    Smile Food allergies

    I noticed that someone else on the forums is allergic to milk and eggs also. What do you use for eggs in baking? I have tried the egg/oil/soda mix and gelatin but they came out nasty.

    Anyone have any ideas? I was thinking of trying a small amount of tofu.

    Try looking for the Egg Replacer by Ener-G. www.ener-g.com. It worked well for me on certain recipes. I found that I had to use cake mixes because it was made to be more foolproof than made from scratch cake. Duncan Hines has some milk free, egg free mixes.

    You substitute one tablespoon of soy flour and one tablespoon of water for one egg when baking. I recommend not substituting the fat in the recipe also such as replacing applesauce for oil. Most recipes need a little fat if you take out the egg.

    I use the Ener-G egg replacer -- works well for me. I also substitute applesauce for all of the fat when baking -- no problems. I bake everything from scratch.

    I also use gluten free flours and find that I don't need to use xanthan gum if I use the Ener-G. I know this doesn't apply to milk and egg allergies, but someone might find it helpful.
