Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

After leaving all the other things out unfortunately it does include eggs so I can't eat it :roll:
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Bugger.

Is there a substitute that could be used?

Unfortunately it doesn't really work with cakes like this as although it does the binding that egg does it doesn't gives the rich texture. It's like comparing soya milk with real milk, yes you can drink it but it just isn't the same. :(

I asked on another forum (yes, there are others out there!) and someone suggested:

I'm no expert but I would have thought that a bit of liquid instead of the eggs would work, a tablespoon of milk, buttermilk or water per egg,

Not exactly dairy-free. ;)

I have to agree with Mad: egg replacements are okay for sticking things together, but cakes tend to be like bricks. Bf is vegan - cooking is not a problem, but baking is a real bugger.

If anyone is interested, I have a vegan recipe for a really good chocolate cake and could translate it. It doesn't contain a lot of flour, and I think you could replace that with a gluten-free alternative.

Pretty sure water is not dairy! :lol:

Not sure about buttermilk and it's origins, mind.

You get milk, churn it to make butter and what's left is buttermilk. ;)

My 25 year old has given up dairy and gluten and its been amazing! Her whole health both physical and mental has turned around.

She has had ups and downs during the years where she could eat anything or virtually nothing and sooooooooo many tests done. We had to have her 21st in a Japanese restaurant where we cooked our own food in a broth set over a fire in the table only because that way we could control what went into the food. It was delicious by the way. Its never been a lack of appetite for her just that her body decides at some times that it wont process different things and she ends up in horrific pain.

I am not one to go crazy for restrictive diets but each to their own. Still... the change in her has been nothing short of a miracle.

Good for her, especially if she can find suitable replacements.
Looks like she's lactose intolerant and since gluten also seems to make trouble she probably suffers from coeliac disease, too. Poor girl.
Fortunately these days there is a wide range of gluten free products, lactose free dairy and for those who still want to consume dairy products there are lactase tablets.
