Frequently Asked Questions
One of the ingredients that you can use instead of Eggs to make this mouth-watering tea cake is Greek Yogurt.
It makes the cake moist and gives it a nice texture.
But if you are looking for a Vegan option, then you must give Flax Seeds a try as the substitute for Eggs.
Grind the flax seeds and make a coarse powder.
Although I must say that lighter cakes such as sponge cake, or lighter colored cookies get a grainy texture and look spotty with the color of flaxseeds.
If your recipe demands for 1 egg, then measure 1 tablespoon of flax meal with 3 tablespoons of water.
Stir well and let the mixture rest for about 15 minutes.
Resting it for 15 minutes will help the flax meal mixture develop a gelatinous consistency exactly like eggs.
After 15 minutes you can use the flax seeds mixture according to your recipe.
If you are looking for a Gluten-Free option, then you can use a Gluten-Free Flour as a substitute.
