    Any thoughts on using for brownie mix? Instructions generally have you mix an egg with water and oil, but our test resulted in brownies which rose around the edges of the pan, but not at all in the middle. This happened previously with another egg replacer used in brownies. Thoughts?

      Hi David,
      Thank you for your question. When the edges of your brownies rise but the middle doesn’t, this may have more to do with the type of pan you’re using or the temperature of your oven. You could try switching to a metal baking pan if you’re using glass (or vice versa), or turning the oven down 25° and baking for a slightly longer time. Eggs function as a leavener as well as a binder, so substituting for eggs may affect the rise and texture of your baked goods a bit. You could try an alternative egg replacer like mashed banana (1/4 cup per egg), Flax Eggs, or Aquafaba to see if you get the same results.

    Are there any recommended recipes for quiche with egg replacer? I’m not a born chef so could use the guidance! Thanks.

      Hi Nancy,
      Our egg replacers are meant to replace eggs in baked good recipes like muffins and cookies, and are not meant to be a replacement for eggs in dishes like quiche or scrambles. Our egg replacers help to bind ingredients together in baked goods which helps them rise and provides texture and structure. If you’re looking for an egg replacer for custards like quiche, you may want to try a product like this or follow a specific recipe for egg free or vegan quiche.

    I baked a cake with this today and the recipe called for baking powder. I tasted a bit off because of the baking soda content of the egg replacer. Do you have a suggestion for how to adjust baking powder/soda content of a recipe to prevent this from happening?

      Hi Elena,
      There is a very small amount of baking soda in our Gluten Free Egg Replacer so it should not impact the flavor unless you’re replacing a large amount of eggs. If you would like to reduce the other leavening agents in your recipe, we may suggest reducing baking powder by 1/4 teaspoon or baking soda by 1/8 teaspoon per every three eggs you’re replacing. If you are not satisfied with this product for any reason, please let us know and we can help you trouble-shoot further. You can also call us directly at 1-800-349-2173 or email us at customerservice@bobsredmill.com.
