    so, a very close person to me is allergic to eggs so he can't eat my cakes and he's moving abroad and i don't know when i'll see him next. so i want to make a chocolate cake for him. an eggless one obviously.

    i've been looking through a lot of recipes and there are thousands to choose from! i wanted to know what exactly replaces the egg in the recipe. and what should i look for when choosing a good recipe?

    thanks so much! i'm hoping to make the cake for this coming Friday. :))

    Well, applesauce is the most popular substitute.

    You can also use tofu.

    Personally, I would use banana's or yogurt....but thats my preference.

    This is a bakers recipe for egg replacement--

    Egg Substitute Mix (homemade) --> To replace 1 egg:
    2 tablespoon flour + 1/2 teaspoon oil + 1/2 teaspoon baking powder + 2 tablespoons liquid (milk, cream, buttermilk, diluted yogurt, or dairy free alternatives like coconut milk, soy milk, etc) beaten together until smooth.

    Well, I don't know what you mean by "good recipe". All recipes are good, it just depends on what you are expecting out of it, or want to do with it.

    I've heard of using rice flour, but I've never had anything made with it.
    Of course, it's CHOCOLATE, so it can't be bad!!!!!
