Pureed fruits like mashed bananas, pears, prunes, dates and applesauce can be used to substitute both eggs and fat in a baking recipe.  Dried fruits like prunes, dates and apricots can be soaked in warm water and then pureed smoothly before use.  To make it easier baby food available in jars can be used too.

It works well in cakes, quick breads and brownies and is recommended to bake it a few minutes extra.  Use 1/4 cup of the pureed fruit to replace each egg.  It is also suggested to increase the quantity of baking powder slightly (1/4-1/2 teaspoon) while using pureed fruits.

Check here for recipes using pureed fruit as an egg substitute.

I actually never did think about utilizing pureed fruits as egg substitutes. The only thing I'm a tad concerned with is that certain fruits will not have the consistency of egg. I would think bananas, mangoes and other "thick" fruits would have a similar consistency, but what about berries when mushed together? I guess I'll have to simply try.

VeggieGirl, the pureed fruit can be used as an egg substituted if the eggs in a recipe is used for moisture or as a binding agent.  I can swear by unsweetened applesauce and pureed prunes (the baby food jars work just fine.)  The only think you would have to do is slightly alter the quantity of baking powder so that it mimics the lightness given by eggs also.

Nice, another way of getting rid of eggs. As usual, thanks for the valuable post Madhuram. I'll give it a try.

Fruits are rich in vitamins...and pureed fruits will be a great option to feed babies instead of eggs. They are preservative free. i like all the fruits.
