Would it be horrible? Want to make an apple cake in my new loaf tin. Too lazy to go back to supermarket for sunflower oil.

Not sure how much to use - 100g instead of 100mls of oil?

Try melting the spread to get the same volume or this says that 100ml will weigh about 90g. I make apple cake with stewed apple and cool the apple down by melting the butter in it.

I regularly use mild olive oil (make absolutely sure not a stronger tasting one) in cakes as DD is dairy free and seems healthier than the spreads etc.

Thanks! It's just bog standard Tesco olive oil so probably not too strong. You also put the apple in raw finely chopped but was going to try and chop it in blender which will probably make it quite pulpy.
