Emergency egg substitute.

This comes from my betty crocker cookbook.This handy little tip has saved me more than once(NOT).Two egg yolks and 1 tablespoon of water will replace one whole egg.I have run out of eggs a few times and just could'nt make this work.

Reading the thread title I thought that I will now know something about a egg substitute,
that will be really helpful.

Here's a page on egg substitutes in baking. The function of the egg (binder, rising agent, texture, etc) varies depending on the recipe: Vegan Baking :: The Post Punk Kitchen tells you how

As an example, I use applesauce in place of eggs in pancakes. They add a little sweetness to the pancake. Other than that, they actually do a good job of giving the pancakes the soft texture usually imparted to them by the eggs.

I think I read 1 Tbs of water and 1 tsp of veg oil (something neutral) works for batters. I guess the water replaces the white and the oil replaces the yolk. hmm.

Another egg replacer that works surprisingly well in baked goods is mixing 1 Tb ground flax + 3 Tb water. I heat it in a small skillet on medium just until it becomes eggy.

It might work with other nuts (e.g., almonds) but I haven't tried it.
