 Hello all, Im new here, and I was wondering if you could direct me on how to substitute oil with applesauce for baking cakes, cookies, etc.  Im trying to cook healthier and Im sort of confused on how much to use versus the actual oil measurement for the recipe.  Thanks for the help.

I've always heard to replace it cup for cup but I think the recipes usually cook up a little softer that way.  I tried using a little less applesauce and it seemed to work better.  I haven't baked using applesauce in a while though.

I have always heard of baking with applesauce, but I have never actually tried it so I'm not much help. LOL.

I am not sure either.  I thought someone posted the conversions in our forum.

 Thanks!  I thought I read somewhere before that the measurements would be different for each.  That clears things up now doesnt it :)
