Why Use Turmeric Powder in Baking?
Turmeric spice is a versatile yellow spice that offers distinct woody, earthy, natural flavours to your cooking. Whilst turmeric is widely used in savoury dishes, it can also be used in baking to add unique depths of flavour to your favourite baked goods. Turmeric’s warm and earthy flavour is perfect for baked goods like turmeric tea cakes and turmeric cookies. What’s more, they also adds a fun, bright, yellow-orange colour to your baked goods, making them more visually appealing than ever before
Aside from flavours and colours, turmeric offers us many health benefits too, including being a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.
How to Incorporate Turmeric Powder in Baked Goods
When baking with turmeric powder, it's essential to use the right amount to avoid overpowering the dish's other flavours. A general rule of thumb is to use one teaspoon of turmeric powder for every cup of flour in your recipe. Pairing turmeric with other spices like cinnamon, ginger, or cardamom can also enhance its flavour. Turmeric's bright yellow-orange colour can also affect the texture of your baked goods. It can make them denser or even alter the baking time. However, by experimenting with small amounts at first and making adjustments, you can ensure the perfect texture and taste.
