I hope someone can help me out. I wish to give a cake/brownie mix in a jar as a gift to a very busy new mother who loves to bake homemade cakes and brownies from scratch, but has no time to weigh and measure.
Due to allergies, boxed cake mixes are not an option, there are too many additives. Plus the family has egg allergies too! Is such a thing possible? All the recipes I have found require eggs to be added.
Thank you in advance.

I've made this for over 40 years. It's the only cake that my children wanted for their birthday! Also doubles well and makes great cupcakes.
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons cocoa
1/3 cup cooking oil
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup cold water
Mix dry ingredients in 9 x 9-inch pan. Make 3 holes; pour oil, vinegar and vanilla in separate holes. Pour water over all. Mix well with fork or hand mixer. Do not beat. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. Leave in pan and frost (with chocolate fudge icing) while still warm.
Ground flax seed is a good egg replacement. I mix 1 heaping tablespoon of ground flax seen in 1/4 cup of warm water. Let it set a minute, then mix in. This will replace one egg in cakes, breads, and cookies. I have not tried putting the ground flax seed directly in my jars of mix.
Here's Jodi's eggless cake from ThriftyFun. Liquids would still have to be measured though. GG Vi
