If I have an egg allergy, what egg substitute can I use when baking?

If you have an egg allergy, you can use the following substitutions for eggs when baking:
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder + 1 tablespoon liquid + 1 tablespoon vinegar = 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon yeast dissolved in ¼ cup warm water = 1 egg
  • 1½ tablespoons water + 1½ tablespoons oil + 1 teaspoon baking powder = 1 egg
  • 1 pack plain gelatin + 2 tablespoons warm water (don't mix until ready to use) = 1 egg
These substitutions work well when baking from scratch in recipes that call for 1 to 3 eggs.
