    Talking Guild Potluck Cake part II

    Okay so I am always trying to cut the fat in bake good so a wonderful woman on this site posted an Apricot Nectar Cake. It was just wonderful. I made one change, it was one of the moistest cakes I have ever made

    Change
    2/3 cup oil (veg or any mild tasting oil)
    For
    3/4 pear puree
    one can of pears, puree all of it measure out 3/4 of a cup and save the rest for next time. You won't miss the fat, and it does not change the favor of the cake that's why I used pears. Give it a try and let me know. You can do this with any cake recipe
    Enjoy

    Do you drain the syrup or juice from the can? DH is diabetic so he usually selects something artifically sweetened or in light syrup or juice. This technique sounds like a pot of gold discovery! thx

    great question
    the pears are in pear juice concentrate and I drank the juice didn't use it to make the puree. I am sure you can use any type of pear maybe even fresh ones...

    You can also use applesauce instead of oil. I used to use the Mott's natural or unsweetened kind a lot.

    I believe that was my recipe for Apricot Nectar Cake-our favorite dessert. I'm interested in the change you've made. Did the cake rise like it was supposed to? I've tried using applesauce as a substitute, but my loaves of bread didn't raise and ended up with a strange consistency-threw it all out.

    I sure will! We're all dieting here, but if I can cut the calories, I might be able to justify making one. he he he

    Kay Carlson, Pillsbury makes diabetic cake mixes now. They are very good. I make them for a friend of ours when we play dominoes. Barny

    Will you please post the whole recipe again, regular and reduced fat? I would like to have it all in one spot so I won't get lost again while I search for it. I get lost when I do a search because I get distracted by all the other interesting stuff out there. TIA
