How about apple sauce? Its used frequently as a low fat alternative to oil in baking. I wouldn't use olive oil. The taste would probably carry over.

DEFINITELY do not use the olive oil. tapedshut.gif I've made that mistake before. It DOES affect the taste of your sweet stuff. icon_lol.gif

Applesauce is good. I've used melted butter, too, in place of oil. My cake came out pretty darn flat (Don't know if that's WHY or not) but it tasted good!
