WHAT TO USE INSTEAD OF EGGS WHEN BAKING
Eggs can provide baked goods with the moisture, structure and leavening they need to become mouthwatering confections, but a handful of egg substitutes can achieve similar results when eggs aren't an option.
Pay close attention to your recipe to determine how eggs contribute to the final product. If the recipe lacks liquid ingredients, eggs are likely intended to add moisture. Recipes without leavening agents like baking soda or baking powder may rely on eggs to rise, and those without much flour, nuts or breadcrumbs probably use eggs to help bind ingredients.
As you consider which egg substitute is best for your recipe, keep in mind that egg-heavy recipes requiring 3 or more eggs per batch may not turn out as intended when using egg substitutes. See the list of 11 egg substitutes below to find the right one for the recipe you’re whipping up.
