Tip of the Week: Egg Replacement

For those vegetarians who also don't eat eggs, the best way to replace eggs in home made cake recipes is to use soya flour (available in most health shops). Use a teaspoon of soya flour per egg and add 2 tablespoons of milk per egg. It also helps to add a little extra baking powder to make the cakes lighter.

This works for recipes with 1-2 eggs and is ideal for fairy cakes but I don't think it would work for something like a gateau using 6 eggs!

I will soon be posting my favourite eggless cake recipes including a lovely carrot cake :)
