Can you substitute olive oil for vegetable oil when baking a cake?

We've found you can substitute olive oil for other oils on a one-for-one basis. If a recipe, say, calls for half a cup of vegetable oil, use the same amount of extra virgin olive oil. We've done this with carrot cake, pound cake, and chocolate cake.

Can you use olive oil instead of vegetable oil in a cake mix?

Great question. You can definitely substitute olive oil for vegetable oil in our Supermoist cake mixes. Our kitchens would recommend using a light olive oil rather than an extra virgin, as the extra virgin will have some effect on taste. Thank you for reaching out.
