I was going to make a cake and realized I only had 1 egg and I needed 3. I didn't want to go back to the store, so I ended here and it worked great. Thanks. The cake came out great.

  1. Some recipes call for cornstarch paste as the thickening agent without specifying the exact proportions of cornstarch and water.
  2. This recipe is offered as an approximate guide until you find what works best for you.
  3. Some cooks prefer the thin paste, some prefer thick.
  4. Thoroughly mix together cornstarch and cold water.
  5. Always stir mixture again just before using because the starch settles.
