It’s happened to all of us at some point: we’re in the middle of baking something when we’ve run out of that key ingredient! But don’t panic if you have to bake without eggs… there are so many different substitutes.
Here’s a few different ones to choose from (each substitute equals one egg)
- mix one tbsp ground flax with 3 tbsp water (works great in baking, especially cakes)
- one mashed banana (for baking, note that it adds extra sweetness, so you can reduce the sugar if you like)
- 1/4 cup pureed pumpkin (I use this in my bran muffins)
- 1/4 cup applesauce
- 1 tbsp soy milk powder, 1 tbsp corn starch, 2 tbsp water
- 2 tbsp potato starch
- 2 tbsp cornstarch
- 2 tbsp arrowroot flour
- Ener-G Egg Replacer
I’ll add more as I come across them, and if you know of one that’s not on the list, please leave a comment!
