get the correct consistency of mix. You can add a little extra flour, add an extra egg, or add the oil by degrees until the mixture reaches a consistency that looks 'right'. Cakes made with oil tend to remain moist and keep fresh longer than those made with butter. ( Full Answer )
Oil can be substituted with somethingto keep it moist. This can be something like banana, potato, oreggs.
Yes, you can substitute any cooking oil in baking, as long as it isn't flavored.
