🥕There are different types of egg replacers you can use. My first choice is this one by Ener-G. I have also had very good success simply using carbonated water. Just use slightly less than 1/2 C carbonated water instead of 2 eggs in this recipe.🥕For those who want to reduce the amount of fat or oil in cooking, I have used applesauce as a one to one replacement to butter in the cake batter, without dramatically altering the taste or texture of the cake. I will say butter does bump up the moistness and richness of the cake, so if you want the ultimate experience with this recipe, stick with vegan butter. This is our favorite brand - Miyoko's Creamery.
