Help! My son is deathly allergic to Milk, Eggs, and Peanuts. He is also allergic to red dye. I only have one recipe for a moist cocolate cake. It tends to be to moist to decorate well. Does anyone have a cake recipe that has no Milk, Eggs, Peanuts, or Red Dye in it?
PS: I can use soy milk.
Hi and Welcome, angeliqueellison.
Can you use egg substitutes?
Egg substitutes, eggless and other allergy recipes:
Look up a recipe for crazy cake. Also called wacky cake, and several other names. It's actually my absolute favorite chocolate cake recipe, and it's completely vegan. I've adapted it to make it many different flavors, too. So far, I've tried:
It's easy and it's delicious. I seldom even glance at other cake recipes.
My daughter is also allergic to eggs, nuts and peanuts. Go out and buy yourself some Ener-G Egg replacer. It's a powder that you mix with water and it mimics the properties of eggs in baking. I found mine at Krogers. Go to the Ener-G website. You can order it online.
I use that in place of eggs in recipes - some don't turn out as well as others so you just have to experiment. We don't like soy and I have trouble with milk so I use Rice Milk. I haven't done my cakes with Rice milk, but I'm sure it would be fine. Oh wait, I did one and it worked out perfectly. For the recipes that call for buttermilk, I suppose you could use Rice or Soy and add 1 tbs white vinegar per cup of milk.
Whenever a recipe calls for nuts or peanuts, I simply leave them out if my daughter will be eating it. Good luck. Baking with these allergies are tough sometimes, but it is doable. I have a great pancake recipe if you want.
Thanks! This information is priceless!

I had a request for that and looked on line under "Vegan Diet" and found an awesome banana cake and there where many others. The diet uses NO animal products. It was a little denser but tasty. Hope this helps.
I would recommend picking up the book "Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World"
While I have not personally tried the recipes, I had seen the book and recommended it to a friend of mine who has a daughter who is allergic to eggs and milk products. She bakes the cupcake recipes as cake and says they are really really good - the whole family likes them.
Hope that helps!
I had a special request to accommodate a vegan at one of my fraternity caterings. I searched the internet and found a vegan site with a great choc cake recipe. (Sorry I dont' have the link). But vegan sites are great resources.
