Hello Janet,

The first one below is the only one I could find using egg-replacer. There are mayo recipes below without either one, though.

Once you eliminate both eggs and soy products, you have to be very flexible regarding mayonnaise substitutes. There may be some commercial products available. You might try health food stores, Whole Foods, Wild Oats, etc.

Below are some recipes that are both eggless and soy-free. I'd try the French Mayonnaise recipe first.


Egg Free Mayonnaise 

6 teaspoons Ener-G Egg Replacer (Packed)
4 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons vinegar
2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 cup oil

Blend until smooth.

Mix together:
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. melted margarine
1/2 c. sugar
8 tbsp. milk

Mix together:
1 tsp. mustard
2 tbsp. cornstarch

Mix well first five ingredients.  Place in double boiler, heat through, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and stir in last three ingredients which have been already mixed together.
Cook until thick and smooth using an egg beater (or low speed hand mixer). 
French  Mayonnaise

1/2 c. oil
1 tbsp. dry mustard
Dash of pepper
1/4 c. evaporated milk
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. lemon juice

  In shaker mix oil, milk, mustard, salt and pepper.  Shake 7 or 8 times. 
Add lemon juice and shake well.  Makes 3/4 cup.
Eggless  Mayonnaise

1 med. Irish potatoes
1/2 c. vinegar
1 tsp. salt
1 pt. Wesson oil
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 tsp. sugar

  Boil potatoes, mash while hot.  Add salt and mustard.  Add very slowly the oil, constantly beating.
Season with Tabasco, onion juice and Worcestershire sauce to taste.  A bit of turmeric may be added 
to give proper color.
Eggless  Mayonnaise

3/4 c. water
1/4 c. cider vinegar
1 1/2 tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. dry mustard
1 c. powdered milk
2 c. oil

  Combine all but oil in blender, then add oil slowly while blender 
continues to run.

Hello Helena,

Gordas or gorditas (the smaller version) are thick hand-made tortillas .They are grilled or browned in a skillet, then split like an English muffin and filled with some type of a stewed meat, or chorizo and potato, etc. They can also be filled with the usual taco or fajita fillings. In central Mexico they're filled with chicharrón prensado (spicy stewed pork rinds) to make "gordita de chicharrón".

Hello Mr. P.  
I am looking for a pie recipe that was so popular and made at the Nut Tree Restaurant 
in Vacaville, California which is no longer in business.   The pie had raisins, nuts, 
brown sugar and was sorta like a chess pie only much better. Somehow I've misplaced 
the recipe and am hoping you can find it for me.  It's such a wonderful pie.  
Thank you for helping me.

Hello Eve,

Perhaps this is it?


  Nut Tree Chess Pie
  Source: Nut Tree Remembered: The Cookbook by Tara Baumann, Jim Moehrke, Roy Moehrke, 1997 
  (Vacaville Museum, CA - ordering info: 707-447-4513)

  This Nut Tree classic dessert is a great example of a recipe that originated with a satisfied 
customer who wanted to help the young business. Chess Pies were popular mail order items in the 
1940s, and were shipped all over the world. An early menu described it as "A deliciously rich pie 
of walnuts and raisins, a California confection."

  1 cup granulated sugar
  1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  4 tsp flour
  1/2 tsp salt
  1 cup chopped California walnuts or other nuts (or mixed)
  1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
  1/2 cup seedless raisins (plumped in boiling water and drained)
  3 eggs
  2/3 cup milk
  4 tsp butter

  Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

  Combine dry ingredients, nuts, and raisins in mixing bowl. In a smaller bowl beat eggs with fork; 
add milk and melted butter. Stir into dry ingredient mixture, mixing well. Pour into unbaked pie shell. 

  Bake in oven at 300 degrees F for 1 hour and 15 minutes, until a tester inserted in middle of pie 
is removed clean or until filling is set. During the long, slow baking the nuts rise and turn golden 
brown on top of the rich, firmly jelled filling. 

  Serve cold. Keeps will in refrigerator. (In fact, the pie cuts best after cooling for 24 hours.)
