How to substitute eggs in Cakes?

CakeThe most commonly used egg alternatives for cakes will be silken tofu, yogurt, pureed fruit, vinegar (in specific recipes, strictly not for recipes that uses more than 1 egg).

Personally, I found a winning combination to substitute for eggs in cakes, which is a mix of yogurt and pureed silken tofu. It works out beautifully, especially in plain vanilla sponge cakes.

All these recipes have step-by-step procedure with pictures. Without further ado, here is the list of eggless cake and cupcake recipes that I tried and came out good.

    Why does some of the cake have vinegar and do I have to use it.

    • Madhuram

      Vinegar is used in egg free baking recipes to give the fluffy texture that eggs give. Care should be taken not to use too much vinegar because it will give an after taste. But when used in the right quantity you will get airy and light eggless cakes/cupcakes.

    what is the egg replacer powder called? I’ve been trying to find out for ages but don’t seem to be able to find out

    • Madhuram

      The brand which is pretty popular is Ener-G but there are other brands too like Bob’s Red Mill egg replacer and here in Canada we get something else too, don’t remember the name now. These are easily available in stores in the US and Canada. Not sure about other countries.

    HI Benji. lovely website. For the Vanilla Cupcakes, instead of Ener-G egg replacer power, how much butter milk can I use.

    • Madhuram

      I have got mixed reviews about that recipe already. So not sure how it will work out omitting the egg replacer powder and using butter instead of that. It would be too much fat.

  6. Nayana

    Hello madhuram ,
    Very nice website . Even we are vegetarians and eating cake was a far of thing. But having discovered your site those cravings can be taken care of. Thank you so much. A recipe for a cupcake calls for 1 large egg and 2 large egg whites. What is the best substitute in this case?

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much Nayana. I will have to see the other ingredients too but I guess 1/2 cup of yogurt or 1/4 cup of yogurt and 1/4 of pureed silken tofu should be fine.

    I follow ur site. I want to know how to replace eggs and with what in cakes. Is it specific for different cakes. Please explain me. I am always confused in this.

      Yes it depends on the recipe Jayanthi. There is no hard and fast rules. But in general, especially sponge cake types a combination of yogurt and silken tofu works out well.

    I used to love a spicy omlettes with chillies and onion but became a vegan.I have tried several egg substitutes like cornmeal, silken tofu, etc to make a good omlette like the original but have not been successful. Can
    you suggest an optimum mix of substitutes to make a good omlette?

    • Madhuram

      I here that there is something called the Vegg which is a great substitute for things like this. Since I hail from a family which never cooked eggs I haven’t tried that.

    When a recipie calls for 5 eggs can I substitute the vinegar and baking soda

    • Madhuram

      Nope. It works only when you have to replace 1 egg. I have replaced 4 eggs only so far, not more than that.
