Default Recipes for Vegetarian/Vegan baked goods

Ok, so I'm looking for some good vegetarian recipes for baked goods. I've been getting into baking for my girlfriend and while I certainly enjoy the fact that she gets whole trays of brownies and lemon bars to herself I'd like to be able to bake something I get to eat as well. I'm not vegan so I'm fine with dairy, but I won't eat eggs. However, most of the recipes I've found through some quick googling are vegan. I'm not averse to vegan baked goods but ideally I'd only like to substitute the eggs.

I never had brownies before and my mom came across a way to make brownies without eggs. Get a brownie box mix (read ingredients first though) and get a can of black beans. Blend up the black beans juice and all an then mix in the box of brownie mix. Bake as per the instructions. They are good and a little less sinful that regular brownies. I never had brownies before this because brownies were never really easily made replaced by eggs.

Also a good eggs substitute for baking can be 1-2 tablespoons of yogurt per egg. And this stuff: http://www.amazon.com/Ener-G-Foods-R.../dp/B001GVIRKM (This stuff is EXCELLENT for all baked goods i have tried. i do the yogurt thing in a pinch)

eta: I don't have any specific recipes, i just follow a regular recipe and replace the eggs. (been eggless my whole life)

Here's an egg substitute designed specifically for pastries and baked goods (thanks to Abbot George Burke of Holy Protection Monastery):

1/4 cup flax seeds
3/4 cup water

Grind the flax seeds to a powder and mix with the water in a blender. Refrigerate what you don't use, but use it up within 24 hours: it doesn't keep well.

hmm interesting. I might have to try that since we're trying to get more flax into our diet since it's high in something we're missing..(i forget what)

My best friend makes this cake as a lo-cal option but it does taste awesome. She found it on the Hungry Girl website, I noticed that there are a couple of other egg-less cakes there as well, link below.

"Cake Mix + Canned Pure Pumpkin


Ingredients:
One 18.25-oz. box moist-style cake mix
One 15-oz. can pure pumpkin

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Combine ingredients in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly -- batter will be VERY thick -- and transfer to a baking pan sprayed with nonstick spray; bake in the oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. (Refer to cake-mix box for pan size and approximate bake time.)


Best Flavor: Devil's food cake mix is CLEARLY a classic choice. But spice cake mix... WOW. Yellow and white cake mixes, sadly, do not work as well."

When baking for vegan friends, I just substitute 1 heaping tablespoon soy flour for each egg. You may want to increase fat/oil just a smidge, because they tend to be a little dry without the egg.

Also, eggs are awesome.

Vinegar and baking soda work as a substitute for eggs and will help with leavening, too. Use a tablespoon vinegar (white or cider) and a teaspoon baking soda for each egg you replace in the recipe.

I haven't done it myself, but I remember watching my mom test it out when I was a child. It creates a chemical reaction, and I think she mixed them in a liquid (glass) measuring cup just before she poured the frothy concoction into the batter. It will bubble and expand, as I recall.

Since apples are in season, I've been craving my Apple Spice cake....I have made it without the butter (my favorite variation is posted) but not without eggs. However, since other people have given you substitutes, I'm sure it would come out fine. It's hard to kill this recipe...it tastes like apple pie, but in cake form.

I've tried the canned pumpkin and cake mix thing, and it's not bad. I prefer to make a cake from scratch though.

Apple Spice Cake

Preheat oven to 350.

Ingredients:

2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
teaspoon ground ginger (optional)
1 teaspoon nutmeg (or tsp fresh ground nutmeg)
teaspoon salt

cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 t vanilla
4 eggs
cup applesauce
1 cup yogurt plain, low fat yogurt

1 teaspoon baking soda
1 Tablespoon warm water

4 apples , chopped into smallish pieces

1. Butter and flour a 9 x 13 pan.
2. In a small bowl, mix together flour, cinnamon, allspice, ginger,nutmeg and salt. Set aside.
3. Cream butter and sugars together. Add vanilla and eggs, blend. Add applesauce and yogurt, mix till smooth.
4. Mix baking soda in water, then add to the butter mixture, mix.
5. Add flour to the butter mixture, blend till smooth, then fold in chopped apples.
6. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.


For a richer cake, use 1 cup butter, and leave out the applesauce. For a lower fat cake, double applesauce, leave out the butter.
