    Question substitute for crisco???

    Found an old recipe for a pound cake that needs one cup of crisco. Can I substitute oil or butter?

    Butter will work, you may want to change the amount of salt you put in if you are using salted butter.
    Never lie, steal, cheat, or drink. But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love. If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away........

    but wouldn't crisco hold together more?
    pound cake if firm. i'm sure it'll be ok to use butter but i'd think it'll change the cake a bit.

    Thanks, will try the butter. Don't buy crisco anymore and need to make the cake now. Cup for cup? I would guess.

    I am wondering if the recipe calls for crisco shortening or crisco oil? if oil it will be fine, I have seen pound cake recipes for both!!

    B U T T E R! Crisco grosses me out. I have a recipe that calls for butter and cream cheese. It's delish!

    I just made 2 sour cream pound cakes the other day and the recipe called for 1 cup butter and it was fine, and don't grease the pan.
