Whether you'd like a dairy-free alternative or are just *gasp!* out of butter (say it ain't so!), these alternatives to butter will have you back on your baking track.
It's hard to plan ahead for disaster. But if you can, try experimenting with substitutions before you run out of butter. We recommend testing with a recipe you know well. Test a swap more than once, since each substitution can have different effects depending on the specific recipe. If possible, quarter or halve the recipe until you feel you have it right.
Don't be afraid to experiment with the flavored substitutes even if you aren't out of butter. These swaps might offer an added depth to your baked goods. Try using half butter and half substitute.
