There are posts on message boards all over the internet touting applesauce used in place of oil when baking doesn't change consistency or taste in said baked goods.
I'm here to tell you that's a freakin' lie. I used applesauce in brownies instead of oil and.....dear god, the brownies turned out disgusting. Mealy with almost a gelatin consistency after you start to eat it.
I'll take my brownies full of fat, like God intended, thankyouverymuch.
