Whisk again, about 30 seconds. Let sit until thickened, about 2 minutes more.
If you are nervous to try this in your baking, start by replacing only half of the egg called for in a recipe. The flax seed will affect the colour and add a nutty taste (plus great nutrition!) but has no effect on texture, rising or baking times.
