When doing all your holiday baking, try substituting 1/2 the oil called for in the recipe with the same amount of applesauce. The result will be more nutritious, moister, and less costly. The taste will not be affected.

I have been substituting applesauce for oil in baked goods for years and it works wonderfully! (12/02/2008)
I do this often too. It even works with bread baked from scratch. But make sure you use UNsweetened! (12/02/2008)
