Eggless baked goods?

My son is allergic to eggs. We just had a food challenge and he failed it miserably. :/ (I was so hopeful that we might be able to cook with eggs again!) Anyway, the one thing he really wants to have are baked goods - cakes, brownies, and such. Does anyone have any tried and true recipes for any?

We use an egg-free replacer called EnerG in baked goods. Plus, many Duncan Hines cake mixes are egg and dairy free, so you can improvise from there. Good luck mama!

ETA a great recipe:

1 box DH Devil's food Cake
1 can 100% pumpkin
1/2 C water
1/2 C mini choc chips
Mix all together and bake per directions on box. I like making these like muffins for WW2pts each, but you can bake them in a big brownie, too. They are ooey, gooey high fiber brownies that taste great!

Re: Eggless baked goods?

I have been unable to tolerate eggs for a while,and I've found that most things you can just leave the eggs out. But if you feel like subbing in something, I figured, egg white is mostly protein and a little fat from the yolk, so this is my sub -

puree 1/4 c. plain unseasoned cooked white beans (or any color bean,if you are making something chocolate & they won't show) and add in two tbs. of oil or melted butter. Puree both together til it is smooth and creamy, add to your recipe to replace two eggs. This has worked well for me in muffins, cake, cookies.

I make a crock pot full of beans w/o seasoning and freeze them in small portions so I can do this whenever we want to bake.

Seconding the egg replacer. One of our roommates is a vegan and we've made brownies countless times using it and they turn out perfectly.

I second the canned pumpkin...I make "punkin muffins" and the like every fall, using just spice cake mix and a can of pumpkin. NOT pie filling, just unadulterated pumpkin. It makes it extremely moist, and very brownie-like in texture, so I'm sure you could use a chocolate mix and nobody would notice the pumpkin at all!

Unfortunately, 1/2 of the family doesn't like pumpkin, so that's a no-go.

Where can you typically find the egg replacer?

Sadly, there is no Whole Foods nearby. I'm jealous!

At least here, most health food stores AND grocery stores with a healthy foods section carry it- it comes in a box.
Applesauce also often works as a substitute in baking. DD is allergic to dairy, soy AND eggs so, that's fun too!
