I've just taken the dive into Vegan cakes and love the results, with one exception. Egg whites make cakes light and fluffy, without whites, Vegan cakes tend to be more brownie-ish. Is there a product Vegans can eat that I can add to the cake to lighten it up or a method - like whipping more air into the batter - that you can think of. Someone suggested an egg replacement called En-R-G but another vegan baker said that it contains everything already in the recipe. Help!
ACheck out the recipes in this book, most are plenty fluffy: http://www.amazon.com/dp/1569242739/?tag=cakecentral-20
Ener-G egg replacer does not work well for cakes (except pancakes).
i've found lighter recipes in the chocolate and red velvet recipes. I still haven't found a white/yellow vegan cake with a tender and fine crumb.
Avegetarian.about.com/od/desertrecipes/r/yellowcake.htm I just googled this recipe I've never tried it. Google. Light, fluffy vegan recipes and you get several ideas. You might have to go to a health food store to get egg replacements.
AI use flax seed ground in place of eggs
Egg replacer made with flax, it will totally remind you of egg whites when you make it. I've had no trouble with crazy(or wacky) cake type recipes. They turn out definitely cake like and not a brownie. I even have replaced the cocoa with lemon for a more "white" cake and it was also really good! But I can't remember how much lemon juice and zest I used in place of the cocoa.
