I have had some success but the only way to know is to try it and experiment. Here is a delicious coffeecake recipe that I have tried from Feeding the Healthy Vegetarian Family and it uses oil:
Note: make the struesel first in your food processor . . .
1 cup apple juice
1 cup applesauce
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspon cinammon
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350. Oil and flour 9 or 10 inch square baking pan or a springform pan. Blend juice, applesauce, syrup, oil, and vanilla in blender or food procesor.
In separate bowl, sift remaining ingredients. Add applesauce mixture. Saple half in pan, put layer of streusel, put remaining batther and than remaining streusel on top.
Take 40 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
1/3 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup rolled oats
1 teaspoon cinammon
1 1/2 cups walnuts
2 tablespoons oil
Place first 4 ingredients in food processor, chop coarsely. Pour in oil and pulse to mix.
