Hi, I'm trying to find a recipe for my son who's allergic to eggs and cows milk. I tried carrot cake and it didn't come that good. I've tried useing egg sub. from ref eile, but he got all fussy and his rash came back. So, any one can help me would be an angle... plus his 3rd b'day is coming up in July, so it'll be great to see his reaction that when I tell him he can actually eat his b'day cake.
In the latest Joy of Cooking they have recipes for two vegan cake layers, one orange and one chocolate. They should fill the bill nicely!

My son was allergic to eggs and my niece was allergic to eggs and milk. Birthday's around these parts were often egg and milk free.

I found that if you do a chocolate cake, use a can of pumpkin pie mix which replaces the eggs and oil. You won't even taste the pumpkin. Or you can use a can of diet coke or cherry coke in place of the eggs and oil as well.
A lot of stores now carry cherrybrook kitchen. It's a box mix cake.
