    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.

    Re: reduce fat in baking
    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.

    Re: reduce fat in baking
    apple pie filling is the same as apple sauce but more sugar

    just chop the apple add sugar to taste and a drop of water and stew till soft

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

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