Can You use olive oil instead of vegetable oil to cook brownies?

You'll be able to taste the olive oil, which is not usually what I'm going for with brownies.

I've done this twice. The first time I also added a little orange extract and people went nuts over the brownies - everyone asked for the recipe. The second time I just did the evoo with no orange and it bombed. I guess the orange masked the olive flavor and complimented the chocolate well - without it it just tasted off.

If you're determined to use olive oil, I wonder if it would work if you used light olive oil, which has a lot less taste than EVOO?

I have and it tasted just fine.
