Hi everybody!!!!!! I'm new here and I was wondering if you guys could help me out. Here's my question: how many callories do you reduce in a cake if you substitute the oil for applesauce? the box that I used called for 1/3 cup of oil and instead I used 1/3 cup of applesauce so I was wondering, how many calories would a serving now be if the if the box said that a normal serving with oil would be 240 calories? sorry I hope I'm not confusing :smug: Thank You!!!

1 tbsp oil = 120 cals
1/3 cup= 6 tbsp
1/2 cup unsweetned applesauce= 60 calories

The rest of the math is up to you.
