Applesauce

 
 

applesauce

 

Applesauce is a very versatile and frugal food.   If you have an apple tree, it is very easy to make applesauce.  If you don't like the way it tastes, you can just use it for baking. 

Applesauce comes in large jars.  If you do not want to finish the jar with your meals, use it for baking.  It is a great ingredient to add flavor to cakes, and they smell wonderful when they are baking.

You can also use applesauce as a partial substitute for both eggs and oil.  You can substitute 1/4 cup of applesauce for an egg in most recipes.  You can also substitute 1/2 of the vegetable oil in a recipe for an equal amount of applesauce.

 

Here are a couple frugal recipes that use applesauce.

Applesauce Cake

2 tsp cinnamon
1 yellow cake mix

In a small bowl mix the sugar and cinnamon.  Set aside.

Mix the remaining 3 ingredients.  Beat on high speed for 2 minutes

Pour 1/2 of the batter into the pan.  Sprinkle with the sugar mix.  Top with the remaining batter and gently smooth the top.
