Can I replace vegetable oil with butter in a cake recipe?

Oftentimes, butter is replaced by oil in a recipe because it produces a moister cake. A dry cake is caused by the sugar absorbing much of the moisture; fats suspend the molecules, and as oils are liquid, they prevent more moisture from being absorbed and also make a moister cake. It is possible to substitute butter for oil, but I would not recommend it. If the problem with the oil is the taste, a milder oil such as canola or safflower can be used.
