Eggless Cake RecipesDessert

This is my first post here! I am looking for an eggless cake or cake that uses an egg replacer, such as Ener-G. My son is allergic to eggs, amongst other things, and I really need to find a great cake. It doesn't matter if it is a white or chocolate cake or any other flavor. I just need to find some great recipes! The ones I have tried are a little lacking. Other than the Wacky cake which is pretty tasty.
I am a home baker and not a professional so you may want to keep that in mind. I am also planning on using a Wilton cake pan, if that matters. (does that show just what a novice I am??? )

You can substitute ground flax seeds made into a paste for your eggs -- obviously not for any sort of rise, but the richness of the flax (oil?) really makes for a good cake.
The ratio that I was working with was something like 1 Tablespoon ground flax with just enough water to make a thick paste equals one egg. I did the whole thing in the blender and then added to my batter. Seriously, it was not bad at all. (And I was working off of a basic butter cake recipe.)
Maybe someone with more expertise could explain what it is about flax seeds that makes a good egg replacement? An added bonus, flax seeds are great for you!
