Yes, you can substitute butter for vegetable oil in a cake mix. If you use butter, don't use the entire amount of liquid which is called for. You can just kind of guess at how… much liquid to remove, or you can carefully calculate the number of liquid ounces of butter that you've added, compare that to the number of ounces of oil which were called for, and then subtract that number of ounces of liquid (milk or water) from the other liquids which the recipe calls for. I disagree with the above. Butter actually has more solids than oil, so you would need *more* liquid, not less. Easiest, I think, just to microwave or otherwise melt the butter, then measure it. You can pretty much substitute the liquid measure of butter for the amount of oil called for by the recipe. This works pretty well but I find that I sometimes need to add even a bit more butter than oil (in liquid form).
No but you can make American muffens with vegetable oil
Applesauce or maynonnaise. Applesauce or maynonnaise
It's fine to sub butter for oil, the only difference is the density of the cake.
Yes, but use plain olive oil not extra virgin so the flavor is milder.
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 butte…r instead of the oil too.
You can substitute with apple sauce or pureed fruit.
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 h…as 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).)
applesauce, applebutter, prunebutter, and pumpkin.

actually applesauce is the best, no joke
I have used applesauce to replace the oil in cake recipes. It lowers the fat content in the recipe. Use the same amount of applesauce as you would oil.

um no you definitely cant. the oil is there to help the cake get more moist. the shortening will make it super dense and that's not good in a cake. also, i wont cook properly.… i wouldn't if i were you.
