Secrets of Success




Did you know that you can substitute applesauce for the fat portion of your ingredients in baking. If you are baking cookies for example; you can substitute the same amount of applesauce for the amount of butter/margarine/or oil it calls for. The result is a fluffier cookie. Tastes great with a lot less calories.

  • Would this work in making bread as well? - by MELLYMK
  • I knew this because I've seen it in recipes or modified directions before. I think I've tried it but need to do it regularly. I can go months and months without making a cake or cookies. But we just had a month with several birthdays and I wish I had applesauce on hand when I was making the cakes. I need to really make this a rule. "I will only make cakes with applesauce." I don't think I knew about using applesauce in cookie recipes. I will try that, too. Don't make too many cookies anymore but it's good to know for when I do. - by REEDSKI
  • Yeap but I haven't tried it yet. - by BABY_GIRL69
