Baking Without Eggs
Sometimes we find ourselves without eggs, but we want to bake something with eggs.
So what should we do?
Substitute, of course.
Currently there is a major recall of eggs due to potential salmonella contamination. People have been getting sick.
So, if you are like me, you can't use the eggs you have.
I am not sure I can even buy eggs, at this time.
So, if you want to bake, you have 2 options.
Find a recipe without eggs.
Or, substitute other ingredients for your egg or eggs in the recipe.
You can buy egg product, which comes from egg whites.
Or you can make your own egg substitution.
For each egg that you need, use:
2 Tablespoons liquid
2 Tablespoons flour
1/2 Tablespoon shortening
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
You can also use:
1 teaspoon cornstarch
add an additional 3 Tablespoons liquid to your recipe.
But, the first substitution is the better option.
