Baking In The Times Of Pandemic

Love baking? Don’t let coronavirus social-distancing let you down. You can bake with ingredients and tools right from your pantry, you don’t even have to make a trip to the grocery store. Here are some of the best baking substitutions you’ll need.

If you’ve run out of egg, or are looking for a vegan substitute for egg, here are a few options:

1 egg = 1 tablespoon of ground flax seed + 3 tablespoons of water (let the mixture sit for 10 mins before you use it) / half medium-sized banana / 4 tablespoons of applesauce

If your recipe requires buttermilk and you don’t have it in your pantry, here are a few options you can try:

1 cup buttermilk = 1 cup skimmed milk + 1 tablespoon lemon juice / 1 cup skimmed milk + 1 tablespoon vinegar / 3 quarters cup of yogurt +1 quarter cup of skimmed milk.

If you’ve run out of milk, use diluted sour cream.

Baking powder
Baking powder is a very common ingredient people often run out of. Here are a few substitutions just in case:

1 teaspoon baking powder = Half teaspoon of cream of tartar + 1 quarters teaspoon of baking soda / half teaspoon of vinegar (or lemon juice) + 1 quarters teaspoon of baking soda.

Baking soda
Baking soda is an essential ingredient. And if you do not have baking soda at home, chances are you would not have the substitutes as well. To substitute 1 teaspoon of baking soda, combine 1 teaspoon of potassium bicarbonate (soda water) with one-third teaspoon of salt.

Self-raising flour
Making self-raising flour is so simple that we would suggest don’t even buy it from the store. All you need to do is take all-purpose flour (1 cup) and mix in two tablespoons of baking powder. Sift it and use it instantly.

All-purpose flour
If you are looking for more fibrous, healthier or gluten-free substitutes for all-purpose flour, here are a few options:

1 cup all-purpose flour = 3 quarters rice flour + two and a half teaspoons of baking powder

You can replace the rice flour with oat flour, coconut flour, quinoa flour, chickpea flour or almond flour.
