Egg Substitutions:

Ener-G Egg Replacer

1/2 Banana

1 1/2 tsp baking powder; 1 1/2 TBSP oil; and 1 1/2 TBSP water mixed together = 1 egg

1/4 cup Applesauce
1 packet Gelatin, 2 TBSP warm water (do not mix until ready to use)

1 tsp yeast dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water

1 tsp baking powder; 1 TBSP liquid (such as water); 1 TBSP vinegar

 

Cane Sugar Lollipops:

1 1/2 c.. sugar

1/2 c. water

In small saucepan over med-high heat, combine sugar andwater; cook, until sugar is dissolved (1-2 min). Bring to a boil,cover panand cook 3 min. Remove lid and cook syrup until a candy thermometer registers 310 degrees. 12- 15 min.  Pour into molds, insert sticks, let cool 20-25 min. Remove from molds andcool completely on parchment.  You have to use the white candy molds, the clear are not tempered for high heat. You can find some online... http://www.candyplus.net/hard_candy_molds_4.htm

Note: make sure the heat is high enough to reach the 310 degrees in the time they suggest or the sugar granilizes and the lollipops are opaque. I found it needs to be almost high setting.

And don't try to remove them when too hot, they'll stick to the mold. Don't forget to buy sticks and candy thermometer.
