Can you use butter in place of vegetable oil in cooking not baking?
Yes you can, but remember butter will get hotter faster and burn easier than oil.

Yes, because olive oil is gay and has a distinctive taste like apenis, and it will leave that on your food.
Absolutely. Use the same amount, I actually recommend extra virgin olive oil, but if vegetable oil is all you have, by all means. There are a lot of naysayers on the internet …against this, but it is perfectly fine, think bout all the cakes and brownies that use oil and not butter. A lipid is a lipid, and oil and butter both contain enough to get the job done, plus if you use the olive oil its much more healthy (not counting the rest of the cookie). Some people worry because butter and margarine contain water, and oils are waterless, but the effect is not profound in my experience. I think that cookies turn out much better with an oil than a solid like butter or margarine. The batter may look strange to you, very oily, but mix it up good and chill it in the fridge for 5 - 10 minutes and scoop it out. "Oil" cookies stay tight and don't tend to spread out much, so give them a little squish down if you like a thin wide cookie, but you should definitely try them out just the way they drop, a nice tall cookie is great.
The best substitues would be other form of oils, like canola oil, for example.
Yes, you can but only for cakes that require the use of oil. If you use it for other cakes requiring butter it won't have the same flavour.
I'm not sure what kind of cooking oil you have but most are interchangeable for baking. You just want to make sure you are using a corn or vegetable oil. When you get into o…live or grapeseed oils the flavor is more pronounced and they should not be used.
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 h…as 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).)
Yes, it is a heart healthy oil. Any oil is going to produce the same product. Flavor may change a very little bit with some olive oils, but nothing you will probably notice.
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 g…oods. 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.
yes they are in reality about the same thing olive oil just brings out more flavor
yes-- you could also use canola oil (but butter is good too) :)
Canola oil is just a little healthier, but any oil will work in baking.

Yes, if you mean for greasing the pan it works about the same

Almost all pancake recipes use oil rather than butter In thebatter. Margarines and butter-substitute spreads are mainlyvegetable oil. However, most oils do not have the consis…tency or flavor to be acceptable toppings for pancakes, even though once a spread has melted,the appearance would be the same.
It is a healthy substitute that accomplishes the same things asbutter without the large amounts of excess fat, and it eliminatesthe need for dairy products. It also apparently… can fuel cars now.So that's a thing. Just pour it right on in there.
