Butter instead of oil in a cake recipe

Thanks @Norcalbaker59,

I’m pairing the oil with full fat yogurt and extracts and spices.

The melted butter and milk seems to dry out a little too quickly over a day or two. :)

I’ve seen the buttermilk, creme fraise and sour cream alternatives, they look like good options, but a tad pricey and does not keep as well as yogurt in the fridge. :)

oil and full sour cream would be a good combination for moisture. The acid in the sour cream has other benefits too. It makes for a softer crumb and adds very nice flavor. It’s one of my favorite dairies to add to cake, quick breads, and muffins.
