Muffins made with oil, instead of butter...

korbo, Mar 14, 7:05pm
tasted some realy yummy light texture muffins the other day, and the elderly lady, (who just tosses the ingredients in the bowl), said she used oil in them. Has anyone a good recipe, or how do you substitue oil for butter

All of the recipes in Alison and Simon Holst's Book "Healthy Muffins"use oil rather than butter.

Unfortunately ny copy is buried somewher inder a bookcase.

I make all my muffins with oil rather than butter. I use 1/4 cup oil for every 50 grams butter (and probably should add a pinch of salt but I usually don't)

I heard that if you use oil they keep longer. I know this is the case with bread. I either use oil or yoghurt in my muffins
