Hello...I had bought some by mistake...they were called Toffutti so I
thought they would be non dairy, but were not. Finally I decided as I
already had them to use them. Terrible. I used them in my regular
ff brownie recipe in place of the EnergEgg replacer I usually use
and the brownies were similar to the texture of play dough. Just
awful. Nobody would eat them.
Someone had asked about applesauce as a replacement for fat. I use
applesauce that I can myself for this. I run it through the food mill
so it is not chunky. In just the last 3 days I made 2 batches of
banana bread, cornbread, and coffeecake, using applesauce to replace
the shortening (measure for measure) and EnergEgg replacer to
replace the eggs. All just fine. Which is why I had to make the
second batch of banana bread a day later.
I do not use special recipes...these were all from an old cookbook,
Better Homes... with the red and white plaid cover. I just use the
correct amount of egg replacer for the number of listed eggs, and
sub the applesauce for oil. I highly recommend the EnergEgg
replacer if you have not tried it. I would have used 14 eggs
between these bakings these last days if I had followed the
The only thing I have not figured out yet is a good substitute for the
struesel topping...you know, the crumbled butter, flour, nuts, sugar
etc. So I usually end up putting a regular topping on for the family
when I make a struesel coffee cake.
