How much vegetable oil would you substitute for a recipe that calls for 2 tablespoons of shortening?
Answer . I would think the same amount. But, you won't get the same results. \n. \nShortening is a saturated fat like lard or butter. Oil is an unsaturated fat. You won't get at all the same results. I would sub butter. If you are veg and you dont want to use animal fat but you are trying to avo…id the trans fats in solid vegetable shortening, use palm oil or coconut. These are naturally solid at room temperature. (MORE)
Any cooking oils can be used in place of Canola oil, without any noticeable difference.
Yes, you can substitute olive oil for vegetable oil, but not for all dishes. Olive oil has a strong taste. You would probably not want to use olive oil in most Indian cooking and definitely not in baking. Make sure that the taste of olive oil is compatible with your other ingredients.
Olive Oil Brawl . Yes, you absolutely can -- it will taste the same. . Actually, you can NOT substitute olive oil; they'll taste TERRIBLE. Trust me, I've tried it :( .
I personally substitute vegetable oil with canola oil. It is low in saturated fat and healthier for you. Some canola oils also contain omega 3, which many doctors recommend to their patients. *** Any other oil, corn, canola , olive , can be used as a substitute.( Even melted margarine or butter wi…th limits) . Its mostly the flavor the fat brings to the dish or recipe that will be the difference. I'm over simplifying , but with out more info as to what you are preparing .. that's about it. Another good substitute for vegetable oil is apple sauce. It is healthier, but it does surprisingly taste very good and as it would with the oil. We didn't have any types of oil, and I found that apple sauce answer on yahoo answers. Cool! (: Enjoy... (MORE)
Here's how: . Butter is 80% fat, oil is 100% To keep amount of fat the same, use 4/5 the amount of butter vs. oil. Use ounces instead of cups.If you get an odd number of ounces, use tablespoons: 2 TBS = 1 oz. Multiply the amount of oil x4, then divide that number by 5 and you have your oil! . T…hen use 5/4 of the amount of liquid because you have lost the liquid that butter has in it. Multiply the milk or whatever liquid x 5, then divide that number by 4. The solid issue You can use Crisco non- trans fat version NOT regular Crisco if you are using oil instead of butter for health reasons. ( It is saturated fat but you will avoid partially hydrogenated oil, which is the worst). Coconut oil would work (but you'll have a coconut flavor) . Original answer:No! Never do that! Butter has different properties. For one, it's a solid. I don't know the exact reason, but I'm in culinary school, and one time, I ask that, and got a huge lecture on how stupid my question was . (Not stupid. You can. Just don't tell your instructors!!) ; ) (MORE)
Yes indeed. The taste may be a little more nutty though but in pancakes and waffles its fine.
Yes canola oil is a type of cooking oil, there is a slight taste difference but your not likely to notice that in the final product.
To replace one cup of margarine one may use 1 cup shortening plus 1/2 teaspoon salt OR 1 cup butter OR 7/8 cup vegetable oil plus 1/2 teaspoon salt OR 7/8 cup lard plus 1/2 teaspoon salt.
Not really. Corn syrup is a sweetner, and it is produced after corn oil is removed from the corn. Corn or vegetable oil is actually oil, and it is different from sugars.
No, you can't. But if a recipe calls for vegetable oil, you can substitute it for Canola Oil.
applesauce - really!. You can also use mayonaise.. You can also substitute the Oil with Sour Cream
you can use olive oil as a substitute or sunflower oil. Thanks, big help I was trying to make horse treats and i always am missing something!
\nYes. You substitute applesauce for vegetable oil in equal parts. One cup of vegetable oil equals one cup of of applesauce.
It depends on what the oil was for. If it is a recipe, especially for baking, you can use butter as substitute for oil. It is not recommended to substitute butter to fry something because it tends to burn in a hot pan, you should use oil to fry. Yes is can! Just don't use as much oil as butter. B…utter is thicker than oil so don't make it too sloppy. (MORE)
Only in meat or vegetable recipes. You wouldn't use it to fry eggs or make pastry.
Yes. It should be melted and cooled to lukewarm before adding to other ingredients. However, one should consider that shortening is partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, which is not a healthy substitute for oil.
not for creaming sugar or for making a laminated dough. In general vegetable shortenings aren't that healthy and should be replaced by butter.
YES! For cakes and breads there shouldn't be a problem. You can't really use oil in most cookies. You would probably want to reduce other liquids just a little bit depending on the recipe.
\nYes you can, but butter tastes way better and butter makes it taste more like cake.
Your best guess is to subsiitute in another form of an oil, like canola oil or corn oil, for example.
I have substituted olive oil (evoo) for vegetable oil and never had a problem. Not sure if you should but I have with no problem. I use the same amount as I would with vegetable oil.
Yes. Your cornbread will probably taste better if you don't use olive oil. Olive oil is probably too fragrant and strong to put in a cornbread.
Olive oil will burn at low;er temperature than vegetable oil, andit will alter the flavor, but it would work in a pinch. YA GURL AK WAS HERE :) ALSO.. OLIVE OIL IS GROSS.
You can try canola oil, instead of vegetable oil. That would probably be your best bet.
You can use melted butter or vegetable oil if you want to substitute for regular oil.
