You don't need dairy or eggs to make amazing cakes, pies, candy, cookies and other sweets.  Did you know that you can add moisture, bind and leaven without using eggs!  There are several good commercial egg replacements on the market, or replace eggs in cakes, rolls  and other sweets using basic kitchen ingredients:

Make sure to mix the “egg” replacement ingredients together, and let the mixture rest or sit as directed BEFORE adding it to your recipe.
