Quick Tip: Egg Substitute
Have you ever begun to bake something, only to realize you're OUT of eggs?
Did you know there's an easy solution to replace the egg (or two) withOUT running to the store?
Thankfully, I learned this handy dandy "egg substitution" that has saved us in a pinch on more than one occasion.
1 egg = 1 tablespoon of cornstarch and 3 tablespoons of water
That's it! Replace the missing egg with the cornstarch and water and bake as directed. You'll never know the difference. It's also perfect for families with egg allergies. We once made a huge batch of pancakes for a friend with an egg allergy, where we had to substitute 3-4 eggs. They were delicious! We now refer to those special pancakes as "Dancakes". :)
