Ran out of eggs, any substitutions

If I want to make a cake, or muffins. What is an effective way to substitute eggs? (it is cake mix in a box, like Duncan Hines/Pillsbury/Great Value)

Is there a simple web page that has substitutions of other items like if you're short on oil, milk, baking powder, yeast, etc...

I would use this old wacky cake recipe from the depression or see how the items I have marked in bold type compare to the indredients you need to add to your cake mix. The baking soda and vinegar provide the lift. I little extra oil and water replace some of the egg also.

Good luck!

Yield: 1 13x9 cake
Ingredients
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 cups water
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 tablespoons cocoa
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt


Directions
Heat oven to 350*.
Stir together first 5 ingredients.
Add flour, sugar, soda and salt.
Stir until mixed well.
Pour into greased and floured 9x13 baking pan.
Bake for 40 minutes.

Great minds think alike, Aunt Bea! I have an old cookery book with wartime rationing recipes in it and there's a very similar one to yours which I was going to post.
