So I got a call from a client that needs an eggless sponge cake. She tells me oh its for my son's first birthday and I am desperate for one. I said oh he is allergic? She says no we are vegan. WOW I wasn't expecting that in my little podunk town. I have told her I would make it, but I can't find a recipe, anybody have any directions for me? Anything is appreciated, thanks in advance!!!

It isn't 'sponge' without eggs. However, you might try using the egg replacment you can buy in the healthfood section of some groceries.

If you need to experiment (I would) it may not be cost effective.

You could also look in the threads for other posts for vegan recipes there are many.

I'm allergic to eggs, and thus far I've only made myself chocolate cakes. The wacky cake is a very good choice! I've not met anyone who didn't like it or could guess it was eggless. It doesn't make much batter, however.

There are some other recipes on this site. Search for eggless or egg free.

Hi there!
My family is vegetarian and we don't use eggs in cooking. I use EnerG egg replacer in my scratch cakes and it turns out great! You can also use ready mixes and replace eggs with the egg replacer (that is if ready mix doesn't have milk powder, etc)

If you don't want to invest in replacer, you can also add soy milk instead of amount of water that's recommended on the box+ oil and skip eggs altogether.
