The UK’s leading home baking brand Dr. Oetker is launching its latest innovative new product aimed at making baking more convenient; Ready Zest.

Lemon Ready Zest (rrp £1.00) comes in a handy sachet and contains a pre-grated zest from real lemons, the first product of its kind on the market.

Perfect for creating delicious lemon sponges, cupcakes and biscuits, the product can simply be added to the recipe in the place of freshly grated lemon zest, without any mess or waste.

The product joins Dr. Oetker’s range of convenient baking products including Flavour Drizzles, Easy Ice, Easy Choc and Easy Fill Cake Centres, all of which aim to help make baking even simpler for busy consumers or even easier for novice bakers.

Jan McKee, Executive Head of Marketing at Dr. Oetker UK, said: “Lemon Drizzle cake is a classic British recipe and will always be popular in home baking. With a long shelf life, Ready Zest is a store cupboard essential for impromptu bakes and we expect this to be a key item on a home baker’s shopping list.”
