Can mayonnaise be substituted for eggs and oil in baking?
NO! It's already concentrated. Just go to your nearest shop and buy them. If you want to try it, go ahead. :P

Mayonnaise is an emulsion of egg yolks, oil and seasoning if you try cooking with mayonnaise it will split and spoil your recipie. Some cake recipes call for mayonnaise, but …it substitutes for egg and some of the fat in the recipe, not just the eggs
You can buy Ener-G egg replacer at a health food store. It's a powder that you mix with a little warm water. I have baked with it many times and you can't even tell that there… are no eggs in the recipe.
Yes You Can!! There is no difference in the taste at all and you use the same amount of mayo per oil. Yummy.
no, sorry but you cant
I'm sorry, but you can't substitute oil and water for eggs.
Applesauce is a good substitute. Other pureed fruits may also work. Some use yogurt, butter, margarine, egg whites, sugar, or honey as substitutes. Many low-fat products make …up for the fat with sugars, making the product higher-calorie than the original.
Using mayonnaise as a substitute for eggs and oil in any cake mixture won't work since the eggs have been incorporated into the oil in an emulsifying process: both ingredients… now have totally different characteristics and will react very differently from the original, separate ingredients when used in baking; the eggs have lost their 'setting' ability, for example, and the oil isn't oil, as such, any more. In the same way, while you can make scrambled eggs or omelet by cooking beaten eggs in hot oil, pouring mayonnaise into a hot pan won't give you anything like scrambled eggs or an omelet. If you absolutely must bake a cake and can't obtain either eggs or oil in time, perhaps you could look at what you do have in the fridge and pantry, and work something out from there. Otherwise, wait until you are able to go shopping, or order online, to obtain the ingredients you need. Perhaps you aren't able to eat eggs and dairy foods? In that case, you'll need to research recipes suitable for people who can't or don't wish to include these ingredients in their diet.
There is no substitution for eggs when cooking
Flaxseed meal is supposed to make a great egg substitute for most recipes. According to Bob's Red Mill package , for 1 egg, mix 1 Tbsp. flaxseed meal with 3 Tbsp. water and… let sit for 2 minutes. Add as you would an egg in recipe.
In Ingredient Substitutions
depends on what type of cake... but most likely yea
i don't think so..
Mayonnaise is basically oil and eggs. You would have to experiment with the amount. Since there is oil in the Mayo, you would cut back on any oil called for in the recipe.
You can use silken tofu to replace eggs in mayonnaise.
