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.
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.
