We are Orthodox and I wanted to take the no dairy/no animal products quick bread to the after Liturgy pot-luck.

I guess that you can substitute applesauce for the oil-but the eggs....I guess that is a different story! Needless to say the not-so-great results never left my kitchen. The kids won't even touch it! I guess I have created (yet another,) doorstop!

I've had many failures, too.

I've messed up in the past and learned that baking requires precise measurements and ingredients.

Sometimes things just can't be sbstituted. I wanted to make dressing one time and didn't have celery so I thought I would try celery seed. Well needless to say it didn't work out. My mother and I couldn't eat it so it went in the trash. But who knows what might work when we substitute. We learn from trial and error.

Welcome to the club!! You are not an experienced baker unless you take risks--try something new. Sometimes it works and other times it does not. Keep trying because once your substitution is successful the feeling you have is unbelievable.

We learn by doing and experimenting. Good luck next time!

I must be a "timid" baker. I'm always afraid to try substitutes for just that reason! Thanks for sharing your story!

Funny in a good way. I have been cooking/baking for 50 years and I still have flops. I did a roast for a friend (I have made many), but for some reason it was soooooo tough! You could barely cut it with a knife :). We had a great time though and this is a memory for us - we now sit back and laugh about how tough the roast was. A very dear friend, she ate it with no complaints - I miss her now.

Keep trying! I have some wonderful vegan baking recipes, including a chocolate-chip cookie recipe that all my friends swear is the best they've ever tasted!
