Sub Applesauce Or A Banana For Oil In Baking


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

When you're baking muffins or quick bread or making waffles or pancakes, you can substitute applesauce (or pear sauce) or mashed ripe banana for a portion of oil. I generally sub 1/2 to 3/4 of the volume for muffins or quick bread, and about half for waffles or pancakes.

For the waffles or pancakes, make sure you've got a good non-stick surface.

    I do this often in my banana bread, and it really does work!
