what is a egg substitute or how many eggs

If you prefer to use whole eggs, you would need 2 eggs. Egg substitute is a liquid egg replacement that can be found in most grocery stores, usually right next to the eggs. Enjoy!

Ok, odd question, but since egg substitute is unavailable where I live...how many eggs do you think I'd need? 2?

I am confused. Use paper liners AND cooking spray? And to t he other reader who is diabetic, so am I but I am going to try substituting half of the sugar with the Splenda that measures like sugar, then as long as I don't go crazy, it should be okay. Another suggestion might be to try using the product that is already mixed half and half.

Where are the instructions to use paper liners? Can't find it. But - if you're making muffins, paper liners would be a good idea. Sometimes I will line a bread pan with wax or parchment paper on the bottom and up the short sides and also spray with cooking spray. Anything to keep this wonderful bread from sticking.

this is a good reciepe but i was wondering if you could post nuturtion values. i have diabetes and this would help me in making choices to keep myself on track
