im making a no bake cake, and the crust calls for almonds, dates and coconut oil. can i use butter? or another oil? Thanks!
hardlikearmour is a trusted home cook.
Coconut oil is solid at room temperature, so I'd go with butter. You could probably use vegetable shortening, but it wouldn't taste as good as butter. Just do a 1:1 trade for this application.
I second the butter. Coconut oil is often used as a butter replacement by people who can't do dairy.
Butter, although i substitute ghee (clarified butter) in lieu of any vegetable shortening. works beautifully & has a lovely nutty aroma.
thanks all, used butter and it turned out delicious!
