When baking can you substitute vegetable oil for cooking oil?
"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.

For those who wish to reduce the fat content of the finished product, replacing oil with applesauce will cut calories and fat without adversely affecting the texture.. If you are substituting applesauce for shortening, you use half the amount of applesauce. So, 1/2 cup shortening is replaced with 1…/4 cup applesauce. (MORE)
No, butter has a much lower smoking point than cooking oil. Butter will burn and taste bad if used over too high a heat.
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.
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)
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.
In baking, you can substitute apple sauce for most of the oil. For sauteing, you can use butter, but it may burn. For frying you have to use oil
applesauce - really!. You can also use mayonaise.. You can also substitute the Oil with Sour Cream
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)
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.
Your best guess is to subsiitute in another form of an oil, like canola oil or corn oil, for example.
If you use it for deep frying, you can use it as many times as you like.
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.
Due to different molecular structures among other things, they cannot. Beans are not often used in baking.
NO! It's already concentrated. Just go to your nearest shop and buy them. If you want to try it, go ahead. :P
Yes you can, but remember butter will get hotter faster and burn easier than oil.
Yes. Corn oil is slightly stronger in flavor however not too noticeable. You will get the same results.
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.
A qualified YES, if you are cooking vegetables, meat etc - things that the taste of olive oil won't interfere with. However, in sweets - cakes etc. the taste of the olive oil is too overpowering, so I wouldn't recommend it.
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.
I'm not sure what kind of cooking oil you have but most are interchangeable for baking. You just want to make sure you are using a corn or vegetable oil. When you get into olive or grapeseed oils the flavor is more pronounced and they should not be used.
I suppose it would depend on what you are baking. I have used coconut oil to replace butter in my gluten free pineapple up-side down cake. I have not yet tried to use it for other baking, but it works beautifully in the cake recipe.
Yes, peanut oil is a type of cooking oil. In fact in most cases peanut oil is the preferred type of cooking oil. It is generally considered healthier than most alternatives. It also has a much higher smoke point allowing for cooking in higher temperatures. Source- Division Manager for cooking oil f…iltration. www.oil-max.com (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.
Yes, applesauce is a healthy substitute for oil whenever you are baking. Just be sure to use an unsweetened applesauce.
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.
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.
Not chemically. Soy sauce can be substituted for salt in many recipes, but it does not contain the fats of butter or oil, which are often necessary for building textures or other chemical changes in the recipe.
Yes, you can reuse cooked vegetable oil. Me and my parents if reuse our vegetable oil if there isn't any pieces of food left from what ever it is we cooked.
yes, it has a slight different taste that cooked in olive oil but wont affect your chicken
No, oil is liquid, shortening should be solid. Margarine or butter can be used as shortening.

It's not a great substitution for stir fries, primarily because olive oil has a lower smoking point than vegetable oil, meaning it will begin smoking a lot before the pan would be as hot as you'd require it to be for a stir fry. The second reason is that olive oil has a distinctive taste which is pr…evalent in Mediterranean food, but never in Asian food. (MORE)
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 :)
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)
