Best Answer

Substituting eggs is tricky because eggs play different functions in foods: emulsifying, enriching, adding structure when baking. Consider the recipe and whether the yolk or the whites are more important. If baking a cake, it's probably the white (for structure), and you may need to add additional baking powder or a different leavening. For brownies and cookies it's probably the yolk that is important for richness or emulsion, and possible substitutes might range from additional oil or butter to yogurt, applesauce or bananas.

What are the eggs you can use instead of chicken eggs?

The eggs you can substitute are duck, goose or ostrich eggs - basically any egg. All eggs have the same nutritional value, but make sure the eggs you use are fresh. When cooking, check the desired size. The nutrition value is the same in all eggs but not the size. For example, don't substitute a jumbo egg for a peewee egg (these are sizes) as you will get too much wet ingredient than desired for that recipe. Also, don't substitute a peewee egg for a jumbo egg because you won't get enough wet ingredient.
