Did you know apple sauce is a substitute for eggs in baking? Several cakes and desserts can be baked with homemade apple sauce. It is super easy to make.
Homemade apple sauce can be used as a dip just as a little snack with some cut fruits. It can also be used to pour over ice cream just like caramel or fudge sauce. A healthier alternative!
I used this batch of homemade apple sauce to make apple pancakes. I have adapted this apple sauce from The Pioneer Woman recipe. Homemade apple sauce is scrumptious and can be eaten by the spoonful. Delicious!
I do not add butter to apple sauce and keep it plain and simple. Any kind of apples you have on hand is enough to make this homemade apple sauce.
