Oils for baking

I wonder if I can use extra virgin olive oil in baking whenever it calls for a vegetable oil. I'm not sure about this and would like advice, please. I'm not cooking or baking much anymore and I am trying to avoid having ingredients around that I don't really need.

Thanks,
Jovin

You may not like the olive oil flavor in your baked goods. Typically, it's better to use neutral flavored oils for baking. Consider corn or vegetable oils.

Jovan, I keep Bertolli Extra Light Tasting Olive Oil on hand for baking. It's a refined olive oil, no discernible olive flavor, and takes to heat well. I save my good EVOO for when I want nice finishing olive oil, or to use in salad dressing. I've used the Bertolli Extra Light for baking muffins and it works great - for sautes, too.

Wow! Thanks for that information. I went out and bought some vegetable oil today but maybe I'll just return it and pick up some Bertoli.

Thanks so much.
