Egg Replacers: As Leavening Agents

The following instrutions are the amount for the substitution of 1 egg for leavening
(see other "recipes" for eggs as binders and for moisture)

Egg-Replacer by Ener-G isa potato starch and tapoica flour based egg-replacer good for rising.

1 1/2 teaspoons Egg Replacer powder mixed in 2 tablespoons water.  Special Diet Solutions suggestions 2-3 times as much powder for best results.  For added lightness, whikp in food processoror blender for 30 seconds.

Baking soda and Vinegar

1 1/2 TBL water
1 1/2 TBL oil
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp vinegar (optional, for more rising-power)

Whisk above ingredients together in a cup and pour into mixture that calls for an egg.

Note: this only works as a substitute in baking items like cakes, muffins, etc.- things that need to rise.
It gives the chemical components needed for rising, but no flavor whatsoever. It would not work in a cheesecake because you need the egg yolk/flavor for that.
