Ran Out of Eggs? You Can Still Bake That Cake! Use One of These Substitutes You Probably Already Have.

Raise your hand if right in the middle of baking a cake, you’ve realized you’re missing an important ingredient. Now keep your hand raised if that ingredient was eggs. Whether it’s because they got eaten at breakfast or for other mysterious reasons, it seems like we run out of eggs far more frequently than a prepared baker should. Luckily, there’s a solution far better than leaving your kitchen in a mess and running to the store: egg substitutes! Whether you need them because you ran out or because of a food allergy, your cakes – as well as your cookies and brownies – can still be delicious without any eggs at all. Gemma’s Bigger Bolder Baking shows us the smart substitutions.
