Eggless Cake and Biscuit cooking
How often have you decided to cook a cake or something and found you have no eggs? Well look no more it is quite simple.
No egg: If you run short of eggs then use 1/2 a teaspoon of bicarb with a dessertspoon of vinegar. Add this to the mixture last. (will replace 2 eggs). These recipes don’t require the vinegar though.
