Substitute's to make a recipe low fat/sugar, gluten/dairy/soy free etc.....
I thought it would be a good idea to make a thread about substitutes.
Not only to make a recipe lowfat, dairy free etc... but for the time when you run out of someting...
I will start us of
Oil (in baking) = apple sauce
1 egg=1.5 tbls of milk + 2 tbls of custard powder
a teaspoon of vinegar in a cup of milk for soured milk (buttermilk).
coconut essence and evaporated milk for coconut milk
plain flour and 2 teaspoons of baking powder for self raising flour
3/4 cup of oil for 1 cup of melted butter
brown sugar (1 cup) - 1 cup of white sugar and 1 tablespoon of golden syrup or molasses
plain natural yoghurt for sour cream
