Ok I'm making pumpkin spice cake and it asks for 3 eggs. I'm in the middle of it and realized that I have just 2 eggs instead of 3
What should I do? Any substitutes?
Appreciate any kind of help.
Oops, can't think of anything?
you can sub some mayo for an egg or some oil but it's only one egg it mighten be that bad?
Never mind...I have gone ahead with just 2 eggs ! Will be curious to see how it turned out
If anybody had any ideas on this please do share
I know by now you have found out there will be no problem with the cake.
For more than 20 yrs I have baked all my cakes using BC mixes and only 2 eggs - and no oil. They are yummmmy
I myself have been in this predicament a few times. I find if its missing just one egg, I put a bit more oil in it and it comes out okay...HTH
I know this is almost unheard of anymore, but did you consider knocking on your neighbor's door and asking them to borrow an egg?
No one does that anymore. I remember being a kid, and we lived in a pretty rural area, and our neighbors would always borrow a cup of sugar, or a gas can, or your lawn mower, etc.
I like the the eggs at my neighbors house better, she has her own chicken farm, which I will admit can be kind of annoying, but the fresh eggs! OMG I nnever knew that eggs had flavor before! You can definitely taste a difference when I use her eggs vs. supermarket eggs.
Jayde, good reply. I also had to knock on the door for whatever, but luckily we know the neighbours well and so we help each other. But it only works for the milk, sugar and eggs types of things> if I run out of icing sugar or baking ingredients, she probably won't have and that is only when she is still awake by the time I bake> I work late at night and she goes to bed very early.
I forgot about the mayonaise. I have baked a cake with only mayonaise and it came out yummy. But what would the quantity be.
