Canola Oil Recipes
Cecil Said:can you replace vegtable oil with canola oil in a recipe?
We Answered:John I use canola oil for all my cooking needs
and have had very good results it has a high smoking point for sauteing and it leaves no after taste in baked recipes. The only place I do not use it is in the deep fat fryer, there I like to use peanut oil
I hope I have been of some help to you.
Teresa Said:I need a cookie recipe using canola oil instead of butter..?
We Answered:Creaming the butter and sugar gives the cookies a texture and flavor that you can't get if you use oil.
If you want to use oil, use about the same quantity as you would have used of butter, but increase the flour a little to account for the extra liquid. You should only need to add a few tablespoons extra flour at most, but you'll have to judge by how the cookie dough looks and feels. Don't bother beating the sugar into the oil, just dissolve it in the other liquids (beating it into the eggs instead might be helpful). The cookies that you get will probably come out flatter, and definitely less buttery.

Charles Said:if a recipe asks for canola oil what can i use instead?
We Answered:there is no "Rapeseed" oil. "Rapeseed" oil is canola oil. it comes from the rapeseed plant. Named canola oil because nobody would want to buy an oil called "Rapeseed" oil, and it first came from Canada. if for frying, then you want to concern yourself with smoke points and flavor. your best alternative would be grapeseed oil, and a fair substitute would be vegetable oil. these two would also work for baking.
Penny Said:Can I use Canola Oil (instead of Olive Oil) to pickle eggplant? I've only seen recipes with olive oil.?

Jeanette Said:What is the ratio when substituting canola oil for shortening in recipes?
We Answered:The ratio is one to one, but you might not like the results depending upon what you're making.
For example, it's probably fine to use oil instead of shortening in cakes, but cookies will be flatter and crispier. This is because the oil stays a liquid at all temps but the shortening is solid at room temp.
Bruce Said:Any good Pie crust recipes using butter or vegetable oil instead of shortening?
We Answered:You can substitute exact measurements of butter for other fats, but remeber if it is table butter it already has salt added to it. You can also make a crust with oil, but it is much harder to get a flaky crust with oil.
