Butter to oil conversion

Hiya, the recipe I want to use calls for 125g of butter, is this the same as 125ml of canola oil?Thanks, Peter.

Hi Peter, what is your recipe for?

From this MB I have kept the following which is advice for muffin making.As yet I have not personally used the substitution and I am not sure whether it would work successfully for e.g. cake and/or biscuit making.....

"make all my muffins with oil instead of butter now.My rule is for every 50g butter use 40ml oil. I use rice bran or canola oil now as it is apparently healthier but I guess you could use olive.

Thanks Sam, it's for Nigella Lawsons Rhubarb Cornmeal cake. I shouldn't really eat butter, or cheese, (of which I've just had two sandwiches).
