Can you bake a pumpkin pie with Ener-G Egg Replacer? Does that vegan egg substitute work for that traditional recipe?
When B recently expressed a desire to eat pumpkin pie again – it’s been a while since I baked one – I thought, why not? I can whip up a vegan one, since I have almond milk and that egg replacer.
I wasn’t sure that the cornstarch-based thickener would work in place of eggs, but I thought I’d give it a shot.
The following photos provide the answer to, “Does Ener-G® Egg Replacer work for pumpkin pie?”
The filling isn’t exactly oozing out everywhere, but I did end up having to scoop it out with a spoon. It was just too gooshy to take out with a spatula.
First of all, no, there is no crust. I was going to make one, but B decided he’d rather eat it without.
Second – I know, I know, it looks really gross. But it actually tasted delicious. Instead of pumpkin pie, we had pumpkin pudding.
So next time someone gets a craving for pumpkin pie, I’ll simply toss all the ingredients in my Vitamix, then cook the whole shebang in the saucepan until thick. But if you’re determined to bake an actual pumpkin pie, and want to make it vegan, you need to look into an alternative egg replacer.
Happy baking! 🙂
