My son is highly allergic to eggs. I am trying to find a good recipe for cupcakes that are egg free, so I can take one for him when we attend parties. I have tried using applesauce as a substitute and the cupcakes turn out very dense and muffin tasting. Has anyone used ener-g egg replacer in a cupcake recipe before? Or do you have any recipe suggestions for a light, fluffy cupcake?
I have an entire book of egg-free cupcake recipes called "Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World". If you let me know what flavor you have in mind, I'll post one for you.
I agree, the best egg-free recipes I've come across are in the "Vegan cupcakes take over the world" with one adaptation. I typically use rice milk instead of soy for a lighter cupcake.
