Substitute for egg.....is there any?

freds69, Oct 12, 3:18am
I am wanting to make mock whitebait fritters for tea and have no eggs. Really dont want to go and buy some as we are off overseas on thursday. Is there a way to substitute the egg for something else please??Thanks heaps

I think I recently read here that golden syrup can be subbed for eggs in baking,but I wouldn't recommend that for whitebait fritters,even if they are mock.I use Orgran egg substitute when I run out of eggs but I guess you don't have that either ?

Not that Im old enough to remember but during rationing (War times)
Eggs were often replaced with a teaspoon of malt vinegar.

if you have soya flour- that will do nicely

golden syrup is fine in baking, but not whitebait fritters.

The recipe I use doesn't have an egg in it.

Grate a few potatoes add a couple of tablespoons of flour season with salt and pepper stir and fry in butter :)

What are mock whitebait fritters?

Something akin to "roesti" buzzy :)

edited to say that poster 1 is off overseas since Thursday ... so won't read your good advice any more.
