egg substitute in cake mix

I want to make a cake for DH's birthday. I have a box mix: betty crocker's butter recipe yellow. It calls for 3 eggs. Can I replace the eggs with something else??

Banana puree works as a great sub. Are you replacing for health reasons? Allergies? Cholesterol? If it's just cholesterol, there may be a note on the box on how many egg whites to use instead of whole eggs. If it's allergy, look up using bananas as a sub for eggs. Somewhere it tells you the exact measurement of how much banana puree equals an egg.

allergies and health. We don't really like bananas in food.

What about applesauce. Does this work in cake mix??

Yes, 1/4 c applesauce per egg replaced. For bananas it is 1/2 a banana per egg. Applesauce does work

how do you feel about diet soda? You can actually just take a can of diet soda and pour it into a cake mix, mix, and bake. It's pretty yummy. i used to make chocolate diet coke cake all the time when i was on a low/no fat diet. With a white cake I'd use diet sprite or some other kind of clear soda.
