  • i drain and freeze fruit cocktail (only freeze for a short time, so the pieces aren't too hard) and stir the peices into the applesauce. yum!
    also try cinnamon or pureed strawberries.

  • I once posted a question in a recipe group for meatballs recipies or meatloaf and one mom said she uses applesauce in hers!!!!! Guess it keeps them nice and moist!! I use applesauce like popsicles for sore throats, it's cheaper and just as tasty!! Best of all there's no fighting for the orange popsicles!!!!

  • I have a recipe for an applesauce cake. My moms used to make it. It is excellent. Are you looking for new ways to serve it to kids or just have a lot of it around? My grandkids love raspberries whole stirred into their applesauce. Also, I once read to substitute applesauce for the vegatable oil in boxed cake mixes.

  • applesauce muffins
    I have a super easy recipe and went to look for the cookbook it is in and for some reason it's gone.
    applesauce and cottage cheese is good and I put it on my kids oatmeal to cool it down faster.

  • Pumpkin Spice Bread
    3 Tbsp ground flaxseed or 4 ½ teaspoons Ener-G Egg Replacer (equivalent of 3 eggs)
    ½ cup water or non-dairy milk (6 Tbsp if using Ener-G instead of flax)
    2 cups granulated sugar
    1½ cups unsweetened applesauce
    1 14-ounce can pumpkin puree
    3 cups all-purpose flour
    1 tsp ground cloves
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 tsp nutmeg
    1 tsp baking soda
    ½ tsp baking powder
    ¾ tsp salt
    Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly oil two 8-inch loaf pans or four 6 x 3 x 2-inch mini-loaf pans.
    In a food processor or in a bowl using an electric hand mixer, whip the flaxseed and water (or Ener-G and water) together until thick and creamy. In a large bowl, stir together the sugar, applesauce, pumpkin puree, and flaxseed (or Ener-G) mixture.

  • In a medium-sized bowl, stir together the flour, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Thoroughly combine the dry ingredients, then add them to the wet. Stir until just combined.

    Spoon the batter into the prepared loaf pans.

    Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick or knife inserted into the center comes out clean. If using mini-loaf pans, you will want to check for doneness after 30 minutes.

    Let the breads cool for at least 20 minutes before removing from the loaf pans. This is important, as the bread is still baking and needs time to coalesce in the hot pan.

  • When baking, you can use apple sauce instead of oil. It will keep it moist, but be healthier.
