CAKE
1 box cake mix (*Duncan Hines many are dairy free, always read the label for allergens)
1 1/3 cups water
1/3 cup oil
6 teaspoons Ener-G egg replacer mixed with 6 Tablespoons cold water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 pan or two 8” cake pans, or line 2 cupcake tins.
In a large mixing bowl, blend together all ingredients; beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour into greased pan, spread out evenly. Bake for 30-35 minutes, 15-20 minutes for cupcakes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool. Frost if desired. NOTE: Unfrosted cake freezes well. Handy if you want to freeze cupcakes and send in to school as needed.

BROWNIES

1 box brownie mix (*Duncan Hines regular is dairy free, always read the label)
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup oil
4 heaping teaspoons Ener-G egg replacer mixed with 1/4 cup cold water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 11x13 or 10x12 inch pan.
In a mixing bowl, stir all ingredients, about 50 strokes, breaking up any large lumps. Pour into greased pan, spread out evenly. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool. Frost if desired. Unfrosted brownies freeze well.
NOTE: the water and oil quantities are not a typo. I say that because the brownie box lists the opposite proportions, 1/2 cup oil and 1/4 cup water. Those do not work well with this adaptation, which happily is much lower in fat and calories.

Hi May! Those mixes, do they have "may contain" for eggs?

I use Duncan Hines. No eggs, no may contain. Egg is my son's worst allergen, so cake has always been a labor of love.

Great link! Since some of the mixes contain milk, and a few have soy, I always recommend people read the label every time.

I am very glad for this list.....I like to bake from scratch....but as dd is getting older it is nice to know she has some options that aren't "old fashioned"....maybe I'll buy a couple to have on hand. Thanks for the hook up people!

I'm with you - generally I prefer to bake from scratch. But over time, my teenager and other folks (like grandmoms and aunts) were looking for how to adapt box mixes. A few vegan friends wanted to know too.

Without the Ener-G Egg Replacer, there are still several other substitutes that work with the cake mixes. But none of them worked well for the brownie mix. That one took many attempts to get right. It's always nice to have more options. :D

I've successfully used Duncan Hines mixes for my milk-allergic son over the years - Betty Crocker used to have a few too, but they seem to have changed and now almost all contain modified milk. While my ds can have baked milk now, he definitely could not up to about 2 years ago (last anaphylaxis), so I can vouch for the safety of the Duncan Hines cakes for milk-allergic!
