Full Answer

Substituting applesauce for eggs in baked goods lowers the cholesterol, allows for vegan cooking and can even leave baked goods more moist than using eggs. In addition to applesauce, chefs sometimes use pureed bananas, soy yogurt, silken tofu, flax seeds or commercially-made egg substitutes as alternatives to eggs. For boxed mix cakes, it is possible to substitute a can of soda for all three eggs and the oil normally required.

    What should you do if you added too much sugar to a recipe?

    A:

    If too much sugar is added to a recipe, adding a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar tones down the sweetness. The amount of apple cider vinegar needed to tone down the sweetness will be determined by the amount of excess sugar that is added to the recipe. Continue adding apple cider vinegar to the recipe until the sweetness is at the desired taste. White distilled vinegar can be used in place of apple cider vinegar for the same effect.
