I normally use the sticks of butter for cooking/baking.. and margarine (I can't believe it's not butter, to be exact!) for bread,toast, etc...

I'm just out of butter, so i'll have to use my margarine.

Correct me someone if I'm wrong but it's mostly water and you can't bake well with it.

Just remember that baking is about chemistry so make sure your measurements are right and you'll do fine!

I've never used "I can't believe it's not butter" so I have no idea. I know that you can substitute parkay or blue bonnet margarine for baking instead of butter in most recipes.

yeah as far as I know reg. stick margarine is ok but the other stuff is bad news.
It will be on the box (if its not) or you can check online if its ok for baking.

Have you found a way to fix that?
I've tried extra salt, the very best vanillas, half and half (butter / butter crisco) but I can't shake the bland!
BUTTER ROCKS!
As I said before, I don't bake. Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip cookies are the extent of my baking. I hate measuring, but to bake you have to.
