After some research I found that using apple sauce to bind the cake was the most promising route to choose, since I didn’t have any eggs to use instead. The cake came out moist and delicious! I was worried the crumb would be extremely dense but I was pleasantly surprised. It had a very mild apple flavor which was extremely pleasing. The only thing I would change is removing some sugar from the ingredients, may a 1/4 cup; I didn’t take into consideration the sweetness the apple sauce would bring, but it wasn’t overwhelming. This is a great cake for those with an egg allergy! I promise you will be pleased, my family sure was!
