Cutting Fat From Baked Goods


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Unsweetened applesauce is an excellent fat (eg, oil, butter or shortening) substitute for many baked goods. Generally, you use half as much applesauce as the recipe calls for fats. You will need to experiment some, because different fats produce different chemical reactions (eg, thickening, crispness) that applesauce doesn't always replicate. Worth the effort for the huge amount of calories saved!

    In the past I have used fruit juice in place of both the liquid and the fat in cake mixes. Besides replacing the fat its adds flavor.
