Hi Everybody,

I am a strict vegetarian. I love to make and eat (of course ) cookies,brownies etc

The only thing preventing me from baking at home is that most recipes require eggs and I dont eat them.

Does any one have any suggestions for this? Any help is appreciated! :biggrin:

I bought that powdered egg substitute and tried it on brownies, no good for me but maybe I didn't mix the stuff correctly, I will definitely try again...

I just made a recipe tonight that would work for you! It is from the Betty Crocker Classic Cookbook- no eggs or dairy in it. You can mix by hand as well. It turned out well and was a bit denser than traditional recipes, but not in a bad way.

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/4cup baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup cold water

1. Heat oven to 350°. Grease bottom and side of round pan, 9 X 1 1/2 inches, or square pan, 8 X 8 X 2 inches, with shortening; lightly flour.

2. Mix flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Mix oil, vinegar and vanilla. Vigorously stir oil mixture and water into flour mixture about 1 minute or until well blended. Immediately pour into pan.

3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes. Serve warm or cool with ice cream.

*Do not use self-rising flour.

Also, look here:

Anna has some vegan recipes for cookies/cake, although I've never tried any. Another idea is 101cookbooks.com for possible vegan baking b/c Heidi's recipes are veggie ones only, but I think she has done a lot of vegan stuff too w/ her baking. HTH!

Silken tofou is the best egg substitute I have found. I am a life-long vegetarian - but, did the strict Vegan diet for 2 years. I can make cheesecake that tastes like the dairy kind with silken tofu - cookies, cakes, etc - silken tofu is the way to go as an egg sub.

Slightly off topic, but, isn't it VEGANS who don't eat eggs and dairy, not vegetarians?

Yes ^ - Vegan connotes NO eggs,. dairy, honey - anything that is made by an animal.

Technically, there are various forms of vegetarians, lacto-veg (eats eggs/dairy), pesce-veg. (eats seafood), etc etc....
