Carolyn would like somthing "cake like." I have no idea what to make! Since we have no eggs I am thinking this will be hard to do. We do have baking soda, baking powder, flour(AP and whole wheat), yeast, granulated sugar. We do not have eggs or cocoa. Can any one help with somthing "cake like"?

No orange juice? From a review. . .I really liked this recipe. I did not use orange juice, but used 1 cup of water + 1 T white vinegar. I decreased the butter to 3/4 cup, and I increased the vanilla to 1 T. It made 20 cupcakes, and my 8 yr old daughter and her friends loved them!

Here is a link for egg substitutes if you find a recipe you'd like to make with eggs.

Seamus, the shortening would probably work in the cake, but I don't think it would work in the sweetened condensed milk sub.

I would also decrease the amount to 3/4 cup. . .

Maybe you could borrow some butter from a neighbor? I know my neighbors and I try to have each others back for "shortages":)

Powdered skim milk, sugar, boiling water and melted butter are combined, but not cooked, in this substitute for canned condensed milk.

This recipe if from the l930's. My Grandmother gave it to my Mother and she gave it to me. Now I am a grandmother and passed it down to my kids. It's really good. You don't have to dirty your mixer for this one, just a big bowl.

I use the same recipe as above but use white sugar instead of brown. No eggs and uses shortening.

This is a spice type cake. It is from the depression era or war time rationing.
