Egg Free Desserts

I know there is already a thread for a dessert that is a bit different than the usual fare, but I am looking specifically for one without eggs. My friend is allergic. I had hoped to do something a little more interesting than an apple pie, not that theyaren't good. I'm going to search but I don't think folk often consider posting 'egg free' on baking. We have no problems with butter or gluten here. I'm just so so happy with Ener-G egg replacer for many things.

there's a vegetarian site called Chefinyou.com that has a lot of recipes.. They even have a page for what to use instead of egg in recipes http://chefinyou.com/egg-substitutes-cooking/

Tarte Tatin - buttery, caramelized upside down apple tart - is delicious and pretty impressive looking. (And easier to make than it looks.) No eggs. Here's a good classic apple one: http://smittenkitchen.com/2008/10/mollys-apple-tarte-tatin/ Patricia Wells has a recipe for a great pear one - http://weekendloafer.com/tag/patriciawells/

You could top it with a scoop of Philadelphia ice cream - also not made with eggs; or of course whipped cream, maybe flavored with a little vanilla.

Blech, I meant to say NOT so happy with Ener-G egg replacer, but I haven't put the effort into trying other subs (and I usually don't have to for most people.) I decided to do an apple/pear tart I've made before, with almond/orange/cinnamon cream and struel. I do have to use Ener- for the almond cream but it works for stickiness and adhesion not volume, so I think I will work fine here.

Antionia, I will check out your tart. Thanks for the vegan tip Syrioni, we aren't vegan but if that tag brings up recipes then great and I will think to tag mine too when appropriate. Opps I've never put a recipe up, so never mind. Just hotline/pickle. But I'd like to try some of your suggestions, just too late for today, I had to go to work late.

My vegan (eggless) pumpkin pie. You can use the filling in a regular crust if you don't want to make it gluten-free:

In your recipe search, try using "vegan" instead of "eggless." I think you'll find quite a few desserts.

Here is one you could try for something a little different. http://www.food52.com/recipes/7621_ginger_pears_in_a_pool_of_honeyed_vanilla_custard

This sounds wonderful to me and I will try it this winter, but the custard has 3 egg yolks. Technically she can eat the yolk but prefers not to becauce of being forced to as a child and because of the trouble of removing all the egg white. She is not much a fan of ginger but she loves pears, so when I have time I'' see if I can do a variation. For me, I' love it as is.

Shoot! Missed the eggs in the custard. The poached pears alone are delicious.

I know I've seen egg-free chocolate cake before. You might try looking for depression-era recipes because eggs were scarce back then.

Yeah, I've made that--called wacky cake sometimes. It is just okay. More like an everyday snack cake. Thanks though.
