Yes. Use the same amount of melted butter as oil. If you are using a non-stick coated pan, lower the temperature by 25 degrees. Set your timer for 1/2 the time and then monitor every 2-3 minutes to keep from over-browning or burning. The test method for doneness other than visual should be a toothpick that comes out clean when inserted in the center.

See for more info.
