Default Brownie Mix: Ifi don't use an Egg, will they just come out chewier/less cake like?

i just found one of those Betty Crocker Brownie mixes in my cupboard. It ses to add water, oil, and one egg. Now, i don't have any eggs, and i can't really be arsed to go get some, and i want brownies, dammit

So, if i don't add an egg, rather add abit more oil instead, will i egg up with thin/chewy brownies, rather then the cake like ones. I actually like thin chewy brownies anyway.


advice?

You will die if you do not follow the directions.

I think you can substitute applesauce for an egg. I am not sure though of the taste effects, though I can't see it being any worse than it being too oily.

Generally those one-egg recipes already create chewy brownies (they usually say something like add an extra egg or two if you want cake-like brownies). Leaving the eggs out entirely might result in something that resembles thick pudding moreso than brownies...

I think you substitute applesauce for the oil....I've never tried it w/o the egg.

And you don't appleize it...it doesn't taste like apple...I think it tastes better.

Yep, applesauce is sub'd for the oil... not sure what would happen with no egg at all, I think the egg binds it all together. What the heck, give it a try, it'll still be chocolate

I can't believe i know this, but --

Egg does a few things: adds liquid, helps it rise, adds body.

You can leave out the egg, add some extra liquid and a tiny bit of baking powder type stuff to make it rise.

For some reason, a banana works reasonably well as an egg substitute too.

Or just make it without the egg, add a bit more liquid, and it won't rise but it'll be flatter and good.

If you don't put egg in it, it will be real bad. Trust me on this one guys, been there, done that. It sets up like concrete when it bakes without egg.

I wouldn't think no eggs would be good, but on the big box of brownies that requires 2 eggs I made them with one and they were good.

No eggs, I think they would fall apart or turn into a non-brownie substance.

So I had a girlfriend for all of 9 months. She dropped by one afternoon when I was sick with a pan of brownies and a video tape with the simpsons on it (my favorite show). so I start eating the brownies and turn on the tape. midway through it, it cuts to her ******* off some dude. he **** in her mouth, she looks at the camera, and says "you're dumped. enjoy the brownies" - and spits the mouthful of *** into a bowl of brownie mix. ****ed up huh? I want to die.
