When I use prune-based fat subs, I use 1/2 the amount for the fat or oil
called for in
the recipe -- for example, use 1/4 cup prune puree for 1/2 cup butter.
In bread baking, I use 1 T of frozen apple juice concentrate for 1 T of oil
for in the recipe.
Last night I made banana bread in my Zoji ABM and the recipe called for 1/3
2/3 mashed bananas, 2 eggs, and 1/4 sour cream. I just subbed 1/3 cup
mashed bananas for the oil (total of 1 cup of bananas), 1/2 cup liquid egg
replacer, and used fat free sour cream. It turned out great.
Sometimes, I think, you just have to experiment. I've used "Lighter Bake"
(prune based) and I like it a lot. It does tend to darken lighter baked
Hope this helps.
