Unrefined Oils in Baking

April 29, 2011 - 1:33pm -- honeymustard

Hi all!

Going to make a loaf tonight (not sure what, I've just been doing a lot of experimenting lately), and I was thinking of using some unrefined oil I picked up downtown.

I've been reading about the apparent health benefits of unrefined oil over refined oil, and I was wondering if anyone has baked with it? I have unrefined sunflower oil.

I only ask because I know unrefined oil cannot withstand high temperatures that come with frying and sauteeing; maybe they wouldn't be good for baking then?
