Sorry if there is already a thread about cakes but I can't scroll through 101 pages...

A colleague has just made her Christmas cake and has used salted butter (in error). I have always used unsalted as this is what my recipes say. Does anyone know whether this really matters?

I don't think it'll cause a huge problem.

FWIW, my mum always used salted in all baking and it always tasted fine smile

It won't matter at all

Thanks, both, she will be hugely relieved.

Put in extra booze - you'll never notice.grin

St Delia says to use unsalted butter but then lists half a tsp of salt in the ingredients.confused
