Egg free cakes - any tried recipes?

My grand-son is severely allergic to eggs- and some nuts. There are many recipes on the net, but I'd love to have some TRIED recipes, as those I've attempted have not been a great success. I'd be very grateful. Merci

Re: Egg free cakes - any tried recipes?

Odile,
I have tried this one http://jeenaskitchen.blogspot.com/20...ke-recipe.html

minus the mangoes (hate them, sorry ) but with oranges instead and it worked beautifully! My husband is allergic to dairy products and this one also works well with margarine instead of butter. Her website has a section focused on egg-free products. This is the only one I have tried, though. The pictures are also helpful to let you see if you're on the right track.

Re: Egg free cakes - any tried recipes?

One of my favorites which my mother used to bake when I was growing up is a chocolate cake she called "Screwball Cake" - it uses vinegar and baking soda to help it rise rather than eggs. The center is nicely moist, the top a bit crispy.

The recipe:

3 c (330g) all-purpose flour
2 c (450g) sugar
2/3 c (75g) cocoa
2 tsp baking soda
2 c (474ml) water
2/3 c (156ml) oil
2 tsp vinegar
2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 425°F

Mix dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and mix until all is combined.

Pour into a buttered 9" x 13" cake pan. Bake for 45 to 60min or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.

Odile, I used to bake fab vegan cakes, they got eaten up by the non vegans by the time they were cool enough to be devoured every time, but if you google vegan cakes, you will have gazillion of recipes. Yum.

Thanks all. MC I've found loads of recipes, but I'd really like recommendation/s for tried and tested recipes. Do you have one that sticks in mind for being the 'best'. Merci.

I would use the recipe above and substitute the 2c of water for 1c of strong brewed coffee and 1c of buttermilk (if dairy is ok, if not 1c water 1c coffee).

Re: Egg free cakes - any tried recipes?

I have the recipe for this chocolate vegan cake at home home, but it is almost identical, I only used wholewheat flour instead, and didn't usually use glazing, the cake is moist. I also use a lot of apple juice, to make it sticky, as much as it needs (instead of eggs in reg recipes), instead of the water they have in this recipe and I don't use vinegar.

Re: Egg free cakes - any tried recipes?

Oh Odile! I had to log in after -- forever -- to post this recipe. Our favorite birthday cake still and our son has outgrown his egg allergy. Some of our friends also use this all the time once we introduced them to it. I hope chocolate is ok and . . . hope the US measurements are OK.

It is tried and true and easy and good . . .

Re: Egg free cakes - any tried recipes?

Now I see the others have actually posted the same recipe. So, I guess I just confirm the tested and loved part.

I've made this few times, last spring / summer : Strawberry muffins (vegan recipe). Very moist & tasty

• all purpose flour

• 1 1/4 T. baking powder

• 1 T. fresh grated orange zest

• ½ t. salt

• ¼ t. ginger

• 2 cups chopped strawberries, divided

• ¾ cups granulated sugar (I prefer unrefined cane sugar)

• ¼ cup maple syrup

• ½ cup canola oil

• 1/3 cup unsweetened plain soy milk

• 1 T. fresh orange juice

1. Preheat the oven to 375 F. Lightly oil or spray large muffin tins with dairy-free non-stick

cooking spray, or line a muffin pan with muffin liners and lightly spray the liners.

2.. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, orange zest, salt and

ginger. Set aside.

3. In a food processor, process 1 ½ cups of the strawberries with the granulated sugar, maple

syrup, canola oil, soy milk and orange juice until smooth. Add the strawberry mixture to the dry

ingredients, stirring until just combined. Fold in the remaining ½ cup strawberries until evenly

distributed.

4. Portion the batter into the muffin tins, filling each about 2/3 of the way full. Bake for 25-35

minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin emerges clean.

I bet you this is the easiest eggless cake,with all the ingredients readily available at your home.


Ingredients

All purpose flour- 2 1/2 cup
Condensed Milk- 200 ml (or u can just add plain milk)
Butter-150gm
Coke-1 1/2 tin
baking powder-3 tsp
Cocoa-1/2 cup(according to your taste....u can add little less too)
Sugar -1 1/2 cup

In a bowl or mixer if you have take 200ml of condensed milk or plain milk,add powdered sugar and mix it
with whisk until well mixed.melt the butter and add it when warm to the sugar mixture and beat until mixed
well.Now take the dry ingredients the 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour add 1/2 cup of coco pwdr,add 1 tblsp
of baking powder and mix everything well.now add the wet ingrdient in the flour mixture and just mix it.
now add the soda i.e. coke and mix everything well it should be not be too thick.

Put it in the oven for 15 min.let the cake rest in the oven for 5 to 10 min

And your Eggless chocolate cake is ready.

Re: Egg free cakes - any tried recipes?

I make this a lot, it's always very popular and the great thing is that the longer you leave it the better it gets. It is, for a cake, really healthy and full of slow release energy.

I usually use soft brown sugar rather than caster sugar as it melts more easily and I think the taste of unrefined sugar dose not sit so well with all the nuts and fruit.


Panforte di Sienna


200g ( 7oz ) Almonds, freshly ground
100g ( 4oz ) Almonds left whole
100g ( 4oz ) Walnuts, freshly ground
100g ( 4oz ) Hazelnuts, freshly ground
300g ( 10oz ) candied orange and lemon peel, finely chopped
50g ( 2oz ) dried figs, finely chopped
200g ( 7oz ) caster sugar
100g ( 40z ) Honey
a pinch each of ground cinnamon, cloves,
coriander and freshly grated nutmeg
2 tablespoon of all-purpose ( plain) flour
1 sheet rice paper
2 extra teaspoons of cinnamon and flour, mixed together
Preheat Oven 160C ( 325F/Gas 3 )
20cm ( 8 inch ) shallow baking tin

Put the honey and sugar into a heatproof bow and
place on top a saucepan with boiling water stirring all the time until sugar has dissolved
now mix in all the other ingredients
line the lightly greased baking tin with the rice paper
pour in the mixture and dust with the flour and cinnamon
bake in the preheated oven for about 40 minutes
the cake will remain flat and not rise
cool and dust off remaining flour.
wrap in foil and keep in a tin in a cool place, will keep for many weeks.
before serving dust lightly with powder sugar
Bon Appétit

Re: Egg free cakes - any tried recipes?

I've used this flax seed substitute to replace eggs in a carrot cake and it turned out light and soft - everybody loved it.

http://www.care2.com/greenliving/fla...ubstitute.html

I did use an electric coffee grinder to finely mill the seeds then put the milled seeds into a mini food processor with the water. Whisking would probably work too. the result was like merringues. I guess its the protein in the seeds that mimicks the egg proteins??
