Help with dairy free eggless cake recipe

Forum: Cakes & Cake Decorating

My great nephew has a number of food allergies. I will be making a cake for his 1st birthday and was hoping someone can help me with a cake recipe and also a frosting that contains no eggs or dairy. Would appreciate any help.

I’m sorry, Goreti. I’ve never baked without eggs and dairy.

Hi Goreti, this link may help https://cakebycourtney.com/egg-free-dairy-free-vanilla-cake/. Recipe at bottom of page. I haven’t tried it though but hope it does help you

Goreti ...

@Sandra I haven’t either so this I’ll be a new experience. The little cutie has a few allergies and is being tested for me.
@Nanna Lyn thank you so much for the link.

I’ve made many egg/diary/ gluten free cakes for my neighbour and good friends daughter Lauren.
Since your nephew isn’t gluten intolerant, you’re ok for regular ap flour. Just use your favourite cake recipe. Switch almond/rice/hemp milk for cows milk. Use aquafaba (chickpea liquid) as egg replacer. Works really well.

And believe it or not, you can also make a Swissish mbc from aquafaba too. Photo posted here with the recipe. Now recipe calls for “vegan butter”, but I’ve found from my experience, makes the icing super soft. I just do the one cup of shortening, period. Which means you may have to increase the icing sugar slightly. Of course to avoid any greasy taste in the icing, I always add lots of butter flavoured extract, some lemon too. That really helps.
My usual vegan go too is this recipe

It’s the easiest. It’s kinda like royal icing. So you can add a small amount of shortening to make a more creamy icing.
Hope this helps…❤️

So many of my cakes are vegan. Please check out the book Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World for a great buttercream, and for cake, Check out Gretchen’s Vegan Bakery online as well as Sara Kidd, who is an excellent vegan baker who shares a lot of her recipes

Hi Goreti. I know that “Man About Cake” (check you tube) uses only vegan cake recipes because he too has allergies. He offers his recipes for free. The few times that I have made eggless cakes, I substituted apple sauce for the eggs and that worked great. You can find the exact amount to substitute by googling “egg substitutes”. Mashed bananas also work well.

Goreti ...

Thank you all so much.

June ("Clarky's Cakes") ...

I have to say, I’ve made many vegan cakes/cupcakes and apple sauce and mashed bananas don’t work as egg replacement. To replace oil/butter, yes, but not eggs. After trying many substitutions, aquafaba worked the best.

The Garden Baker ...

June, I’ve never used aquafaba and it might very well work the best of all, BUT I have modified a family recipe chocolate cake using applesauce instead of eggs (up to 2 eggs can be substituted and that’s what my specific 8" recipe calls for) and it comes out really great every time. I’ve built it up to 4 layers so I can get a pretty tall cake, too. I’ve used banana in cupcakes to replace one or 2 eggs and that works great for me, too :)

June ("Clarky's Cakes") ...

Wow, Garden Baker, applesauce and bananas have worked for me in my quick breads and muffins. But not successfully in my cakes/ cupcakes. Obviously, you have a good cake recipe.
