For all of you who love cakes but the presence of eggs deter you from savoring this delicacy, this is for you. High blood pressure or high cholesterol level in your blood might have cut off eggs from your diet. However, your love for cakes is overwhelming. And if you love to bake and eat yourself, you might be forced to relegate your cake recipe books to a secluded spot in your house. But don’t feel disappointed for the lack of cakes in your life, for there is a number of egg substitutes available that will make your cakes as fluffy and tasty as the normal cakes. Simply replace the eggs in your baking dish with any of the following easily available egg substitutes.
One tablespoon of freshly ground flax seeds mixed with three tablespoons of water makes a nice substitute for a single piece of egg.
Just see what happens when you put a quarter cup of silken tofu into the blender. The resultant creamy blended tofu produces the same texture as a single nicely bitten egg. Replace the eggs in your cakes with tofu. You will not only get a soft egg less cake but also a healthy cake.
If you don’t dislike the banana flavor for your cake, then replace the eggs in your cake with ripe bananas. One mashed big ripe banana is equivalent to one egg. If you are forced to give up eggs in your diet then try banana cakes.
Pour thick creamy milk to your cake mixture and the need for eggs will not arise. Your choice for the type of milk to work as the egg substitute is vast. You can use cow milk, soy milk, almond milk or even rice milk. Buttermilk perhaps is the best egg substitute in the milk category.
A number of culinary egg substitutes are currently popular among vegans. Ener-G Egg Replacer, Orgran No Egg, Allergy care Whole Egg Replacer are examples of some such Egg Replacer. The basic ingredients of the Egg Replacers are potato starch, tapioca flour, calcium lactate, calcium carbonate, citric acid and carbohydrate gum.
Now that you know about so many egg substitutes, baking an egg less cake will become an interesting culinary exercise for you.
