When people come across our site, they are amazed by what we can do without dairy and eggs. We make beautiful cakes, pies, puddings, cookies and more all with our secret ingredient – the Baking Blend! Our baking blend is a time-tested mixture that will work as a substitute for eggs, buttermilk, yoghurt, oil, mayonnaise and more.
The Baking Blend is simply:
1 (12.3oz) package Morinaga Silken Extra Firm Tofu
1 cup water
2 Tbsp. lemon juice or white vinegar
Blend well. Refrigerate in a covered container. Keeps for one week. (1 cup baking blend is equal to 1 cup of liquid ingredients.)
The Baking Blend is our go-to for standard baking recipes such as cookies and cakes. For savory baked dishes like quiche, tarts or lasagna, we use mashed Morinaga Extra Firm Tofu. When you mash the extra firm variety it takes on a consistency similar to scrambled eggs or fresh ricotta cheese.
Whether you are making a quiche and scones for a breakfast party or key-lime pie for a summer BBQ, don’t let your dairy or gluten allergies get in the way of your enjoyment. With Morinaga’s Tips & Tricks you can stay healthy and enjoy all the flavors of summer! Happy eating!
