How to Make a Fake Egg Baking Substitute

My mother is a great source of interesting little tidbits. I’m flipping through my cooking journal today and noticed an entry for how to make a fake egg. We’ve all had that “oh, crap” moment when we realize we’re out of the star ingredient.

I must warn you that I haven’t tried this, but it seems logical that it would work.

Fake Egg Substitute

1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoons water

Combine ingredients and mix together with a fork or whisk until foamy. Use in your recipe in place of an egg. Common sense should tell us all that we shouldn’t attempt an omelet using this recipe :-) However, it might do in a pinch when making cookies or cakes.

  1. It works beautifully when you are making cookies or a cake from mix. It doesn’t work so well for brownies.
