Prune (Dried Fruit) Puree – Butter Baking Substitute


Equivalent: 1 cup of Butter in Strong Flavored Desserts


  • ½ cup Pitted Prunes
  • ¼ cup Water

Directions: Puree the prunes and water in a blender until smooth. This will have a strong flavor, and thus is best suited to heavily spiced baked goods (i.e. gingerbread) or chocolate-based desserts. Substitute other dried fruit such as apples, peaches, and apricots for half of the prunes for a flavor and nutrient variation.
