After reading Cathy's comment that she didn't have buttermilk so substituted milk/vinegar when she was making brownies made me think.Maybe we could have a section where people could look to see what they use in their cupboard before they fled to the shops, if they didn't have a particular ingredient at hand.Or would this come under Tips and Hints?
There is a little section on this in the Budget Busters booklet which is quite handy.  And there are other hints/tips floating around so it would be nice to compile them.  From memory, MeganJane had one for egg substitution?

Would it be possible to copy out this section onto the forum to get it started?How about for a title" Substitution- Whats' in your Cupboard ( Larder?)"

only problem is that when you have too many forums it can become really difficult to find things, especially when it's not immediately obvious where they might be. (not saying we shouldn't do it but that we need to be careful not to go too far)

I think MJ's was chia gel for the egg - not sure of the ratios though would have to try and find it ... hence the good idea of a separate section   :D
It was Linseed Gel and here's some others:

2 tbsp cornstarch = 1 egg
2 tbsp arrowroot flour = 1 egg
2 tbsp potato starch = 1 egg
1 heaping tbsp soy powder + 2 tbsp water = 1 egg
1 tbsp soy milk powder + 1 tbsp cornstarch + 2 tbsp water = 1 egg.
1 banana = 1 egg in cakes.
1 tbsp milled flax seed and 3 tbsp water = 1 egg. Light, fluffy cakes!
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

Thanks MJ. You are a modern, walking CWA book.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
