When I announced the Egg Replacement Event – Silken Tofu, I was not sure how the response would be. Now after receiving 12 entries and a lot more feedback I’m very glad that I’m conducting this silken tofu event. Seeing so many entries from other food bloggers also motivated me to try more recipes using silken tofu. In the course of the journey I did stumble a lot, but at the end it’s all worth it. Our blogger friends have whipped up so many dishes using tofu. Frittatas, quiche, cakes and cookies. What’s more amazing is, for most of them it’s the first time they are using silken tofu. Thank you very much friends for taking the time and interest in trying something new. I really appreciate your efforts.
This page specifically describes how to use silken tofu as an egg substitute in various baking recipes. Check out other possible egg substitute ingredients, quantity, and best suitable baking recipes here.

Jai surprised Bee with this Vegan Chocolate Rum Cake on a Valentine’s Day. I can hear what you are thinking, “what’s the big deal with a chocolate cake?” In that case read the recipe once more. Yes, you read it right, it does not have oil or butter. In their words, “it’s almost fat free vegan decadence”.
This was my first experiment with silken tofu as an egg substitute and I was so thrilled that it came out very well. Moreover I baked this eggless chocolate cake for my son’s birthday and it was the first time I baked a cake for his birthday, so it was even more special to me. This one is a keeper.
The only thing I wish I had done was, baking the pound cake for another 5-8 minutes. The pound cake tasted very good in both the ends, but the centre was not cooked completely. Otherwise, the cake was very soft, with the right amount of sweetness and a hint of vanilla.
This recipe made me shout “Eureka, Eureka! I have found the perfect recipe for an eggless chewy chocolate chip cookie.” Even though these cookies are not made from scratch, I’m sure that nobody will notice it. Also it’s loaded with raisins and quick cooking oats, making it a healthy indulgence as well.
Sandhya has baked a tangy dessert using silken tofu. She has also observed that using tofu leaves the end product moist and soggy. But she does agree that using tofu as an egg substitute is a boon for people who don’t eat eggs.
