    Carrot Cake - Fruited Carrot Loaf or Christmas Muffins Instead of vegetable oil could I use butter or half oil half butter?

    Generally you should substitute a liquid fat with another liquid fat, and a solid fat with another solid fat. Butter works differently in baked goods than does vegetable oil, see

    I substitute one for the other all the time when we are talking about small quantities, like a couple of tbl, but this recipe call for 3/4 cup.

    My own guess is that it would work. Butter has 80% fat compared to oil's 100%, but I don't think that's a bad thing. Mother always reduced the fat in "American" recipes by half, as she found all of them too rich, and the recipes worked out.

    So, the technical rule is no, but I think it might work. If you do make the subsitution, mention that in your review as well as how well it worked.

    You could also substitute some unsweetened applesauce for half of the fat.
