    Logan, I watched the video and will definitely not show it to our hens. Egg substitutes? They would be so offended.
    If you want to make a pound cake, use eggs. If you are allergic to eggs, don't eat pound cake.
    Interesting all the trouble these two cooks went to to make subpar pound cake. As the saying goes, if it ain't broke don't fix it!

    It might come in handy if someone doesn't have any eggs.

    I appreciate this video Logan. Thank you for sharing it.

    My son as an infant had an egg allergy, as well as peanut, soy, wheat and dairy. This was before today's times of so many alternatives.

    I worked very hard as a Momma to give him every available opportunity to enjoy food that others had. Egg free cakes, pancakes, crackers, breads etc. As he grew, he outgrew many allergies but it was baby steps. Xanthum gum was my friend. :) As well as applesauce and bananas.

    I myself have to bake creatively due to food allergies. I have a friend who is an adult with an egg allergy. I always try to be creative for her also so that she can enjoy some semblance of what others take for granted.

    Those tricks came in handy when we were cut off from supplies for three weeks Logan. You're right. We don't always have eggs and it is great to know how to comprimise and appreciate the efforts of doing without.

    Melody oh boy I hear ya on the allergies. When my son had allergies to the additives and food coloring added into foods. That’s when I ordered beef from a near by cattle farm and started growing my own food.

    Melody thanks for your reply and good news that your son outgrew his allergies. Over here we've had trouble with egg supply at the supermarkets due to bird flu. The free range hens had to be kept indoors, now that's gone but still have trouble with supply. Have to buy packs of 6 eggs instead of 12 and that can be more expensive.

    Logan same shortage due to bird flu here too.
    I bought 2 dozen eggs today. Just glad I didn’t have to take a 2nd mortgage out on my house. Grocery store prices are crazy as all food containers fresh and frozen are shrinking and prices going up.
    I have learned to be more creative with left overs and recipes .
    I wish I had started a veggie plot this year.

    Pacnorwest, yes the same with prices here too and the size of packets.
    I don't bother with trying to grow veg it's to much trying to compete with the slugs and snails. But i grow my own fruit which is a bonus and not so much trouble.
