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).)
