When making corn bread from the box, do u have to add eggs?

I want to make cornbread but i just realized i dont have any eggs? Is this a requirement that it needs or can it do without? Or is their any substitution for eggs that i can use?When making corn bread from the box, do u have to add eggs?
Yes if the directions call for one.When making corn bread from the box, do u have to add eggs?
It should tell you on the box if it needs eggs or not.


1 egg = 2 tablespoons liquid + 2 tablespoons flour + 陆 tablespoon shortening + 陆 teaspoon baking powder. (Add one or two drops of yellow food coloring if you need the yellow color the egg creates.)


flaxmeal (Make flaxmeal by grinding flaxseed in a blender until it has the consistency of cornmeal. Use two tablespoons flaxmeal plus 1/8 teaspoon baking powder plus 3 tablespoons water for each egg called for in recipe.


gelatin (To replace each egg: Dissolve 1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin in 1 tablespoon cold water, then add 2 tablespoons boiling water. Beat vigorously until frothy.)


cornstarch (Substitute 1 tablespoon cornstarch plus 3 tablespoons water for each egg called for in recipe.


mayonnaise (Substitute 3 tablespoons mayonnaise for each egg called for in recipe.)


Ener-G Egg Replacer (Substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons Egg Replacer plus 2 tablespoons water for each egg called for in recipe.)


bananas (Substitute 1/2 of a mashed ripe banana plus 1/4 teaspoon baking powder for each egg.)


silken tofu (Substitute 1/4 cup tofu for each egg.)


fruit-based fat substitutes (Substitute 2 tablespoons fat substitute for each egg in recipe.)
YES!!
This is a great basic Corn Bread recipe and it uses a box. You can use this later when you do have eggs.








Corn Bread


1 egg, slightly beaten


1/2 cup water


2 Tbsp. butter, margarine or bacon fat, melted


1 and 1/4 cups corn bread mix





Preheat oven to 425F(220C) . Butter a 5 by 3 inch loaf pan. In a small bowl, combine egg, water and butter, margarine or bacon fat. Beat with a wire whisk to blend. Stir in corn bread mix with a fork until just moistened.


Batter will be lumpy. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 20 to 25 minutes until toothpick tests done. Makes 2 or 3 servings.





The suggestion of mayonnaise can be tricky if you use a lot of it since Mayo is made from a lot of oil as the base. But for one box of corn meal mix it should not matter. There are chocolate mayonnaise cake recipes that are wonderful.
It is best to use eggs, but since you don't have any, use 2 tbls of mayonnaise. That should do the trick. It's an old trick my grandma taught me.
this may sound weird but subsitute one tablespoon of mayonase for each egg....
