Can you substitute olive oil for vegetable oil when baking a cake?
Yes, but use plain olive oil not extra virgin so the flavor is milder.

Yes, because olive oil is gay and has a distinctive taste like apenis, and it will leave that on your food.
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.
Olive Oil Brawl . Yes, you absolutely can -- it will taste the same. . Actually, you can NOT substitute olive oil; they'll taste TERRIBLE. Trust me, I've tried it :( .
Here's how: . Butter is 80% fat, oil is 100% To keep amount of fat the same, use 4/5 the amount of butter vs. oil. Use ounces instead of cups.If you get an odd number of ounces, use tablespoons: 2 TBS = 1 oz. Multiply the amount of oil x4, then divide that number by 5 and you have your oil! . T…hen use 5/4 of the amount of liquid because you have lost the liquid that butter has in it. Multiply the milk or whatever liquid x 5, then divide that number by 4. The solid issue You can use Crisco non- trans fat version NOT regular Crisco if you are using oil instead of butter for health reasons. ( It is saturated fat but you will avoid partially hydrogenated oil, which is the worst). Coconut oil would work (but you'll have a coconut flavor) . Original answer:No! Never do that! Butter has different properties. For one, it's a solid. I don't know the exact reason, but I'm in culinary school, and one time, I ask that, and got a huge lecture on how stupid my question was . (Not stupid. You can. Just don't tell your instructors!!) ; ) ( Full Answer )
no, it has a different consistency and it isn't the same type of ingredient, in other words it doesn't belong in the same family. Butter is dairy and canola and vegetable oil are not.
Yes indeed. The taste may be a little more nutty though but in pancakes and waffles its fine.
applesauce - really!. You can also use mayonaise.. You can also substitute the Oil with Sour Cream
Yes, many Italian cakes call for olive oil. The best type would be plain olive oil, not extra virgin because it will have a milder taste.
Never heard of that one. A common substitute though is Apple Sauce. Replace apple sauce for the vegetable oil and you will get a much moister cake. The proof is in the taste ... try it, you'll like it.. You can definitely do it however: I'm eating a piece of cake made with it right now!
You could ... but it would taste really weird. Olive oil has a strong flavor (of olives) that does not go well with sweet flavors. Think sphagetti sauce.
I use vegetable oil instead of butter, lard, yoghurt etc. in a lot of recipes and so far the results have been good.
Only in meat or vegetable recipes. You wouldn't use it to fry eggs or make pastry.
Yes, you can substitute butter for vegetable oil in a cake mix. If you use butter, don't use the entire amount of liquid which is called for. You can just kind of guess at how much liquid to remove, or you can carefully calculate the number of liquid ounces of butter that you've added, compare that …to the number of ounces of oil which were called for, and then subtract that number of ounces of liquid (milk or water) from the other liquids which the recipe calls for. I disagree with the above. Butter actually has more solids than oil, so you would need *more* liquid, not less. Easiest, I think, just to microwave or otherwise melt the butter, then measure it. You can pretty much substitute the liquid measure of butter for the amount of oil called for by the recipe. This works pretty well but I find that I sometimes need to add even a bit more butter than oil (in liquid form). ( Full Answer )
Yes, and more often than not olive oil is better for you. A different view: I would not use olive oil in cakes because it does add its taste to the batter.
Yes, but be aware that olive oil has flavors that most vegetable oils don't have. You are likely to have a touch of olive flavor in your pancakes!
Yes; sources on the web suggest 2 tablespoons oil, 2 tablespoons flour, 1/2 tablespoon of shortening, and 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder should substitute. It might taste a bit different, of course...
I have substituted olive oil (evoo) for vegetable oil and never had a problem. Not sure if you should but I have with no problem. I use the same amount as I would with vegetable oil.
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.
It's fine to sub butter for oil, the only difference is the density of the cake.
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.
Yes it will work the same in most recipes. The only problem is thatolive oil has more taste than canola oil, and the taste might beobjectionable in some recipes.
yes it can be substituted, you might want to use a little LESS of the olive oil, as it is heavier and has a stronger taste.
Yes, you could, but it would give it a definitely different taste. Actually, you can substitute unsweetened applesauce for oil amounts in most recipes except cookies, pie crusts or any type of pastry dough.
Yes, as long as the recipe calls for oil and not shortening. Ifshortening is used, reduce the other liquid, probably milk by alittle bit.
You can always do this. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is very expensive. Vegetable Oil is a cheap substitute of lower quality.
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).) ( Full Answer )

The olive oil mayeifjoake a little bit, but it will work as far asbeing the fat in the recipe.
Yes chemically the oil will work great and the recipe will succeed; but the oil might have a taste that is slightly different and the result could taste differently.
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.
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. ( Full Answer )
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.
You can use shortening, butter or margarine, or even mayonnaise orlard in some recipes. Actually, many chocolate cake recipes callfor mayonnaise instead of oil or butter. Just keep in mind thatmargarine has a higher water content than butter, so you may wantto use all butter or half butter/half marg…arine if that's thesubstitution you choose. ( Full Answer )
yes you can but it completely changes and disrupts the taste of the dressing another response: Yes, but you need to consider the flavor of the salad dressing. Olive oil has a distinctive flavor, so if you use a different oil, your salad dressing will be less flavorful. Another response: The… health considerations of olive oil, vs vegetable oil are also to be considered. Olive oil is much healthier than vegetable oil. ( Full Answer )
yes they are in reality about the same thing olive oil just brings out more flavor
For carrot cakes ( I don't know about other cakes), I've used applesauce in the same proportion as needed for vegetable oil, and they came out great.
The flavor of the oil may be noticeable in the cake, but it will still perform like any other oil.
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.
no you cant becauce... well i dont know go ask the guy who makes cooking recipes. and if you still dont know you can... you can... well go away come back tommarrow and i will tell you....................................................................thats a lie. the answer is...I DONT KNOW...… know you have the answerso please let me go to sleep bye!"Â£$%^&*()_= ( Full Answer )
Yes. It may give it a slightly different flavor, but it will certainly work all right.
Omit eggs and oil and use ONLY the same amount of Mayonnaise as oil called for in the cake mix directions.
um no you definitely cant. the oil is there to help the cake get more moist. the shortening will make it super dense and that's not good in a cake. also, i wont cook properly. i wouldn't if i were you.
"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. ( Full Answer )
I have used olive oil to get rid of head lice. Instead of using the typical pesticides, I slathered on some olive oil and let it sit for 20-30 minutes. Then using a fine tooth comb to get rid of the lice and nits. Shampoo the oil out of the hair. It may take a couple of latherings. Hair will be supe…r soft. Repeat the process in a couple of weeks just to make sure the critters are not returning. The oil smothers the lice and makes the nits easy to remove. ( Full Answer )
If the idea of chocolate-covered olives sends you into paroxysms of delight, by all means go ahead and use olive oil. Please label these sinister things, though, so that normal humans know to avoid them. I suggest "sediment of foul evil", though "olive oil brownies" is probably sufficient.
Yes, the two are interchangeable. However, oil usually results in a moister texture to the finished cake.
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.
