egg replacer in bread

does anyone have any experience replacing eggs in non-vegan bread recipes?

i'm not talking about any specific bread - i assume applesauce or banana would work well for sweeter breads, but for the rest, i don't know what to use. i highly doubt powdered egg replacer would work for this purpose, and the thought of using tofu in bread grosses me out.

suggestions?

I'm craving craving craving baklava (spelling?)
does anyone have any good recipes?

i live in Guangzhou, China....so i can't get anything too extravagant...even if it's not exactly baklava but something similar...i'd appreciate it.


will X-post to vegan recipes

My husband and I have been adapting our diet to a more vegan-like diet in the past month. One of the items I am devasted to give up on is.... MIRACLE WHIP! You see, i grew up on that stuff. When i was a meat eater, i'd dip my steak in that stuff. I often would use it in my sandwiches and with tortellini and so on. I am/was a total miracle whip junkie. I always disliked mayo, i found it really nasty tasting. I'm wondering if anyone knows of any vegan mayo that I could try out and see if it meets my liking. I'm also wondering what it's about miracle whip that gives off such a zesty taste to it and if it'd be possible to find that ingredient (assuming it's vegan friendly) and add it to a vegan mayo.. Hmm ideas, ideas.

Anyhoo, any vegan mayo fiends out there?
