Baking Substitutes

Eggs
If a recipe calls for only one egg, it can usually be omitted – just add a little extra liquid to the batter. Other baked goods can be made by substituting each egg with one of the following:
Vegan cupcake

  • 1 1⁄2 tsp Ener-G Egg Replacer + 2 T water
  • 1 T vinegar + 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1⁄4 C unsweetened applesauce, mashed banana, soy yogurt, or blended silken tofu
  • 2 T cornstarch + 2 T water
  • 1 T ground flaxseeds + 3 T warm water
