Any fruit purée will work. Also any fat including butter, oil, mayo.

If you have plums or peaches (soft fruit) take the pit out, leave the skin on and toss the fruit in the blender. Instant fruit puree! Skin will get all pureed too but you get the benefit of the fibre from it. Both plum and peach make a nice taste variance for the apple sauce in cakes/muffins.

I've subbed a pureed banana for oil without a problem in a chocolate cake. It would depend on the type of cake whether the flavor would come through or not.
