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!
