Default reduce fat in baking

You can substitute up to 50% apple sauce or fruit puree in place of oil when you bake to reduce fat content, i.e. 8 oz fat or oil called in recipe, use 4 ounces of apple sauce

;D

This works particularly well for fruit cakes. Just make sure your puree isn't made up of just prunes

Where can you buy apple sauce here? I used that trick all the time in America but haven't found it since I moved here.

That kind of applesauce isn't the same. :-/
Closest is the baby applesauce and using that isn't very frugal at all. I will just have to make some and bottle it.
Thanks for your help.

I remember making "apple snow" many years ago at school. Just stewed apple mixed with whipped egg white ... looks lovely and goes further.

never heard of apple snow, sounds nice, do you put sugar in the egg whites to make it sweet or is the apple enough??
