 I have white betty crocker cake mix, I was going to make cupcakes. The recipe calls for 3 eggs, and I just realized I am out...are there any substitutions I can use that wont affect the taste too much?

Here's a bump.  I'm not sure about substituting eggs.  I have substituted oil though.

You can take a box mix and add a can of soda (for white cake you would use Sprite or some other clear soda, for choclate you can use a dark soda..Coke, Pepsi, Dr Pepper, or even Cherry flavored drinks). Don't add anything else at all..just the cake mix and soda. It comes out fluffy and moist. I have done this in the past for my youngest DD that has lots of food allergies.

That's interesting. How much soda do you add. A can or a bottle?

Just a regular 12 oz can of soda. =)

You are very welcome. I first read about doing it online somewhere when I was searching for cake recipes for my youngest DD. I was so happy when I found out I could do this...but then we found out she had more allergies than we knew of, so she couldn't even have the cake mixes anymore. =/

That's an awesome tip.  I'll have to try that.
