You will need an egg replacer for this cake, we use flaxseed eggs.

What are flaxseed eggs? 

A flaxseed egg is a vegan egg substitute, that is made from ground flax seeds and water. It’s completely vegan, gluten free, paleo, Plant Based, whole30, and low in carbs just like real eggs. Ground flaxseed soaked in water creates a binding property that replaces eggs for baking purposes!

  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed + 3 tablespoons water = 1 egg.

How do you make a Bundt cake without eggs?

All you have to do make a lovely bundt cake with our eggs is find a suitable egg replacement for vegan baking. There are a wide variety of eggless binding agents such as bananas, applesauce, and chia eggs. However when baking something like a bundt cake you probably want to use homemade flaxseed eggs or a pre made binding product for baking. For example Vegan Egg Replacer by Ener-G which has ingredients like: potato starch and tapioca starch flour.Vegan vanilla lemon bundt cake gluten free easy recipe
