Announcing Egg Substitute Event – Vinegar

Vinegar ~ Egg Substitute Event

This page specifically describes how to use vinegar as an egg substitute in baking. Check out other possible egg substitute ingredients, quantity, and best suitable baking recipes here.

First I would like to thank all my blogging buddies for flooding my inbox with recipes using EnerG egg replacer powder. You all know that my husband only does the round up right! I have to give him the content and he will take care of the presentation part. Since he is extremely busy with his office work, he can work on this only on Sunday. So wait until Monday to see what wonders you can create with egg replacer powder.

This month’s egg substitute is vinegar. I read in a couple of books that 1 tablespoon of vinegar along with 1 teaspoon of baking soda can be substituted for 1 egg. Both white distilled vinegar and apple cider vinegar can be used. This combination works best in cakes, cupcakes and quick breads. I also read in few forums that 2 tablespoons of lemon juice can be used in place of the 1 tablespoon vinegar. So for this event you could use either, but I have to mention here that I have not tried the lemon juice substitution.

Also I see a lot of baking recipes with vinegar, especially in various vegan books, websites and forums. You can try those recipes also. That is, you could either take a recipe which has eggs and substitute it with vinegar or try recipes which already has vinegar in it and is eggless too.

Now for the rules of the event:

1. Bake anything from cookies, cakes, cupcakes, muffins, breads, tarts, pies, etc using vinegar/lemon juice and post about it in your blog between Feb 13th 2009 and March 14th 2009.

2. Post the recipe in your blog, with a picture and link back to this post. Also feel free to share your experiences and tips while using the substitute regardless of the outcome. This would provide the much needed insight about that particular egg substitute.

3. Since the idea behind the event is to help those who are searching for tried and tested eggless baking recipes, you can also send me the recipes which you have posted earlier in your blog using vinegar/lemon juice as an egg substitute. Reposting is not necessary, but link it to this event. That being said, I would really appreciate if you could try new recipes too and post it, because eggless recipes are never enough.

4. Also multiple entries are welcome more than ever for this event.

5. Email me your name, blog URL, name of the recipe, recipe URL, photo in 150wx120h size to ere(at)egglesscooking(dot)com with Vinegar as the subject.

6. Non bloggers are also welcome to send your recipes, tips and picture of your creation and I will include it in the round up.

    I think this is off, I tried this on sunday and my cupcakes came out tasting like shit. I think its too much baking soda. Might wanna try cutting down the teaspoon of baking soda.

    I read something similar in a grassroots mag,it works but it’s when you put it in that determines the result. I have found that by putting in the egg subsitute last works realy well, and I only use half a teaspoon of baking powder, but if the recipe you are making requires baking soda then there’s no need to put it in with the vinegar. Hope this is of some help.

      Thanks for the input Jack. It’s interesting to note that you say that vinegar is not necessary with baking soda because all the recipes I have seen so far using vinegar has baking soda in it. Let me look into this subject.

    I want to bake eggless vanilla cupcakes. I tried some with flax seed as egg replacer, but my cupcakes came out dense and gummy. Can I use vinegar and baking soda? Will it give a gd result. And also if u have a fool proof vanilla cupcake recipe pls can u let me know? Thank u.

    I tried using the vinegar + baking soda combination to replace 1 egg in a sponge recipe. The recipe already used self-raising flour and 1 teaspoon of baking powder. I think the vinegar/baking soda combo meant there was far too much in the way of raising agents because the cake rose then collapsed back onto itself in a horrible mess.

    If I ever use vinegar and baking soda again, it would be in a recipe that didn’t already contain ingredients that are themselves raising agents.

    I am using a recipe for a science experiment. I am wondering if the baking soda/vinegar recipe will work, and when I should put the baking soda in, when I would normally put eggs in, maybe? Thanks so much, I really like your website!

    • Madhuram says:

      Just mix it with the dry ingredients (like flour etc). I have heard that adding vinegar just before putting the batter in the oven is more effective but I haven’t tried it personally. I usually mix it with rest of the wet ingredients.

    I hate this I tried it on my bread it did not turn out to be so good who ever thinks this is good they have bad taste in food

    • Madhuram says:

      It depends on how much you use and in which recipe you use. Vinegar is my go to egg substitute to make cakes, cupcakes and muffins fluffy.
