Do you ever substitute oil for butter in your cakes?  If so, how do you work out how much oil you should use in a recipe compared to butter?
I am hoping this substitution might make my cakes a bit more moist to last longer in a bain marie without drying out.
Thanks.

I'm not a baker but I know that in Greece butter is often overlooked as an ingredient.  I've eaten cookies, cakes, and other baked goods made with pure olive oil and they've been delicious.  I wouldn't know how to do it myself but I can attest to the fact that if done right you get excellent results.
