     I use this as an egg substitue.....mix it together in a small bowl and then add it to your cake mix.

    1 1/2 tablepoons water

    1 1/2 tablespoons oil (I use coconut oil, but you can use whatever you like)

    1 teapsoon of baking soda

    Flax seed can be used as a substitute.  I have never tried it though.  Here is link on how to do it.

    Pureed Fruit As Egg Substitute

    Egg Substitute:
    Pureed Fruit:Mashed bananas, unsweetened applesauce, pureed prunes, plumped raisins and softened dates are some of the ways how pureed fruits can be used as an egg substitute.

    How to replace?
    1/4 cup for each egg. Increase leavening by 25-50%. Bake items slightly longer, if necessary.

    I've done the pureed fruit substitution that Heather suggested, and it works really well.  I used applesauce, but as her post says, you can use other pureed fruits.