No, this would taste terrible, but you can substitute margarine for butter. Sorry, I have to disagree. Margarine tastes nasty to me, even a little bit in a recipe. It would depend on the recipe if you could use butter in place of oil. Butter and oil are equivalent fats and are pretty much interch…angeable in recipes; margarine and spread are not interchangeable with butter or oil in recipes because they are not equivalent fats. A tablespoon of oil is the same amount of fat as a tablespoon of butter but a tablespoon of margarine is fat, water, and some strange, miscellaneous ingredients. When a recipe calls for a small amount of oil, it is usually to help retain moisture. When a recipe call for a larger amount of oil, it is to make the end product very moist and soft. I have been know to substitute applesauce for oil when the recipe calls for a quantity, like a quarter cup or more. I don't like the taste of a quantity of oil in a recipe either and applesauce adds the moisture without the fat. (MORE)
instead of a cup of oil in a cake, you can substitute a cup of applesauce. you can hardly taste any difference, but it is a lot healthier for you.. You can use a cup of butter instead of the oil too.
Any neutral-tasting oil can be substituted; canola oil, soybean oil, corn oil, etc. If you want a richer taste (and more saturated fat), you can try clarified butter (ghee), depending on the dish.
yes it can be substituted, you might want to use a little LESS of the olive oil, as it is heavier and has a stronger taste.
no, that will not work To elaborate on the above, the simplest leavened (raised) bread consists of nothing more than flour, water and yeast, and has no requirement of oil. However, oil or melted butter or margarine is usually added along with a small amount of sugar and a bit of salt to make a simp…le, and somewhat tastier bread. Also, milk is used in place of some or all of the water, adding a bit more nutrition. There are hundreds of recipes for bread, so the best thing to do is to try a substitution for an ingredient (normally melted butter or margarine in place of oil) and if it works, great! If it does not, then you have simply invented a new bread. (MORE)
In cakes: Increase the amount called for by 15% and use vegetable shortening or non-dairy margarine.
I have often interchanged 'fats' when baking depending on what I had on hand. Sometimes it slightly changed the texture of the final product, but sometimes it didn't. Butter has a higher level of saturated fat so vegetable oil would be lighter , but I've never had a problem by substituting one for …the other. I'm not sure it's necessary, but when I've made this substitution I've always melted the butter before measuring. (Be sure to let it cool slightly before adding to batter so that it doesn't scramble the egg(s).) (MORE)
Grapeseed oil is a brilliant oil to use for most purposes. Not sure about deep frying, as this would possibly destroy the goodqualities of this fine oil in particular. I have used this oil in baking for many years with only goodresults to show.
I say yes, absolutely. many many recipes you can > But there are exceptions ,like pie crust.
No. In many baking recipes, a combination of butter and sugar provides a solid base. Once the batter is baked, the butter melts over time and is spread evenly throughout the goods. Using melted butter or liquid oils will weigh down your batter and cause the bottoms of your goods to be greasy and/or …burnt. They also will not rise as well (in the case of yeast-less baking) without real butter. If you must substitute the butter with something, Crisco or other solid vegetable oils can work. You'll get a different flavor, though, and it is not advisable. (MORE)
Yes, to some extent. The taste of olive oil will be noticeable in the final product, so olive oil can only be used in products where that taste will be acceptable. Olive oil also has a lower smoke point than other oils, so it is not appropriate for frying at high temperatures.
Will the olive oil flavor be noticed in the cupcake? In a white or yellow cake it might. If there is any other flavor in the cake, probably not.
A variety of alternate ingredients that can be used instead of oil or butter in the preparation of foods. Substitute products exist with reduced fat and no fat and in different forms such as spreadable and liquid. Fruit purees or applesauce can be used as oil substitutes for baking purposes. Add ski…m milk to applesauce or fruit-based purees for liquid cooking oil substitutes. Butter buds mixed to form a liquid, corn syrup, and cooking sprays may also be used as good oil substitutions. Non-sticking cooking pans can be used in order to reduce or eliminate oil required for cooking. (MORE)
Yes, you can substitute any oil for another oil however it does change the taste a little of what ever you are making.
"Cooking oil" is actually a broad term for purified fat derived from plants which is normally liquid at room temperature. "Vegetable oil," when used to label a cooking oil product may refer to a specific oil like rapeseed oil or to a blend of different oils. Not all vegetable oils are edible - some …are useful only as fuel oils. Not all cooking oils are vegetable oils - for example there are several nut oils and oils from gourds and melons that can be used in cooking. The non-vegetable cooking oils are seldom used in baking, so for the purposes of baking, the terms cooking oil and vegetable oil are pretty much interchangeable. Any recipe that calls for one can use the other interchangeably with the caveat that some oils are lower fat than others and some of them are more tolerant to heat than others. Olive oil can be substituted for cooking oil, but it changes the flavor a little bit. (MORE)
I'm no expert, but syrup and oil and two very different ingredients in nature, so you probably couldn't substitute them for each other without some 'interesting' outcomes... stick to the vegetable oils; canola, olive etc.
No, oil is liquid, shortening should be solid. Margarine or butter can be used as shortening.
Vinegar is an acetic acid solution in http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_are_the_ingredients_of_vinegar# (5-9 %).

depends what you want it to turn out like. you can put anything in anything but no saying it would taste good. hope i helped :)
Yes, the two are interchangeable. However, oil usually results in a moister texture to the finished cake.
Yes, you can melt shortening and use in a cake recipe. It will change the texture and possibly add heaviness to the cake, but it will still be good.
Oil can be substituted with somethingto keep it moist. This can be something like banana, potato, oreggs.
Yes, you can substitute any cooking oil in baking, as long as it isn't flavored.
It depends on the recipe. If the recipe requires a large proportion of vegetable oil and you're hoping to substitute it with coconut oil it is not a good idea since coconut oil has a distinctive taste which will overpower the whole dish. Generally, it is a good idea to substitute vegetable oil with …something like canola oil since it has no taste rather than coconut oil. (MORE)
