Eggs are an essential part of a cake. Eggs are the glue that holds everything together. They provide flavour and texture. Once I started learning more tips and tricks for baking I learned that eggs must always be at room temperature before adding them to a recipe. If you forget to leave them out to get to room temperature, put them in a bowl of warm water to speed up the process. It is also recommended that they are room temperature when you make scrambled eggs or omelets. Try it out.
There are substitutes for eggs however, they are: 2 tbsp cornstarch or potato starch, 1 banana, 1 tbsp flax seed and 3 tbsp water.
didyouknow: if you crack eggs on a flat surface you will be more successful in keeping it whole and not breaking the yolk.
