In case you haven't noticed, I don't like to cook or bake with butter. I learned years ago that applesauce is an excellent substitute for butter in a wide variety of recipes - cakes, breads, rolls, even cookies. I try to keep a jar or two on hand, but every now and then I realize all too late that I am out. Usually this happens right in the middle of a recipe. This simple applesauce is my quick resolution to just such a predicament. It is also great to feed your little one :)
