Tips

Egg Allergy - Flax seed meal eggs

Egg Allergy - Flax seed meal eggs

My son is allergic to eggs and we have found that flax seed meal can be used as a substitute. One egg equals 1 tablespoon flax meal plus 3 tablespoons water. It is best to grind the flax seed right before you plan to use it. Mix the flax seed meal with the water and then refrigerate for 15 minutes to let it set. Then use in the recipe. You can use the ratio to make as many "flax eggs" as you will need.

The size of your cake mixes is smaller now. They were 16.5 now they are 15.25. Any recipe that anyone has used over the years now comes out different. We have used Duncan Hines for a long time. It is too bad they changed it. I will have to change to a different brand.
