Egg Substitute Event – Vinegar Round Up

My food blogging buddies have whipped up some delicious treats using vinegar/lemon juice as an egg substitute. This time I have received an entry from a non-food blogger (Deepali) too.

Thank you everybody for making this event a success and thanks Deepali for sending the chocolate cake recipe and awesome pictures to the event.

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

    Hi Madhu!
    Was a lil skeptical to use vinegar in cake so instead tired it wit lemon juice n its come perfectly.. I substituted vinegar wit 2tsp of lemon juice. They turned out perfectly. But fr next time wil add lil more of lemon juice fr tat tangy flavour.
    Hey a question bout vinegar, we haf a huge bottle of vinegar tats seems to b few decades old. Do you think it’ll still b in good condition to use fr cakes??

    • Madhuram

      It’s better to be safe than sorry, Shraddha. So don’t consume it. There are 1000 other ways to use that up like for cleaning, sanitizing etc. Google and you will come with a lot of ideas.
