I run out of eggs all the time. Really. You’d think I’d remember to get more, but I don’t. Today, while about to make dessert (my parents are coming over for supper, so I have to have dessert) I realized I was out of eggs. What to do…?!
Google. I love Google. Have I mentioned that yet?
Tip Nut had a great list of substitutes. Who knew there were so many? I went with the first one, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 1/2 tablespoons of water, and 1 1/2 tablespoons of oil.
This is what the mixture looked like:
It’s alive! It seriously bubbled. Like, baking soda and vinegar bubbled. So, of course, I then had to Google “baking powder and oil interact” to see why. The only answer I found was from eHow. The sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) and acid in the baking powder interact with liquids, causing bubbles that help foods to rise.
Not as cool of an answer as I thought.
Anyway, next time you don’t have any eggs, try out an egg substitute from Tip Nut. Let me know which one you try, what you used it for, and how well it worked!
