 Picking the Right Replacement 
When picking which egg replacer to use for your recipe it is important to remember how it will effectthe final flavor of the product. Here are some simpletips and tricks to remember:Fruit replacers are good choices for sweet bakedgoods, although mashed banana might be toodistinct for something like sugar cookies.When using a fruit puree as a substitute, add anextra 1/2 tsp of baking powder to keep your itemfrom becoming too heavy or dense.When using a seed or nut butter, try tahini or almond butter. Both have a milder flavor than other nut butters. These as well as replacers like tomatopaste are often more suited to savory items. Usethem as binders for burgers or dinner loaves.If you use a strongly flavored replacer make sureyour recipe also includes an extract or other flavoring that will tone down any flavor of thereplacer. Adding too much soda can cause your recipe totaste bitter, consider using baking powder or limitingthe use of Soda to 1 tsp per 2 cups of flour whenbaking.Tofu is best for recipes with a creamy or egg-yconsistency. It is a great substitute for custards,cheesecakes, puddings, and quiche, but it isalso great for fudgey brownies andpound cakes. All of these substitutes can be addedwhen you would add eggs to a recipe.
