    Can you substitute butter with applesauce in this recipe?

  11. 092813_amb on February 22, 2013: (Reply)

    This seems easy

  12. Allrecipes on February 22, 2013: (Reply)

    Fantastic! Thank you for letting us know.

  13. Allrecipes on February 22, 2013: (Reply)

    Hello. Apple sauce is a great substitution for butter. We would recommend
    using 1/2 apple sauce and 1/2 butter. Let us know how the brownies come out
    for you.

  14. neha r on February 23, 2013: (Reply)

    All recipes 🙂 please could you make chocolate fudge cake and note it as a
    request by me 🙂 xxx

  15. lamamani on February 24, 2013: (Reply)

    I am going to try half apple sauce and half butter. Thank you!

    When i make this brownies,it seems that the top of it does not form some
    sort of a crust. I used a 9×13 inch pan but its made out of glasses instead
    of the one you used.Is it because of the pan ? or its because of my oven is
    not that hot ?

  18. ace sees on February 26, 2013: (Reply)

    I made this today =D i did use apple sauce and used 1/4 cup less sugar it
    was delish but not as rich as normal brownies but was still good =)

  19. Allrecipes on February 26, 2013: (Reply)

    That’s great! Thank you for sharing.

  20. Allrecipes on February 26, 2013: (Reply)

    Thank you for your question. Every oven bakes slightly differently. You
    might want to check the temperature of your oven to make sure it is
    accurate. Happy baking!

  21. Rachel Ellis on February 27, 2013: (Reply)

    I baked brownies before but it was more like chocolate cake can you tell me
    if these are crunchy on the outside and soft and fudge like on the inside ?

  22. lamamani on March 7, 2013: (Reply)

    Mine came out more like chocolate cake. Still good

  23. Denaaaaa on March 28, 2013: (Reply)

    degree celcius?

  24. Allrecipes on March 28, 2013: (Reply)

    Thank you for your question. 350 degrees F would be 175 degrees in Celsius.
    Happy baking!

    “Chocolate on chocolate is never a bad thing” and of course I as a black
    person could not help but laugh out loud ^_^

    If you’re thinking about making this again (if you haven’t already), leave
    out the baking powder and use only 2 eggs.

    Hi. Can I use cake flour instead of all purpose flour that many recipes

  28. Allrecipes on June 3, 2013: (Reply)

    Thank you for your question, Sabrina. For every cup of all purpose flour,
    try using a cup of cake flour plus two tablespoons of cake flour. Let us
    know how the recipe comes out – Happy baking!

  29. susan yang on June 24, 2013: (Reply)

    Just made this, excited to see how it comes out. And I added a little extra
    ingredient, instant coffee

    Can i use chocolate or chocolate syrup instead of coco powder?? Plzzz and

  41. Allrecipes on September 2, 2013: (Reply)

    Hi, thanks for your question. We wouldn’t recommend using chocolate syrup
    in place of the cocoa powder, but you can try using unsweetened chocolate
    or carob powder.

    Can i use dark chocolate instead of cocoa and how much chocolate

  56. Allrecipes on September 23, 2013: (Reply)

    Thank you for your question, Pham! We’d recommend using the same amount of
    melted chocolate – try and check the consistency. If the batter looks too
    loose, add a little bit of flour. Enjoy!
