Description

The step by step guide to how to make a flax egg. Can replace a regular egg in vegan baking for cakes, pancakes, muffins and more!


Ingredients


Instructions

  1. Add the tablespoon of ground flaxseed to a bowl.
  2. Add 3 tablespoons of hot water from the kettle (just boiled).
  3. Allow to sit for a minute or two – using hot water makes the thickening process much faster, and it usually gets to the right (gloopy/gelatinous) consistency in only about one minute.
  4. Use it in place of an egg in recipes, it’s not an exact science, but usually 1 for 1, so 1 flax egg replaces 1 chicken egg in a recipe.
  5. Of course – it won’t work for things like vegan meringues! You definitely can’t whip it (for that you need aquafaba!)
  6. However, in cakes and quick breads and pancakes and biscuits, it works perfectly!

Notes

*Not my original recipe but a staple in vegan baking that I have adapted for my own purposes.
