List of egg substitutes and how to use them 

  1. I have been using ground flaxseed as egg substitute in baking and it comes out very well. To use this 1 egg ~= 1tbsp flaxseed powder + 3 tbsp water. Blend in the food processor for 2 mins. It will become viscous. I have made cake, naan, carrot cake, cookies and zucchini bread amongst other things – Beeamma
  2. I have used apple sauce (1/2 cup) or 1 banana as an egg substitute in many of my cakes, pan cakes and muffin recipes. It works great for me. Have also tried 1 heaped tbsp of soy powder mixed with water in place of an egg – pav_3
  3. I use EnerG brand Egg Replacer available in Sprouts market. It is basically potato starch and tapioca flour and I have baked banana bread and cakes – sundarusha
  4. I have used vinegar mixed with baking soda for eggless recipes. 1 egg=1 tbsp vinegar (preferably apple cider to avoid the harsh smell) and 1/2 tsp soda mixed together. – aarthi7
  5. I substitute 1 medium banana and 2 tbsp yogurt and froth them together, use it in the place of 1 egg. – advitha 
  6. Silken Tofu and Yogurt are other egg substitutes that can be used in baking recipes.
