Use 2oz of butter, sugar and flour. The usual ratio is one egg to every 2oz of all the other ingredients. You should be able to make about 8 or 9 cakes with a one egg mix.

yep, just halve the other ingredients. Alternatively I have made it with 1 egg and added some milk to the usual 4oz butter sugar etc.

You could still do a 4oz mixture with one egg - eggs vary in size anyway. Just add enough water or milk to make soft, dropping consistency.
The average family won't notice!

Probably too late but if you only have 1 egg you could make muffins instead.

Use the weight of the egg for the other ingredients.
