Using Applesauce Instead of Oil

Does it have to be unsweetened applesauce when you use applesauce to replace oil in a recipe? Will regular applesauce work just as well?

I've used regular old apple sauce. Replace the same amount of oil with it in the recipe. (09/08/2009)

Yes, of course, but reduce the sugar you use in the recipe. If your trying to remove fat, then adding more sugar just doesn't make sense. Good job looking after yourself. :) (09/08/2009)

Using Applesauce Instead of Oil

I use applesauce instead of oil all the time. When I first started doing this, I only replaced 1/2 the oil, to get my family accustomed to it. Then I started slowly replacing more and more until I did not have to use oil anymore. Using applesauce, does give the cake a little different consistency than oil. I would not suggest to use all applesauce in a brownie recipe. Substitute 1/2 and 1/2. (09/10/2009)

Yes, I use a standard chocolate cake mix which calls for 1/2 cup of oil, I replace the oil with 1 cup unsweetened apple sauce, use skim milk in place of water, add 4 heaping tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder, 3 eggs. also I use fat and sugar free chocolate pudding made with skim milk(as frosting). the cake is rich and wonderful and fat free :) enjoy!
