Eggless Cooking

Question: My son is allergic to eggs which means that baking can be a chore most of the time. Do you know of a good substitute for baking cookies? I've tried egg re-placers, flax, extra baking powder, and a few other things that I can think of their names at the moment. My problem is the cookies end up flatish but edible. The other thing that I have an issue baking is brownies. I can not for the life of me get brownies to turn out without using eggs. I've gone through so many box recipes it's crazy. They turn out greasy and hard as a rock. They are most definitely NOT edible!

Anyway I thought I would ask and see if you might have any suggestions.

Hi Charis—

Have you checked out this website? Madhuram's Eggless Cooking

I like it because it gives "real-life" experience in baking, detailing what works and what doesn't. It seems to me if you can't find a suitable cookie or brownie recipe on this eggless site, there may be no hope. The author has done extensive testing, and her pictures look scrupmtious.

Happy Cook'n,
