Can I reduce the fat in a cake recipe that tasted too oily?

Esty | Nov 21, 2011 04:56 PM

I recently made a pound cake that called for half cup butter and half cup oil. (Yield 1 loaf)
The cake felt and tasted too oily. Can I just reduce the oil by half? Or must I add another liquid in its place.

Just to clarify, I am not looking for a low fat version of this cake. I liked the recipe as is except for the fact that it felt/tasted oily.

Thanks!!
