Prune Puree

A good substitute for Sunsweet's Lighter Bake. This mixture can be used as a substitute for fat in baking - use 1 tablespoon puree for 1 tablespoon fat. Stores very well in refrigerator.


  1. Combine 1 1/3 cups (8 ounces) pitted prunes and 6 tablespoons water in container of food processor. Pulse on and off until prunes are finely chopped.

Makes 1 cup.

To use: Replace all or part of the butter, margarine, or other solid shortening in cake, muffin, and quick bread recipes with half as much Prune Puree. If the recipe calls for oil, replace all or part of the oil with three-fourths as much Prune Puree.
