I always use Canola oil but I noticed Earlene uses Wesson when a Cake recipe calls for it. What is your favorite and why do you prefer it?
I always use canola. I switched from vegetable oil to canola and use it for everything. No difference in taste or texture that I've noticed.
What's the purpose of switching from vegetable to canola oil?
Canola is a heart healthy oil. Much better than vegetable oil.
I alwys use canola oil, it is better all round, better tasting & healthier. Wrightway, Wesson is a trademark, they make canola oil too.
I only use Crisco veg oil.
I would use whatever was on the shelf .. vegetable, canola, it's all the same to me. Wesson, Crisco, Walmart brand ... it's all the same to me. My last purchase was a 35 pound jug of Kitchen Essentials brand from GFS.
Since it's all the same to me, price is the determining factor.
I use Canola oil in any brand that's on sale,it seems to taste better to me than vegetable oil...I can tell a difference when I fry my eggs in canola compared to vegetable oil, I like canola's flavor more, it dont seem to interfere with the taste of things like vegatable oil does.
Superstar - I had a Wesson brain lapse..I knew that ...sorry
thanks to all that responded. Wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something.
LOL, I know the feeling Wrightway.
frosting111 - agree on the taste, canola is lighter tasting. Vegetable leaves a rather weird taste in cakes, brownies etc.
I actually substitute oil with applesauce. I've always said there's no difference, but yesterday and last night when I baked and had run out of applesauce I used oil (vegetable oil in one cake and when I ran out of that, canola oil in another), my DH and I both noticed how much stronger the taste of the oil was. We both prefer the applesauce. (I use it cup for cup - a straight substitution).
