What else can be used as a substitute to an egg?

Example: If I was going to bake a cake and one of the ingredients is to use 1 egg, what can be used if I don't have any eggs?

  • if you're using a cake mix, check the box for a "low fat" version that typically omits the eggs entirely Sep 23 '15 at 23:52
  • Thanks. I could do that as well, but just in case I don't want to go the "low fat" way its good to know what else can be used in substitute. In my opinion, certain foods have a different taste when they're low fat. @KateGregory Sep 24 '15 at 0:06

    Sounds like a cooking.stackexchange.com question.

  • Common ingredient substitutions are such a common and well-documented part of cooking, they are easily referenced in any number of places, so I'm going to close this as not a hack. Technically it is, maybe; but if you feel strongly about it, bring it up in meta. Sep 24 '15 at 18:15

Finely ground flax makes an excellent binder; however, it has a nutty flavor that's best reserved for whole-grain baked goods and pancakes/Cakes(in your case).

Baking Soda and Vinegar This is a decent egg substitute for fluffier baked goods.

Hold onto your pants for this one,

BANANAS Different sources recommend anywhere from 1/2 to 1 mashed banana as a replacement for 1 egg.

    ... I'm going to go make banana chocolate chip cookies now. That sounds delicious.
