HI everyone! I am going to be doing a 1st birthday cake next month. The birthday girl is allergic to eggs. Does anyone have an egg-free recipe that can use for the smash cake or better yet - one good enough to use for the entire cake?

I have used egg substitute (it's a powder that is made of baking soda, potato starch and other stuff), and is good. I found that my cakes didn't rise as much, but still tasted good. That being said, I've forgotten the eggs entirely sometimes (and NO I wasn't drinking that night!!!!) and the cake still turned out all right!

do you still use eggs when you do the soda cakes??? One mix and one can of soda... is that right?

I was thinking about doing a soda cake... or even the one with just a mix and a can of pumpkin. I was trying to pick the brains of the experts of other great ideas and recipes first!! Thanks for your help!

This the one I use. It is chocolate. I haven't tried other flavors.

1 1/2 C all purpose flour
3/4 C granulated sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup canola oil
1 Tbs white distilled vinegar
1 C cold water

Combine dry ingredients. Make a well and add wet ingredients. Mix until just combined. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes. This only makes a one layer 8 or 9 inch cake so you would probably double it at least. I double it and it makes a good two layer 8 inch and I have also doubled it for a bundt type cake.

Hope this helps!

Seriously, go out and buy a box of egg substitute. It will keep for a long time in your cupboard, and it is easier than... Well, easier than finding a new recipe. I used the same recipe for my usual cakes, and then it's something like 1 tsp of stuff and 3 TBSP of water, mix it together so there are no clumps, and mix it like you would mix in your eggs. No muss, no fuss. Easy! I promise! And the taste is no different.
