Egg Replacer: "egg replacer" by ener-g foods can be found in health food stores. For receipes requiring egg, replace each egg with: 1 tsp. Baking powder, 1 tbsp. Liquid, 1 tbsp. Vinegar 1 tsp. Yeast dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water 1 tbsp. Apricot puree 1 1/2 tbsp. Water, 1 1/2 tbsp. Oil, 1 tsp. Baking powder 1 packet plain gelatin, 2 tbsp. Warm water do not mix until ready to use.

Egg replacer: Make sure that u use "egg replacer" rather than "egg substitute". Egg substitute still has egg protein and is for people w cholesterol problem. Egg replacer does not, and u can find them in health food stores throughout the country. U can go online to food allergy organizations' websites to look for recipes using egg replacer.
