Is Carrot Cake Better with Oil or Butter?

A lot of cake recipes will use either butter or oil in their ingredients. This Carrot cake recipe calls for using vegetable oil in the recipe. You may be surprised to know that the use of oil is actually best for this carrot cake rather than butter. The reason for this is that the oil is what will make the cake a lot more softer and moist.

How Is This Cake So Moist?

Like another question about whether oil or butter is better, oil is your answer. And, to create a far moister cake then most, oil is the ingredient you will need. To make the cake as moist as possible, you will need a lot of oil, this recipe uses about 1 1/2 Cup of oil.
