I am being lazy this AM and want to make a boxed cake mix but it calls for 1/2 cup oil. I ran out and only have butter. Can I substitute the butter for the oil? If so, do I melt it or not?

Actually, I remember I went to a friends house once and she did use butter. I'm not just sure if she melted it.

Yes, you have to melt it.

I use mayonaise instead of the oil for all my cakes..... what is mayo besides oil and eggs ? It makes a really nice moist cake, and no, you do not taste the mayo......
