How much butter is equal to 1 cup of shortening?

Vegetable shortening (such as Crisco) contains no water, while butter does, so it takes slightly more butter to accomplish the job: for every one cup of shortening, you will need to use 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of butter.

What can I substitute for melted butter?

For example, if your recipe calls for 1 cup of butter, replace that with 1 cup of margarine or shortening. Mix into your muffin batter in the same manner you would the butter. If your recipe calls for melted butter, you may substitute equal amounts of oil, instead.
