A question about a recipe: No-Fuss Vegan Cornbread

23d6d196 ab79 49b8 a404 e43e5020db6f  cornb

I have a question about the recipe "No-Fuss Vegan Cornbread" from Gena Hamshaw. Can I use butter instead of canola oil? If so, how do I make the substitution? My husband is allergic to milk and eggs, but, for some odd reason, butter doesn't affect him.

Yes, but you have to melt the butter first.

Also, keep in mind that butter is only about 80-82% fat (remainder is water and milk solids), so you may need to use slightly more butter tsp to equal the fat content specified in recipe...i.e, 4/10 cup or 6 and 2/3 tbsp of butter compared to the 1/3 cup or 5 and 1/3 tbsp of oil.

Ghee would work better. As Nancy pointed out, simple melted butter is not 100% fat. Ghee is.
