    llynettew18: Seeing how egg whites tend to dry out cakes/cupcakes, I suggest to decrease the amount of egg whites and see if that helps.

    I made these for my niece who has a milk allergy. Turns out, the cupcakes are pretty gross. I recommend looking for a different recipe. The cupcakes are too stiff and the glaze is very tart.

    This would be great for my son, who has a milk allergy, except that he also has an egg allergy. I understand how to substitute for eggs when they are binders with applesauce, but how would you substitute for all the egg whites and whole eggs in this recipe?

    I'm supposing real milk is all right for those of us allergic to soy, though? LOL

    Glad to see recipes for those who are Lactose Intolerant.
