I used ducan hines white cake with egg replacer and the cake came out fine- it didnt rise too much but it didnt sink either. I tried the ducan hines lemon with egg replacer and the cake came out super moist and basically fell apart. If anyone has any tips or recipes for a dairy free/ nut free cake please share. I looked in the recipes and found 1 that only had 1 star rating lol. The lady wanting this cake really wanted lemon if at all possible.
Thanks a ton !!

I've only made one egg-free cake, and after tyring several egg replacers, this is the one that I used. I used a Duncan Heines cake mix and the texture of the cake came out perfect. None of the guests at the party had any idea that the cake was egg-free.

Egg Replacer (equivalent to 3 whole eggs):

1/4 c. natural applesauce
4 Tbs. water
2 Tbs. vegetable oil
4 tsp. baking powder

I hope this helps!

Why can you not use eggs? Eggs are not dairy icon_confused.gif . Are you trying to make a vegan cake with no animal by-product? Please clarify, maybe I'm missing something.

Also, check the package ingredients for other "dairy" items. Also, eggs are not dairy.

Guess its part of his allergy. Mom said no dairy and that -that included eggs. I had the child in my class last year and she said eggs are included in his severe allergy.

I haven't eaten it, but Cherrybrook Kitchen sells boxed cake mix (yellow and chocolate) that is dairy free, egg free and peanut and nut free. 1 box makes a 9" round cake. I've found their products at most larger grocery stores.
