Which of the following can be used as a substitute for oil in baking?

  • lemon zest
  • almond extract
  • orange juice
  • applesauce correct

    Applesauce is one of the guilt-free substitutes for oil in baked goods. Substituting applesauce adds moisture and flavor to baked treats as well as fiber and nutrients. It works best in cakes, muffins and quick breads that are already dense and somewhat moist. Common favorites such as carrot cake, spice cake, gingerbread cake and chocolate cake are good recipes in which to use applesauce substitutes. It is best to do a bit of experimentation, however, to find the oil-to-applesauce substitution ratio that works best for you. Source: LiveStrong.com
