Making Desserts With Applesauce And Egg Substitutes Plus Share


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Anytime a baking recipe calls for eggs I use egg beaters. I also use apple sauce instead of oil for my cakes and sometimes in place of part of the butter. I then bring it to work (before I have any). This way I get the little bit I want but don't have it sitting around the house to tempt me later. My co-workers love the flavor and comment on the moistness, plus they are thrilled to know it has less fat/calories.

    Great way to not add calories to cakes is to substitute diet soda for the oil, water and eggs. For a light colored cake, i.e. yellow, spice, etc., add a can of diet sprite. For chocolate cake, add a can of diet coke. It tastes just the same and very moist.

    Sharing is awesome. Usually I only want one tiny bit of anything I bake (I'm not a sweet eater), so it's always great to give the rest away.

    Sounds like a winner. I am just wondering if the measurements are the same??? emoticon
