4 tbsp baking posder

  2. Grease a pan (I used a medium vision pot sprayed lightly with pan) and put in oven to preheat.
  3. Mix all ingredients, pour batter into heated pan and bake for 20 min.
  4. To make applesauce quick I cut up 1 apple and put in bowl with a bit or water and then microwave on high for 2 mins.
  5. Then I use my handblender to make it into sauce.
  6. Make sure you do this in a tall, thin container as it tends to spit up and hot apple sauce really burns! One apple makes about 1/3 of a cup  so you could use storebought for this.
