I know my daughter uses applesauce instead of oil in her cakes to save calories.
Maybe a CC'er has a recipe like this, or if you google-search?
indydebi, this is really interesting. so oil in a recipe can be substituted with fruit? that's awesome. i wonder what kind of fruits are allowed. maybe bananas?
