Last week, I was about to make a cake when I realized that I didn't have any eggs in the house. There was too much on my "to do" list to add a grocery run, so it was time to adapt.
A friend of mine suggested substituting applesauce for oil in a cake or brownie mix (1:1 ratio, in case you're interested in trying it), but I didn't want to go substitute crazy. So I looked up some substitutions for eggs, and here's what I found.
Start with a box cake mix (because when they're on sale as cheap as what we found, it's not worth making it from scratch). Add the amount of oil called for on the box. Instead of adding water and eggs, add one can of soda. If it's chocolate cake, you can use a dark cola. If it is lemon cake, try lemon-lime soda.
I wasn't sure if it would be possible to overmix and make it not rise properly, so I only mixed it until it was all combined. Pour into a greased cake pan and bake for about 5 minutes longer than recommended on the box.
It's a much more moist cake, but it was the most evenly baked cake I've ever seen come out of my oven!
Ummm...forgot a before picture. We were hungry.
