Find yourself looking to save in whatever areas you can and still have good food to eat? I tell ya, this is the latest and greatest in my book. Gayle posted about this over on her blog, and I knew I had to try it.
In cooking and baking, use 1 heaping Tbsp. of Soy Flour and 1 Tbsp. of water in place of 1 egg!!
(I'm sure you have to use your judgement for which recipes you can use it in - I wouldn't want to make an omelet with this stuff!)
The best part is that is it SO much cheaper than eggs. I bought a box of Soy Flour from Walmart (it was the only kind they had) for $1.23. It has approx. 23 quarter cups of flour in the box.
4 (Tbsp. per 1/4 cup) x 20 (1/4 cups) = 80 Tbsp!! (I multiplied by 20 to allow for the "heaping" part.)
$1.23 (for the box of Soy Flour) / 80 (Tbsp.) = $.01 per "egg"!!
Is it really cheaper and worth it? You tell me...
1 Dozen eggs: $1.63 / 12 = $.13 an egg.
Now, how do you use the stuff in baking? Ha ha, don't make the mistake I did the first time I used it, and mix the water and flour together - it made a thick, boogery paste that didn't mix into the other ingredients well!! Instead, add the water with the wet ingredients, and the soy flour with the dry ingredients, or however your recipe works.
I've used this in two recipes so far, and they have both turned out great, (ha ha!! not to mention that they were both new recipes so I wouldn't know what they are like with real eggs anyway, but hey, they didn't flop, and tasted just fine!)
Now if I could just use up my store-bought laundry detergent so I can try the homemade...
