    Charishma_Ramchandani's Note:

    This easy egg substitute was submitted by Muazzama Mushtaq Ali Petkar in this week's "Household Tips" column of the Thursday magazine. It seemed really interesting and I can't wait to try it. If you do try it before me, let me know how it works!

      I was in the middle of making cupcakes, when I realized I was out of eggs. I did a recipezaar search for an egg substitute and this recipe came up. I did not have custard powder, so I did a google search for substitutes for it. I found you could substitute vanilla instant pudding mix for the custard powder, so I used this recipe with the instant pudding mix and the milk. The recipe called for 3 eggs, and the mix was still a little dry after adding the pudding mixture, so I added 4 oz of applesauce. Although I had never made this particular cupcake recipe before, everything seemed to turn out fine. So, thanks for sharing this!

      I used this for Banana-Oatmeal Bread and it worked well. The recipe calls for one egg and two egg-whites, but I usually use two whole eggs, so I subbed 2 T milk and 2 T custard powder. I did have to add a little more milk later because the batter seemed drier than usual, but it was less than a tablespoon. I was quite pleased with the result, but I'm not sure it'll work for every recipe. I read somewhere that a banana can also be used as a substitute for an egg, so maybe the bananas that were already in the recipe made up for what the milk and custard powder were missing... If you're out of eggs and the occasion is not a visit from you mother in law :) it's definitely worth a try.

      I only had one egg left and I needed 2 so I looked for the easiest sub. This recipe popped up. It took 3 1/2 tablespoons milk plus the custard powder to equal the measurment of 1 egg, just under 1/4 cup. The colour is nice and the recipe turned out fine so I guess it served it's pupose. Thanks for posting.
