I’ve got a trick up my sleeve…

You are going to L-O-V-E this! I am amazed at this little trick! Someone left me a comment about this trick and just in case you haven’t heard about this absolutely genius trick, I’m going to let you in on it. Until I made these, I have had the worst time coming up with a good cupcake recipe. Every substitute for egg that I’ve used in cupcakes has left me wanting a more consistent, less falling-apart-in-the-middle kind of cupcake. Well, I’m here to declare that I have found it. Take your favorite boxed cake mix {read the label to make sure it doesn’t contain your specific allergens} pour into a mixing bowl. Add 12 oz of Sprite¬†(1 can)¬†or similar {I used Publix brand}. Mix well. Fill cupcake liners 1/2 full. Bake according to directions on box. That’s it! Isn’t that crazy simple??

Go try it for yourself! It’s absolutely amazing. And easy as pie…only it’s a cupcake.

I’m gonna let you in on a little secret…

I’ve been using Ener-G Egg Replacer in baked goods for 4 years and am so glad to have it. I have always used it according to package directions which is 1 1/2 tsp of powder + 2 T warm water substitued for each egg in the recipe. While it works and gets the job done, I have always just settled for ‘okay’ baked products. For example, cupcakes (which I make often and freeze to save for birthday parties, etc.) were yummy the first day, but became crumbly by the next day. Not to mention, the icing never went on well. However, yesterday I was making cupcakes again and because I just got home from vacation and my brain seems to still be on vacation, I used 1 1/2 TBSP of powder vs. 1 1/2 tsp. Let’s just say that was the best mistake I’ve ever made! It made the cupcakes super fluffy and moist! They are hands down THE most delicious cupcakes I’ve made in 4 years. I’ll definitely be using more than the recommended amount of Ener-G Egg Replacer from now on in every baked product. I think I’ll go eat a cupcake.
