Convert Shortening to Oil?

Answer

To substitute shortening with oil is a 3 (oil) to 4 (shortening) ratio. For example, the recipe asks for 3/4 cup shortening you will need 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon of oil. Please note that using oil instead of the shortening called for in a recipe in baking items such as cakes, cookies or pastries will cause the items to be more dense (less fluffy).
