  1. Applesauce - In most of the baking recipes, you can use applesauce, instead of eggs. 1/3 cups of unsweetened applesauce will be perfect. In several recipes, it is advised to use it with ½  tsp of baking powder. Applesauce is not only a great substitute of eggs, but it also adds several health benefits to the recipe. If you use sweetened version, limit the amount of sugar in the recipe.
  2. Banana - This is another egg substitute for cake. A cake has to be moist and soft. Banana is a great ingredient for that. If you don’t want to add egg into cake, replace it with a mashed ¼ Cup banana for an egg. Banana will add a bit flavor into your recipe. So, use it only if you prefer it.
  3. Flax Seed - This is popularly known as ‘flegg’. That means the combination of flax meal and water. But, you should be careful while using flax meal. Never throw some flaxseed into the batter. Make a combination of 1 tbsp of flax meal with 3 tbsp of water. This is a wonderful binding element that works well instead of eggs.
  4. Tofu - Yes, you can use tofu instead of eggs as it is a wonderful binding element. As it is flavorless, you can use it in several baking goods, like cakes, cookies and brownies. Use ¼ cup of pureed silken tofu for 1 egg. You can also bake breads with tofu.
  5. Soy Yogurt - This is the most common egg substitute for binding. Use only ¼ cup of soy yogurt instead of an egg to make the cake batter. It works similarly whiz tofu and helps you to keep the thing moist in a better way. This is also easily available and takes better care of the health as well.
