In Response to Olive Oil vs Vegetable Oil:
Do not use the extra virgin, but use the light olive oil.  It has very little taste.

I have recently baked muffins, brownies and cookies using olive oil, instead of vegetable oil. I LOVE the flavor, or lack of oil taste. I can't see any reason to go back to using vegetable oil.

 GRANA here;
 I 
prefer EVOO but not for baking.The very thing that makes me like it(distinctive flavor) is what maes it unsitable for bakig sweet things( cookies, cakesetc.)It does not tolerate high temperatures well ( smokes& burns rapidlyl; making it unsutablefor deep frying It's great for dipping warm  crusty bread into(instead of butter
)It's OK for saute ifyou arecareful w/ temp used & stir faithfully & fast. .I guees if you use regular or light olive oil  it could be used for baking??? but I read that canola oil is lowest in saturated fats of all oils & it works well for both baking & frying.
 
Sesame & corn oils are good too;find a type you llike & try it in both frying& baking.
Then come back PLEASE & post your opinion based on your own experience

The extra virgin olive oil has a stronger taste and I think that makes it unsuitable for baking, unless you're making bread.   I have used the light olive oil, or a mix of olive/canola oil in baking and it tastes no different than using vegetable oil.

GRANA  here;
I loveEVOO( Extra Virgin Olive   Oil  as a dip for warm  crusty bread( replacing butter) I think its flavor is too strong for cookies.I have used it in muffins & quick bread(sparingly)& adding  roasted garlic mashed & Italian herbs, recieved compliments from guests wanting to know" where I got the bread?"

"
For tir-frying,I use  themore traditional peanut oil or canola oil
I use EVOO for saute ; being carefllof to high a heat which could cause it to smoke & flare up
.Surprised

I use Ex Vir. Olive oil for sauteing and grilling on my Paninni Grill but I am going to try olive oil for baking too!   Always get the most and best baking knowledge here @ VBB!   Thanks Verlee for bring this idea to VBB.

DiAnne, just make sure you get regular olive oil, not EVOO, for the baking. I think you'll like it. I don't use anything else in my baking now.

In Response to Olive Oil vs Vegetable Oil : Wrong! There is a very different taste and texture. Maybe using the light olive oil is ok, but canola oil is just as healthy.
Posted by Angela F

maybe more healthy,  because it has omega - 3 in it!! oliva oil is the flavor, on vegetables even meats, sea foods but baking has to watch out for it  flavors, is very aromatic. that´s way is so popular in mediterean food, enhance it!!!!!

When I cook with olive oil hubby will say the food has a different taste(I never tell him about the oil, I will say "tastes ok to me").  There have been times when I use part olive & part all veg. but I have not baked with it. 

P.S. I do not fib to him, I just say it tastes ok to me, not that it tastes the same Sealed.
