To bake egg-free, substitute the following for one to three eggs:
Do not mix the items until ready to use.

A great substitute for eggs in baking is 1 Tbsp. soy flour to 1 Tbsp. water. It is a lot cheaper per unit. The bag of soy flour was $3 and I get 105 "eggs" out of it which comes to .02 cents. Eggs (.99 where I live) are 8 cents each.

What is a substitution for eggs in recipes?
In response to the reader who suggested mayo in place of eggs: Please remember that most commercial mayos contain eggs. I have a friend who is severely allergic to eggs. If he were ever given something to eat he was told was free of eggs, yet contained mayo, he would quickly be on his way to the emergency room. Always check labels when allergies are involved. Check out mothernature.com for more information on egg allergies and substitutions.

My middle daughter has a co-worker who is vegan. She's sort of made it her mission to include him in activities at work so that he can eat, too. Most of their co-workers think vegan food is weird when it's what we eat, just without meat and dairy. These are some wonderful egg substitutes, not just for vegans. I've used the first one many times with equal success.

There is a great product here in Canada called "Celimix". It is an egg replacer for baking only and is gluten and wheat free. I use it all the time successfully. Comes in a 500 gram yellow box. I'm not sure of availability in U.S.A., but the toll free number is: 1-866-989-0379.(Winnipeg, Manitoba)

If you just need to eliminate the egg yolk due to cholesterol, but can eat the white, the formula is two egg whites= 1 egg. And by the way, Egg Beaters are egg whites.

You can also use in place of eggs 1 tbsp golden sryup = 1 egg. My aunt told me this as she used this in the depression years when eggs were scarce. I have used this many times in vegan cakes.
So g'day to everyone.

For baking you can also use 1/2 a mashed up banana, it gives a yummy banana flavor too, really good with brownies. (08/17/2006)
If it is only egg yolk, that you are allergic to, feel free to use Low Fat Helmann's Mayo, which only contains egg whites. While it does not taste half as good as regular mayo, it is safe for those who can't eat egg yolks.
