Oil vs. Butter in Muffins, Cakes, etc.

I think you may find this helpful: I baked a carrot cake yesterday following the recipe using vegetable oil only. It was so bland that I am in the process of making it again with butter (the creaming method) I also plan to substitute brown sugar for white sugar. I checked this message board to find out if my substitution today will make a difference. I plan to go forward with the butter and let you know how it compares to yesterday's bland Carrot/Oil cake.
