Help us out by telling what you have to work with, i.e. fruit, eggs, milk, butter, etc and maybe your skill level. There was recently a posting for a chocolate cake that is mixed in the same pan that it is baked in and does not require eggs. It is easy, you can search the hotline to find it - as it was recently posted under vegan chocolate cake. Good luck

Do you have powdered sugar and an electric handmixer? If you do, you can make this pound cake:

You can use regular all-purpose flour and omit the almonds (you don't really need it). You can halve this recipe or bake in 2 round or square cake pans. I've done all these things and it's still the best pound cake I've ever made or eaten.

Do you also have flour, milk and sugar? And a hand whisk? Then make pancakes - just mix 3 eggs, 1/2 cup (120 grams) flour, 1 cup (250 ml) milk, a few tbsp sugar and 1 tbsp melted butter. This is for large, thin crêpe like pancakes. You can store leftover batter in the fridge for a few days.

My jam bars are easy: https://food52.com/recipes.... You can use any jam inside (the almond flavoring only goes well with sour cherry or apricot jam, so if you use something different, like raspberry or strawberry jam, leave it out). You can mix it with your hands. Scotch shortbread is also super easy and super delicious: butter, sugar and flour. If you have Joy of Cooking, that's a good one to try (the recipe is also on line).

You can bake apples if you have them. Butter the bottom of a pan (Corning Ware or Pyrex or any oven-proof ceramic pan). Cut a thin slice off the top of each apple, and with a small sharp knife dig in and remove as much of the stem and core as you can. You can brush the cut part with butter and maybe a little honey. Heat the oven to 350º. Put the apples in and bake until tender(if juices start to burn on the bottom of the pan, add a drop or two of water and lower heat. (stick your sharp knife in through the top of one to see if it is tender). Your kitchen will smell wonderful. Serve warm, with cream poured on if you have it.

Cut up some firm fruit like apples, pears, strawberries, grapes, bananas for dipping. Make a dip of equal parts sour cream and powdered sugar which you mix together with a tiny drop of pink food coloring. (I use 8 oz of sour cream and fill the sour cream tub with powdered sugar and mix together). Enjoy.

Another is to wash a bunch of red grapes (enough for each person). Mix brown sugar and sour cream or plain yogurt. (Not a lot but just enough to lightly coat the grapes.) Mix in the grapes and serve in individual bowls.

This is a cookie I copied from somewhere a while back, haven't tried it.
1c+2 Tb. creamy peanut butter
1c brown sugar
1 egg
1Tb. vanilla
1/2 c. cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
You basically just beat all this together and chill thoroughly. Should make 13 large cookies- form cookies, flatten slightly and bake at 350 for 8-10 min.
