What can be substituted for vegetable oil?

So I am about to make brownies...and I was wondering if that was possible? And if so, measurement for measurement, or how would I go about doing that. Thanks guys!

  • sour cream, mayo and yogurt are substituted for oil in recips in equal portions. REMEMBER, if you are using flavored or vanilla yogurt, you should cut back a little on the sugar. I really like subbing mayo. It gives a great dense rish brownie. But anyway, say your recipe calls for 1/4 cup oil, use 1/4 cup yogurt.

  • I would think equal amounts to what the oil calls for. I know that the no pudge brownies are made with yogurt instead of oil and they are always yummy. :)
