No you cant
If the recipe calls for shortening do not substitute for oil.
Depending on the recipe, you could possibly use lard, butter, bacon grease, or vegetable oil instead of shortening.
No, you can't. But if a recipe calls for vegetable oil, you can substitute it for Canola Oil.
Melt it and let it cool. The cake will be denser with shortening than with oil.
It depends on the recipe. Shortening becomes solid at room temperature while vegetable oil does not. So vegetable oil may be substituted for melted shortening only in recipes that do not depend on shortening becoming solid for texture when cooled.
Depends on the recipe, you couldn't use oil for pie crust.
if a peanut butter recipe call for vegetable oil 1/3 cup and I only have 1/4 cup can I melt crisco shortening and add to the vegetable oil.
Technically, butter is a form of shortening, because shortening means any form of fat or oil. (Lard, suet, butter, margarine, Crisco).Generally, if a modern recipe calls for shortening it is referring to a vegetable shortening such as Crisco. Older recipes may be referring to any solid shortening.
You can safely substitute liquid oil for solid shortening in baking ONLY if the recipe calls for the shortening to be melted first. You can substitute butter or margarine for shortening ( 1 cup + 2 Tbsp for each cup of shortening). You can also substitute 1/2 cup applesauce or prune puree for each cup of shortening.
There is a problem with substituting oil for shortening. You will have to adjust all the liquids in the recipe. In most cases I wouldn't suggest it.
Butter, vegetable oil, lactose-free butter / vegan butter, Crisco, and / or vegetable shortening, depending on the recipe.
Yes, as long as the recipe calls for oil and not shortening. If shortening is used, reduce the other liquid, probably milk by a little bit.
No, vegetable oil is a liquid and vegetable shortening is a solid, almost like butter.
You can, but the result might not be satisfactory if you use a recipe that calls for butter or shortening. There are pastry recipes specifically formulated for using oil in place of butter. See link below.
solid vegetable oil is shortening, such as Crisco.
vegetable oil would be unsaturated and butter saturatedd, idk about shortening
Use 2/3 or 3/4 cup vegetable oil (I use canola) for each cup of shortening or butter.
Yes, just substitute one cup for one cup and so on.
No because the cookie will just get to moist.
You can not eat vegetable shortening in cake......it is edible...but you can not use it in cake..you can use vegetable oil if you like....:)

Not usually. Standard vegetable oil can often be used.
No, but you can substitute pizza for a vegetable.
Butter or lard can be used instead of shortening in cakes. Some types of neutral-tasting oils, such as vegetable oil or canola oil, can be used in many cake recipes.
Vegetable oil is unsaturated. Butter is saturated. Im not sure about shortening.
