Hi there,
I have a friend whose daughter is allergic to gluten and egg. Does anyone know of a good recipe I could use? I have had success in finding gluten free box mixes, or even experimenting with different flours, but I have not been able to find a good egg replacement.

Before I commit to making her daughter's birthday cake I want to be sure I can deliver!

Any suggestions would be helpful, thank you!

thank you! The carrot cake does have egg, however. But I am going to try the chocolate recipe! Thanks again!

You can try Ener-G egg replacer. I have used it in a cookie recipe that only calls for 1 egg with good results. I have eaten cakes made with it and it's an OK replacement, not what I would put out on a regular basis. I realize that I am a little more critical than most (especially kids), but it can work.

You can find it online at http://www.ener-g.com/ or in stores like Whole Foods, Trader Joes. Even check your grocer since it's now on the shelf at my grocery store.
