Replacing Oil with Applesauce

2 Things:

1)In order to make this recipe healthier, I'd like to replace the oil with unsweetened applesauce. Have any of you tried this? I'm making these for Thanksgiving and have to impress!

2) Is the lemon zest very important? I've never used it in corn bread before.


Corn Bread Muffins
Makes 12 muffins

Ingredients:

1 cup flour
1 cup cornmeal
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup corn or vegetable oil
3/4 cup soymilk
2 tablespoons soy yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400.In a large bowl, sift together dry ingredients (flour through sugar). In a seperate bowl, wisk together wet ingredients (oil through vanilla). Fold wet into dry, halfway through mixing add lemon zest and distribute well.Spray muffin tins w/ non stick cooking spray. Fill each tin 2/3 full. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm.


Thanks!
