Hi everyone!

I have a recipe that calls for 1 tsp. of Strawberry extract. I was unable to find this, but I did find strawberry flavored Lorann Oil. Anyone know how much of the Oil to substitute in the recipe?

When substituting for extract, I use about 1/4 tsp LorAnn flavoring. The LorAnn oils for candy flavoring are even more potent! icon_smile.gif

To my surprise, I found Strawberry Extract at my local grocery store (Kroger) in the baking/spice aisle. It was at the end of the row of all the extracts (Butter, Almond, Vanilla, etc).

Just in case. icon_smile.gif

ucanhazcakes- You're lucky! I've checked 2 different grocery stores and they only had butter, vanilla, almond and rum. My local cake suplly store is where I found the oil.

Lorann also make a natural strawberry extract, I have some in my cupboard as we speak! Much nicer than the oil version:
