Baking with Just Egg is Easy!

Baking with Just Egg is incredibly easy. I use Just Egg liquid for vegan cookies and cakes, plant-based muffins, and even a lot of gluten-free breads. It works by adding both fat and structure which is what actual eggs are used for in baking. 

Versatile Egg Substitute

Just Egg is so versatile. It can be substituted in baking when regular eggs are called for with just a few notable exceptions. One is popovers, which, at least so far in my experience, require more lift than Just Egg can provide.

Did you know Just Egg can also be microwaved?!

Yes! You Can Bake with Just Egg! Here’s How!

What’s so great about using Just Egg in baking is, in many cases, it’s just a matter of simple substitution … The general rule of thumb is that about three tablespoons of Just Egg are equivalent to one large-ish egg. What I’ve found works really well in most recipes is that for each large egg called for in a recipe to simply use 1/4 cup of Just Egg liquid instead. So easy. 

  • 1/4 cup Just Egg = 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup Just Egg = 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup Just Egg = 3 large eggs and so on

Just Egg Is Like “Real” Eggs Made with Mung Beans

Just Egg products are made primarily with mung beans. Mung beans have a lot of protein as they are in the legume family. Mung beans are also starchy and another ingredient is tapioca, which is also starchy. The combination of the two characteristics makes Just Egg the perfect consistency to use in recipes when creating light and moist baked goods. It also means that Just Egg is fairly healthy.

The Perfect Texture for Baking

When cooked, Just Egg has that kind of stretchy and kind of almost rubbery-ish texture of real cooked eggs. It’s actually quite delicious when simply eaten as an egg scramble but the texture also works perfectly to add needed structure to baked goods.

What Else Can I Bake with Just Egg?

Just Egg liquid is extremely versatile. In addition to making cookies, cakes, muffins, and breads, Just Egg liquid also works great as a binder when making vegan and plant-based meatloaf, meatballs, and even burgers. 

Here are a couple of recipes that use Just Egg or where the egg substitute used can be easily switched to Just Egg! I’ll be adding more soon!

I’m sorry Lisa, but unless there is a version of just egg without onion, it is not good in sweet applications. I bought just egg to use in a gluten free vanilla cake on recommendations of various websites, including this one. The batter was beautiful, so I tasted some. It tasted of onions. I then read the ingredient on th÷ just egg bottle and it contains onion.
