Product Talk: Applesauce


Today is National Applesauce Cake Day! Any cake can become an applesauce cake by simply replacing the oil in a cake with applesauce. This simple substitution will lower the amount of fat in your cake resulting in a lower calorie slice of cake.  

When picking an applesauce to replace your oil, pick an unsweetened applesauce. Full Circle Natural Organic No Sugar Added Applesauce that has a NuVal score of 21 and Mott’s Natural No Sugar Added Applesauce that has a NuVal score of 26 are two good examples of applesauce to use in your favorite cake recipe.
