What can you substitute for butter in a recipe?

Which Butter Substitute Should I Use?
  1. Applesauce: You can replace butter in baking recipes with unsweetened applesauce by using half of the amount of applesauce as the amount of butter called for in the recipe.
  2. Vegetable Oil: You can substitute 3/4 cup of vegetable oil for every 1 cup of butter called for.

Likewise, people ask, how much oil do you substitute for butter?

(Stick with butter or shortening for pie crusts). Try substituting one-fourth or half the butter with oil. And don't substitute the same amount: try two thirds to three fourths as much oil. In other words, to replace 4 tablespoons of butter, experiment with a scant 3 tablespoons of oil.

Can you replace butter with vegetable oil?

For every 1/4 cup butter, use 4 tablespoons vegetable oil or 3 tablespoons olive oil. Oil provides moist, delicious results in these baked goods. Oil doesn't work as well in recipes such as cookies and cakes, which call for the butter to be creamed or aerated with sugar and eggs first.

Can we use oil instead of butter in brownies?

In brownies, both butter and oil will offer a moist, tender texture, but only butter will give the dish the aeration needed for rising brownies well. If you use a cake brownie, butter is a better option because it helps rise the batter. For denser, fudge type brownies, oil is permissable.
