Eggless Baking Tip

 Eggless baking always considered difficult as a whole egg adds an important amount of moisture, fat, structure, and leavening to baked goods like cookies and cakes. Banana is considered a good option for eggless baking but there are many options for replacing egg other than bananas in cakes. Flax seeds, tofu, Mashed Banana, applesauce, vineger + baking soda, soy yogurt, commercial egg replacer are the good substituteof egg in baking.
