Corn Muffins & Egg Powder

I just got whole egg powder at the preparedness store. I thought it would be a nice thing to store. I wondered if it would change the quality to recipes. So far I have tried a cookie mix and corn bread from scratch. Both have turned out great. What kind of powder have you bought and do you like it?

Corn Muffins

1 cup flour

4 tbsp sugar

4 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 cup corn meal

1 egg or (1 tbsp of egg powder with 3 tbsp water)

1 cup milk

¼ cup vegetable oil


Sift flour with sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in corn meal. Beat egg slightly. Add milk and oil. Combine with dry ingredients, stirring until moist.

Bake at 425’ for 10 minutes


  1. I've bought some (Blue Chip Brand) but haven't opened it yet. Thanks for posting this recipe; I have wanted to try it out but wasn't sure how to use it.

  2. Actually the can says "Morning Moos" but I think it is a Blue Chip product.

  3. Okay, here I am again commenting about egg powder. I have a sheet of paper showing the shelf life of Blue Chip products, and whole egg powder is supposed to have a 5-10 year shelf life.

    Until just now, I never bothered to look too closely at the can... but it says that 1 T. of dry powder equals 1 egg, and that there are 226 servings (eggs) in the can. So, in my can, there are almost 19 dozen eggs. Wow.

    Jana: what product do you have and how many eggs come in it?

  4. Jana...question on egg powder. Does it matter if you have egg whites, 'scrambled eggs' or whole eggs for these recipes? I was inspired by your post to go by powdered eggs and had no idea there would be choices.

    By the way Brenda, I ended up buying whole eggs and there are only 170 servings in my can.

  5. Kat: I am surprised at such a serving difference. You bought it at Macey's, yes?

  6. yes...I noticed the scrambled egg can was more along the serving lines as yours. That's when I started wondering about the difference between the three types and what that meant for baking.

  7. Whole Egg powder is for baking only. Egg white powder is for baking only too, but only for things that call for egg white such as angel food cake and white cake. Scrambled egg powder is for being able to scramble yourself some eggs. Does that help?

    226 and 170 SERVINGS!! That is craziness!! My can only came with 96 servings. It cost $21.90 and the brand is rainy day foods. How much did yours cost?

    The lady at the preparedness store said it could last 20 to 30 years. She also said to put it in a gallon storage bag after opened and then put it back in the container. Opened could last you 2 to 3 years.

    I really wanted to store it, but wanted to make sure it worked good. I am satisfied!

  8. Dave is making oatmeal cookies with it right now. I'll let you know if it turns out...

  9. Cookies turned out great with whole egg powder!

  10. It has been awhile since I bought my egg powder but I think it was about 19 bucks a can (but I can't be certain.)

    Current ad at Macey's has Morning Moo's (a Blue Chip product) listed for these prices:

    whole or scrabbled for 18.99 (36 oz.),
    egg whites for 22.99 (2.25 lbs)

    They have another brand, Mountain House, which is scrambled eggs with bacon in a 20.3 oz. can for 23.99.

    Thanks for the report on the cookies. This is giving me a lot of encouragement about its uses. Now I need to figure out how many eggs I'd need per year and buy accordingly.

  11. I got it at Macey's for $18.99 for the Whole Eggs.
