cakes/cupcakes

When you're making cake from a box it says add oil but not what kind. Does it really matter? Besides Extra virgin olive oil. I used Conola oil and doesnt taste any differet. What oil do you usually use?
I baked chocolate cupcakes with cocolate frosting. Anyone want any? :)

  • I always thought it said vegetable oil. Canola is fine, too. As long as its not a flavorful oil like olive.

  • vegetable or canola are what they mean - they are basically the same.

    you don't want anything with a strong flavour - olive, safflower, peanut...

    I usually use canola.

  • We use a 12 oz can of soda lol. Cake mix, soda, bake- it turns out the same way as when you use the ingredients. Dark soda with dark cake, light or fruity soda with light cake. Strawberry lime soda is really good with white cake.

  • I use margarine or butter, sour cream, or applesauce instead of the oil sometimes, otherwise it's vegetable, canola, or sunflower oil.

  • I have never made a cake from a box. I would think that olive oil would be too heavy. Use sunflower seed oil
