I don't even put the oil in anymore, still comes out fine.But can use an equal amount of butter if you like

You can use any 'fat', so butter or marg would work just as well (according to my break maker's manual, anyway)

Go without-not needed

I have used garlic margarine before, and added a chopped onion.

I like oil in my bread. It helps make the bread a softer/fluffy and assists in its keeping qualities. It doesn't really matter if you are going to eat the bread asap but ours keeps fresh for up to 5 days only if I use the oil. Note: this may be different with machine made breads. I have only ever made mine by hand and I've only ever used wild yeast, rather than commercial yeast.

A little mashed potato works wonders for keeping bread soft for a couple of days but in our house it is gone in a flash when the kids are home at Christmas.

I use lecithin instead of oil in my "savoury" bread as it seems to keep better but for fruit bread I use butter anyway

We are not big bread eaters in this household.
