I have just started trying cakes without eggs for a friend. Here's an apple one from Bakin' Without Eggs(Rosemary Emro.) Was like a delicious coffee or snack cake:

Combine 6 apples (peeled,chopped) with 1/4 c sugar and 5 tsp cinnamon. Set aside.

In another bowl, mix 3-1/2c ap flour, 2c sugar, 4 tsp baking powder. Make a well in the center and pour in 1 c oil, 1 c sour cream or plain yogurt, 3/4 cup orange juice, and 2 Tbsp vanilla extract. Stir until blended.

Spoon 1/3 of the batter into a 12 cup greased bundt pan. Spoon the 1/2 apples on top (discard any liquid) making sure they don't touch the sides of the pan. Spoon another 1/3 of the batter and top with apples. Finish with the remaining batter. Bake at 375F for 45 minutes. Cover with foil to prevent excess browning and bake another 20 to 25 minutes until done. Cool 20 minutes before turning out of the pan.

I used to prepare eggless cakes by adding coke or soda. It comes out the same way a chocolate cake with eggs comes out. Even we used to add fanta, which gave a nice orange color to it. Sounds little funny. But, you can try it out in small batch..

Google "crazy cake" - it's an old chocolate cake recipe. Very easy and delicious.

It's also called "wacky cake" or "depression cake". It contains neither milk, eggs or butter and is therefore fairly economical to make.
It can turn out rather dry if you make it all in the pan you're going to cook it in however (this is suggested in a lot of the recipes), so make it in a bowl. It's also much more moist if you add two tablespoons of hershey's chocolate syrup to the mix.
My mum adds orange zest, my dad adds fresh chopped cranberries or tops with rhubarb sauce.
It's a very versatile and quick recipe.
