I need a cake recipe using the egg replacer. I finally bought the EnerG and made a cake today that was no good. Anybody have a delicious recipe they've already made and loved the taste? Chocolate, yellow, white, anything is good.

Thanks!

I'll re-raise the Wacky cake for you, best eggless cake ever.

This FAAN recipe has never failed me.

Oh, and I highly recommend the Cherrybrook Kitchens cake mixes. They are quick and easy to do and do not need eggs.

We use the Betty Crocker yellow or chocolate cake mix. I substitute eggs with 1 1/2TBS oil, 1 1/2 TBS water and 1 tsp baking powder for each egg. I thought it made pretty good cupcakes. And I just used the betty crocker icing. Don't have a recipe from scratch-I do it the easy way!

Thanks for the replies!
Momcat: does this cake actually rise like a normal cake? I guess that is what I am having the most trouble with for an egg free cake. It seems too dense with the substitutions I have used.

The way the FAAN recipe works is that the batter is thicker than normal cake batter because you use shortening instead of oil. Use your electric mixer to mix it. That will incorporate air into the batter and give it more height. Also, use cake flour instead of all-purpose flour. That will give you a lighter texture. I make the cake in two round pans and then stack them to make a two layer cake. It works really well with cupcakes, too.
I would say that the FAAN cake is slightly denser than regular cake, but still has a good texture. If you want a less dense cake, the Cherrybrook Kitchens mixes are less dense.

The wacky cake does rise as the vinegar and baking soda/baking powder react to each other causing the cake to rise. Eggless cakes are always a bit more dense (I call it fudgy) than other cakes, but they are terrific.
Do a search for any recipes that I've posted - they are all egg free as well as peanut/nut free.
The way I use EnerG is to mix the powder with hot tap water and mix it well until all the lumps are out. I then add it when the fat and sugar have been creamed already. Works fine for me every time.
Should work!

Where do you buy EnerG egg? I haven't seen it at any of my grocery stores?

You could order it online. I find it at Whole Foods and Raley's.

Momcat: I made the FAAN recipe just this morning and thought it was pretty tasty! The best out of the ones I have made so far.
Have you ever used the butter flavor shortening for this recipe? Or just butter?
Thanks!

I haven't tried the butter/butter flavor shortening. I usually use the Earth Balance Shortening.
