Do you ever put less than is called for in recipes; such as eggs?


I noticed over the years when I would be low or almost out of eggs I could use less and the recipe would turn out fine so now when I have five chickens and need to use up eggs I still will use less for health reasons. If a cake mix calls for 3 eggs I use two and if it calls for 2 I will sometimes only use one. Now I am not sure I have done this on making from scratch recipes but most cake mixes already have a rising agent in them so I think that is why it is not necessary. How about you?

    The Examiner-1's comment above, regarding health recipes, is a good one. There are some recipes that probably should not be changed.

    Very welcome; it is a way of reducing a little here and there we don't need. I cut back sugars too enough to count but not enough to hurt anything. Sweet is sweet!

    I am partially vegan but for health reasons I use honey or molasses in place of sugar.

    I have never used more so I will take your word. I am wary of too many eggs if you can believe all you read about it being heart unhealthy.

    Yes me too; well I probably would use more veggies and less meat but I do not like real spicy or hot spicy foods. Strange because I think hot sauce is just a have to on chicken nuggets before frying but I just put enough for great flavor not heat.

    A thing of necessity taught me I didn't need as much but health reasons made me keep it that way.

    Well if you know the rum cake recipe worked I would not have removed it regardless! I hate bullies! Turning the cheek is one thing but taking stuff from bullies I do not think God intended.
