if you love and care for the well-being of all animals, are looking to lower your cholesterol, and/or enjoy tasting the batter without fear of salmonella, you may want to try using egg replacers when baking. trust me, baking without eggs can be done!
vegan egg replacers:
simply whisk the following ingredients until foamy:
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 Tbsp flour
3 Tbsp water
= 1 egg
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
4 Tbsp flour
6 Tbsp water
= 2 eggs
you can find other egg replacers here:

for quick baking and making sugar cookies minus baking powder, i use Ener-G egg replacers.
sadly, cage-free eggs are not all they're cracked up to be. pastured eggs from a local farm seem to be the most humane way to obtain eggs. find local pastured eggs here!
picking our eggs up from a farm may be inconvenient and a bit more costly, but we will get healthier eggs from happier hens. it's worth it!
