Ready to make something and find out you are out of eggs short of eggs, here is what you can substitute for eggs in a recipe. What you can use in place of an egg in recipes.
Sunday morning my hubby was in the kitchen making breakfast when he realized he only had one egg and not the two that he needed to make a batch of pancakes for our herd. I said never fear I will find out what we can substitute for it. We used the first option of egg substitutes.
The egg free choice we tried worked great and our homemade pancake recipe was delicious.
For One Egg:
1 1/2 tablespoon of water
1 1/2 tablespoon of oil
1 teaspoon of baking powder
Here are other options to use as egg substitutes:
- 1 teaspoon yeast mixed in 1/4 cup of water
- 1/2 mashed banana
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
Our pancakes were wonderful. I could taste no difference but it did have the one real egg in it and one substitute. BUT if you are ever baking and find you are short an egg, now you know you have options for an egg substitute. Now if my girls would just get laying and I have eggs in the backyard, that would be perfect.
