Full Answer

Eggs are added to baked goods to add moisture, to bind ingredients together or to act as a leavening or rising agent. Jiffy's packaged corn muffin mix already includes baking powder for leavening, so adding egg to the mix serves only to help bind the dough and ensure a moist, cake-like texture after baking.

Applesauce and mashed banana are often used as egg substitutes in baking; however, almost any puréed fruit can yield similar results. Mash half a medium banana or use one-fourth cup of applesauce or puréed fruit for each egg being replaced. Puréed vegetables such as sweet potatoes and pumpkins also can substitute for eggs. Use one-fourth cup of the puréed vegetable to replace each egg.

To use flax seed, mix 1 tablespoon of ground flax seed with 3 tablespoons of warm water. Let the mixture sit for about 3 minutes before adding to the cornbread mix. To use gelatin, first create a gelatin mix by dissolving 2 teaspoons of unflavored gelatin in 1 cup of boiling water. Use 3 1/2 tablespoons of the gelatin mix to replace each egg.
