Eggless baking is a great option for those who follow a vegan diet or have allergies or dietary restrictions that exclude eggs. Here are some tips and ideas for eggless baking:

  1. Egg Replacements: There are several ingredients that can be used as substitutes for eggs in baking:
    • Unsweetened Applesauce: Replace each egg with ¼ cup of applesauce to add moisture to the recipe.
    • Mashed Bananas: Use mashed ripe bananas as an egg substitute. Generally, ½ mashed banana can replace one egg.
    • Yogurt or Buttermilk: Replace each egg with ¼ cup of plain dairy-free yogurt or dairy-free buttermilk.
    • Silken Tofu: Blend ¼ cup of silken tofu until smooth and use it to replace one egg.
    • Ground Flaxseeds or Chia Seeds: Mix 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseeds or chia seeds with 3 tablespoons of water and let it sit for a few minutes until it thickens. This mixture can replace one egg.
