Just back after two days here as my computer had gone off. I used this time to browse through tv channels that are countless in number. I used to watch not more than a couple of programmes and some news channels. But the channels that I looked at were quite fascinating specially the food channels. I am a foodie as some of you know. There was this food channel where this guy was busy with cake making without eggs. I like eggs but was curious to know how he could get that effect without eggs. I saw him using an egg replacer. I quickly searched the Net and boy or boy there are countless Egg Replacers.

I want cake made by others. I don't have to know anything or do anything dirty and laborious. Evil Grin.

Yes there are many egg replacements on the market today, I am not sure all of them are very good for you though

@allknowing No, I don't use them, I tried some for my dad once but he didn't like them. If I am baking sometimes I will just use the egg whites in the recipes

I love watching Food videos, I spend hours watching them. For cakes applesauce and mashed bananas are often used as eggs replacer. I like eggs, but I check, just in case I should miss some ingredients.

@allknowing There are many ingredients that we can use as substitutions, almond flour instead of regular floor, oil instead of butter, the final result is not exactly the same.

@LadyDuck It may not be the same but different and yet tasty.

I have never used eggs replacers. Are they as nutritious as real eggs?

They all have their respective health properties but I doubt if they compared with eggs

@allknowing Real eggs are not expensive, so I won't find a substitute.

@caopaopao People go for substitutes because either they do not like eggs or they are allergic to them

@allknowing It has eggs in it, plus the cake turns out very moist, which is delicious.

@AmbiePam One of my friends had recommended jam to me for moistness and it did work.

But I am sure cakes with eggs are much more delicious than those with egg replacers. Besides, eggs are much more nutritious.

I think it is for those who are allergic or not advised to eat eggs. Vegetarians would prefer this
