Thanks breadandwine. Interesting point about eggs being gratuitously added to recipes. Especially bread type ones. DSs are allergic to eggs and it's hard to find baking recipes sometimes. I am not keen on egg replacer powder or recipes which start wanting apple sauce etc.
The problem I find is that searching for egg free recipes mean finding stuff that assumes you want to be dairy free as well, which I don't.
I was just looking for an egg free recipe so thanks. Out of interest what does adding egg to the dough do? Is it just a richer taste or does the dough behave differently?
Katisha I think you'd have to a side by side comparison to see if there was any difference. I suspect there wouldn't be any, TBH, the flavour from spices and fruit would overwhelm any taste coming through from the egg.
