Baking without egg can be used by everyone! Whether you’re vegan, gluten free, have other dietary requirements or just want to be healthier there are always great baking substitutes you can use! Everyone loves freshly baked goods and it can be difficult for some people to have the same great treats as everyone else if they don’t eat certain ingredients. When we make cakes for certain friends and family the main ingredient that we are asked not to include is eggs. Therefor we still had to try and keep the flavour and texture of our great bakes but replace the eggs with other alternatives.
Although eggs are very versatile to everyday cooking and baking, they also make cakes moist and are a natural raising agent in baking. However if you don’t eat eggs you can still make baked goods which taste just as great without them.
The ingredients that we have tried and tested and have found to be the top ingredients that we prefer are:
1/2 mashed banana- this works perfect when you’re making bakes such as brownies to still keep that chewy texture!
3tbsp peanut butter- this works perfectly when you still want the protein in bakes!
(These equal to 1 egg).
However there’s still many more suggestions and they can be found on our other website for great substitutes. Our website Just Sub it is great if you’re vegan, gluten free or have any other dietary requirements as there are many ingredients you can substitute so you can still make your favourite bakes! We love to experiment with ingredients and think that it’s important to always expand your baking knowledge by learning about new ingredients and techniques.
So give these a go when baking and you will see how great it is to experiment and use different ingredients. Even if you do eat eggs you can still try these methods as they will add an extra flavour kick to your bakes and they can also be healthier!
