It's might be better to substitute oils, butter and margarine with applesauce in oil-based baked goods like muffins and breads, or moist cakes. Substitute applesauce one for one with the oil, and it helps to add in 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. They say a little oil goes a long way in contributing to a better taste and texture. I've done this a few times with a zucchini bread recipe that calls for 1/2 cup of oil. I use 1/4 cup oil and 1/4 cup applesauce and the bread tastes great.

Can you substitute apple sauce for butter in a fruitcake recipe?

No. Baking a cake involves chemical reactions between the ingredients.

This is not to say that the end result would be inedible - it might be - but it won't be a fruit cake.

How do you substitute applesauce for butter in cake mixes?

Depends on the cake recipe; pound cakes or Victoria sponges rely on their fat content for taste and texture, so it's better not to substitute apple sauce in these. (The result is slightly doughy and damp if any apple sauce is added.) It's also better not to substitute in chiffon cakes, since apple sauce weighs down the batter instead of letting it rise the to the volume that it's meant to. For other cake/muffin /biscuit recipes, you should be able to substitute 1/3 of the fat for apple sauce (i.e. add 1/3 of the weight/volume of fat as apple sauce, and add the remaining 2/3 of the fat as butter) - you may need to reduce the quantity of any other liquids in the recipe, since apple sauce is far more liquid than butter. Adding the same quantity of liquid can result in a really soggy cake.
