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.

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.

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.

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

Coconut-Lemon Macaroons (vegan):

Blackberry Dark Chocolate cupcakes (vegan):

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

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.

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... 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.
