Yesterday, Nan Schiller over at Foodal, wrote an article about oil substitutions that can replace oil in baked goods.
There were the obvious stand ins like: butter, applesauce, and sour cream, but the list also included some very out of the box ideas, and trust me, after reading the article I understand why certain unusual substitutes work.
The article really got my creative juices flowing and I'm ready to experiment.
