    What can be used in a cake mix in place of egg?

    My sister is allergic to egg albumen, so we cannot give her any food containing egg. I want to make a cake for her birthday and so want to know what can be used instead of egg,

    You can get powdered egg replacement at a health food store. I use applesauce to replace oil. A little extra may help to replace the egg also. It's worth a try. Try it on a cheap cake mix first to see how it turns out before you do the actual birthday cake.

    Applesauce is a good one. It makes what you're making have a fudgy texture that I like.
    You can also do 1 tbsp of cornstarch with 2 tbsp of water, wisked, for each egg.
    In my experience, both work well!

    I tried this recently and it worked great : 2 tbsp water and 1 tbsp oil and 2 tsp baking powder.

    Eggs are remarkably versatile; either cooked by themselves or as a functional ingredient in countless dishes.  But if you can't consume them, what are your options? To determine the best substitutes, you need to consider the functional roles. read more

    I mix 1 Tbsp flaxseed meal with 3 Tbsp water in a bowl and let it sit until it gets goopy.  I use that mixture for 1 egg.  So, for two eggs, you use 2 Tbsp flaxseed meal and 6 Tbsp water; 3 eggs--of flaxseed-9 of water... and so on.

    Ground flaxseed does a beautiful and healthy job of replacing eggs in baked goods, though getting a "white" cake with it is not possible.  I've experimented with flaxseed and find that it goes well with chocolate and is a great addition to fruit filled cakes.
