Copha, Trex Substitute

In a recipe I want to try it requires Copha, which Google tells me is the same as Trex, a (solid) Vegetable Shortening (fat). Is there any equivalent in Turkey?

Re: Copha, Trex Substitute

You can buy beef kıdney fat from the butchers but you have to render ıt down ınto lard--ask HIJO about ıt he,s a chef.The cheaper margerınes here ın turkey are very lıke lard and are about 90krus a pack from BIM and theyre ın a yellow wrapper.Ive used these ınstead of suet for dumplıngs and they are ok but must be very chılled and then grated.

Re: Copha, Trex Substitute

I could perhaps try the margarine idea. The recipe is for a cake mix, so I don´t think in this case the beef fat will be right for it. Thanks

Re: Copha, Trex Substitute

bitkisel is the word to look for in the ingredients on the margarin packet and is more or less the same as trex..
bitkisel katı yağ hard vegetable oil
most people here use sivi yağ liquid oil instead of butter for cakes

Re: Copha, Trex Substitute

Thanks for that. The recipe is very specific, for some reason; it does irritate when they ask for ingredients like this. It is an Australian recipe, but they should modify it if they are going to sell worldwide; American recipes are always doing the same thing.

Re: Copha, Trex Substitute

I have both lard and Trex in my fridge I won't be smiling when its all gone!!!!

I certainly wouldn't fancy using liquid oil in my cakes, always butter.

No, it is for the filling in a cake/slice (cake base, filling, choc top).

Thanks anyway.
