Baking Hacks
About to start baking and realize that you have no eggs, cake flour or heavy cream. Here are some easy hacks.
Heavy cream
Simply melt butter (vegan if desired) in 15 second increments in the microwave until melted. Combine this with 3/4 cup room temperature plant-based milk in a high speed blender for 5 minutes. You'll end up with a cup of creamy homemade heavy cream.
Like the heavy cream, you only need 2 ingredients. Add 1 cup of flour (AP or GF) to a bowl. Remove 2 tbsp of flour. Add in 2 tbsp cornstarch and whisk together for 1 cup of cake flour.
Egg substitutes
This is also an easy 2 ingredient sub. Add 1 tbsp flaxseed meal to a bowl along with 3 tbsp warm water. Let it sit for 5 minutes and add in place of an egg to most bakes. I always have flaxseed meal on hand so I never worry about running out of "eggs." For other egg subs, check out my blog article on Egg Substitutes.
