A friend of mind is allergic to eggs and her husband would like for her to be able to eat a cake on her birthday.

Thanks for the help,

you can check the recipe section for eggless recipes.

If you pm me I can send you a yummy chocolate cake recipe (milkless, eggless) that my family has used for years.

You can use this product in your regular recipes:

Alot cheaper than buying eggs also. I do not notice a difference in how the cake bakes. It can be found at most Whole Foods (and probably health food stores)

Check out vegan cake recipes. I lost the one I had, but basically you use extra oil instead of eggs. I used espresso instead of water and it was really good.

My son is also allergic to eggs. I've had better luck substituting either sour cream or yogurt into a recipe than using Egg Replacer. I generally use one large (cupcake/ muffin sized) scoop of sour cream per egg. This method does not work if you try it in a boxed mix. Also, don't forget that you can't use any meringue powder or color flow mix. I've heard that using dream whip instead does the trick, but I have yet to experiement with it. I just make butter cream sans meringue.

As snowshoe shared....I bought a box of the Ener-G egg replacement powder from my health food store.....believe baked so nice and I used a cake mix. I have a customer who has a little girl who can't have eggs...and I had tried a number of different things...tofu, to applesauce, all kinds of things....and this Ener-G egg replacement has worked really well.

In fact....I have an eggless wedding cake to make this weekend...and plan to use the Ener-G powder.
