Butterless baking:) How to modify recipes?

cups123 | Jan 11, 2009 09:51 AM

I really enjoy baking cakes and cookies but am very much so turned off by the amount of butter and fat called for by many recipes. Does anyone have a general rule for modifications or recipes that they use that are dramatically reduced in this way?

For example: Last night I made banana bread. I used the recipe below. Delicious but one whole stick of butter!! I can't enjoy eating it because of this. Any ways to modify it and any other recipes people would like to share?

3 cups flour (2 cups WW and 1 cup white A/P)
1½ tsp baking powder
1½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
½ tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans)
1½ sticks butter
1 + 1/8 cups buttermilk
1½ cup mashed bananas
