The box says that it works best with homemade stuff, but most of the time I'm too lazy to do brownies or cake from scratch.



I tried it in a brownie mix last night, and the end result wasn't pretty. Tasty, but not pretty. (They didn't rise, which caused a lot of the oil to go to the top, and....well...they deep fried themselves.)



Does anyone know what box brands (U.S.) work best with the stuff?

Not exactly an answer to your question but here's a tip for future use with any egg replacer. Use a whisk and aerate the dry ingredients first really well. It helps to add a lightness to your batter and subsequent baked goods.

Not what you are asking but there are great vegan brownie recipes that don't call for egg re-placer products. Next time you have the time to make brownies from scratch you may want to give this a try: http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=6640.0

I find pureed fruit is the best egg replacer in baked goods, bananas are my favorite in brownies. Applesauce is a good one, you won't taste it at all. Pureed silken tofu also works really well, or soy yogurt... Anyway, yeah, I love to get a good chocolatey brownie mix and mash up a banana in it. Mmm instant heaven.

Same here. I always use mashed bananas as egg replacers for most baked goods especially brownies. Canned pumpkin also works well with cake mixes.

I don't know what brands will work the best but I think I read somewhere that if you're using egg replacer you have to increase the liquid in your recipe, so maybe you could try that next time?

Yeah, for some reason, Ener-G doesn't work with the boxed stuff. Works great in bread though. Sorry, can't help you. I wonder if flax would work.

Thank you for posting this link, Mr. Falafel. What a strange recipe, with that (ummm, gross) glue making step. But it smells so good! I can't wait to try them. I have a day off and a chocoholic on the way over to help me eat them.

I use applesauce in my brownies. But I've successfully used egg-replacer in recipes that normally call for egg and it works well. Its important to mix it up real well and let it sit for minute... its what I do anyway.
