November 2012 – BAKING SUBSTITUTION
If recipe calls for one whole egg then use 2 or 3 egg whites or 1/4 cup egg substitute. Before making any substitutions it is important to understand the function of eggs in baked goods. They add flavor and color and contribute to structure, incorporate air when beaten, provide liquid, fat and protein and emulsify fat with liquid ingredients. Reducing or omitting egg yolk can result in less tenderness. Cakes made without the emulsifying action from egg yolk may not have a uniform flavor and texture.
