I don't do much baking. I have made muffins from a SP recipe and
used applesauce for sweetener. They were really good.

I have substituted apple sauce and pumpkin puree in baking recipes.

One other thing I have tried was tofu chocolate cake. It sounds weird but I brought it in for my co-workers to try and everyone loved it! I shared the recipe with many of them who have made it for various events. Even the wellness coach here at work asked me for the recipe. emoticon

I don't do alot of baking, but when I do, I usually follow the recipe. I'm not a big pie eater, but will make an apple pie for DH during apple season.

I don't do much baking other than Christmas cookies so when I do, I allow making them with the ingredients and do no substitutions.

Love fruit pies, but don't make them. Occasionally when out, I may order a piece of strawberry rhubarb or blueberry. Again, it's not a regular thing so I allow myself the full recipe pie slice.

I don't really do a whole lot of baking unless we're going to a family get-together. I use applesauce or pumpkin puree in place of oil & eggs.

Hubby doesn't eat many desserts & I won't make them just for me because I might eat them all.

I don't make pies, but if I were to make one, cherry is my fave.
