New baker questions about substituting??

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

When substituting in a cupcake recipe with flavored creamers, oils, etc. what liquids should you/ should you not replace? Is it safe to replace eggs, what is there purpose? Can oil be replaced with creamer or is that a no? New baker, don't really know how to create my own recipes yet! :oops:

What's your recipe and what are you looking to add in?  You definitely shouldn't replace your eggs; they work as a "binder" and help keep everything together.

In many recipes you can easily replace eggs as long as you substitute another binding agent (tofu, flaxseed, etc.), here are several resources that can help you:

In general searching for "replace X with Y baking" should provide useful results.

My main recipe uses eggs as a binder, and also has oil. So is it best to replace some of the oil with flavored oil? And when should creamers replace something

Yes! The WASC recipe is much easier to substitute

I never use coffee creamer in my cakes - so I have no idea about them. I bake from scratch. 

 

I wouldn't replace your oil. Oil adds flavor and keeps your cakes from drying out. If using LorAnn flavoring oils, you don't need to replace anything. Just add them to your cake batter. Keep in mind a little goes a long way. You'll have to use a dropper to put the oil in, mix it, then taste the batter to see if it's a strong enough flavor. 

 

You have to be careful subbing eggs for other things. Definitely do a google search. I do have an eggless vanilla cake recipe I use a lot, but I follow the recipe. I don't really experiment unless I know what I'm doing! :)
