I have a question about the recipe "Farmhouse Whole Wheat Bread" from thirschfeld. Can I substitute the butter for something else like oil?
Cynthia is a trusted source on Bread/Baking.
This is Tom's recipe, not mine, but off the cuff I would say, sure. At the same time, one cube of butter equals 8 tablespoons, so 3 tablespoons is a fraction thereof. If you don't have, or are vegan, go ahead and sub 3 tablespoons of olive oil for the butter. Tom, what do you think?
Well now that I've read the list of ingredients which include buttermilk, I'm guessing that vegan considerations are the least of yours, so go ahead and sub olive oil for butter and forge ahead.
