You can use melted butter or vegetable oil if you want to substitute for regular oil.
Yes you can, but butter tastes way better and butter makes it taste more like cake.
Margarine is probably the best option, but vegetable oil and olive oil could also be used.
yes you can
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.
It depends on the oil. Usually, it is margarine that is used. The important thing is to follow a recipe.
Some sponge cake recipes have no oil or butter. They have large amounts of sugar and egg.
No, your cake will have a strange texture. You can substitute mayo or apple sauce for oil though. You could even use butter, but I am guessing you are trying to get a low fat recipe?
If you are substituting oil for butter in baking use about the same volume.
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.
Might be too heavy, leading to soggy or a dense textured cake. You can substitute applesauce-the amount is half of what the recipe calls for.
It's fine to sub butter for oil, the only difference is the density of the cake.
applesauce - really! ** You can also use mayonaise. ** You can also substitute the Oil with Sour Cream
Yes, but it will change the taste slightly.
vegetable oil will work well. it has the same taste and texture
Not really. They have different properties and cook differently. You can sometimes use olive oil to saute something in place of butter, but if the recipe calls for butter, use butter. Sometimes you can substitute vegetable oil or canola oil, but not olive oil.
yes but you have to use less butter than the normal amount of oil
You can substitute applesauce for oil in many cake and muffin recipes.
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.
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.
i use applesauce in place of oil,cup for cup...comes out a more moist cake
