Question by missie: Can I use plain yogurt or applesauce in place of the eggs in recipes?
Like in brownie or cake recipes? And how much applesauce or yogurt to replace each egg?

Best answer:

Answer by Brittany P
No. Eggs act as a binder and a leavener and yogurt and applesauce will do neither. They are used to replace some or all of the fat (like oil or butter) in baking recipes.

    Yes! You can use applesauce,

    Use 1/4 cup applesauce as an egg replacer in baked goods such as muffins, pancakes or yeast-free quick breads, such as pumpkin bread, and of course, banana bread! Bananas or applesauce add the perfect amount of thick moisture, like eggs, but they won’t help your dishes rise or turn out light and fluffy, so be sure the recipe you are using includes a bit of baking powder or baking soda to help it rise if needed.

    Here are some other options,
    2 tbsp corn starch = 1 egg
    2 tbsp arrowroot flour = 1 egg
    2 tbsp potato starch = 1 egg
    1 heaping tbsp soy powder + 2 tbsp water = 1 egg
    1 tbsp soy milk powder + 1 tbsp cornstarch + 2 tbsp water = 1 egg.
    1 banana = 1 egg in cakes.

    you can use applesauce to replace the oil(just use the same amount as you would the oil) but you should use eggbeaters or something similar to replace the eggs
