Substitute for Eggs in baking

  • Substitute for Eggs in baking:

    Applesauce - use 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce in place of one egg in most baking recipes. Some sources say to mix it with 1/2 teaspoon baking powder. If all you have is sweetened applesauce, then adjust the amount of sugar in the recipe.

    Banana - use 1/4 cup mashed banana (approx. 1/2 banana) instead of one egg when baking. This may have a mild banana flavor to whatever you are cooking.

    Vegetable Oil - typically 1/4 cup vegetable oil can be substituted for one egg when baking. If you are short more than one egg, you will want to try another method as any more vegetable oil may make the recipe too greasy.

    Water, Oil, Baking Powder - whisk together two tablespoons water, one teaspoon oil and two teaspoons baking powder. Use this in place of 1 egg. When used in cookies and other baked goods, it works so well no one would ever know!
