I know what you are thinking - and before you turn your nose up and walk away - you tell me "Have you ever started OR wanted to start to bake something, only to realize that you have everything but the EGGS?!#?"
Well...look no further than your own pantry :) I've had these cans of powdered perfection sitting on the shelf for awhile (along with all my other unused food storage) and decided I'd better get to using it or at least learning how to use it.
Now I have to preface - I have only used these in baked items where it would be impossible to detect (so far cakes, rolls and bread). NO-we don't eat scrambled eggs with them. Yes...I have baked them in items and given them to unsuspecting neighbors and friends :) he he...
Don't freak...I haven't done anything wrong...just experimented a little and I haven't heard any complaints - at least none to my face-(except from my husband, but his had to do with frosting which didn't contain any eggs.)
So, without further adieu, let's have these guys stand up and introduce themselves (you'll have to excuse the poor product photography...I was in a hurry and wanted to eat the cake not take pictures of it!)
Matt thought there was too much frosting...that's the only reason I made the cake...and I don't like chocolate :)
I also think sheet cake is better the next day when it comes out of the fridge...I'm not a warm cake person..but desperate times call for desperate measures...
This was a buttermilk Texas Sheet Cake (I'm hooked on anything buttermilk ever since my mom and dad made Alton Brown's buttermilk pancakes at Christmas-pancakes, syrup, cornbread, cake, biscuits?).
Gross out all you want...but I'll be baking a chocolate cake in my solar oven with my powdered eggs when the grocery stores are cleaned out (okay...so I can't even type that last line without laughing out loud! Maybe I should add that the .22 will be sitting next to me?)
Next up on the list...powdered butter...can't wait!
(I really like Emergency Essentials for all the weird food storage items - I went to check their site and sure enough...butter is on sale - must be my lucky day.)
*I have probably just put myself in the category of the gross food storage blogs that my sister was telling me about, but I stand by my chocolate cake and homemade rolls...
