I want to make a recipe that calls for 5 eggs...I usually replace eggs with ground flax but I have never replaced 5 eggs before. Will it still work and taste good?

Since your recipe has no other leavening, flax eggs won't work--your cake would turn out very dense and not risen. Ener-G egg replacer would probably work, or you could look for an egg substitution that uses some baking soda or powder (some examples in this chart: <a href="http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=7678.0" target="_blank">VegWeb egg subs</a>).

usually egg replacer isn't equivelent for >3 eggs, to get the same results.

Thanks for the link, RunnerVeggie. We have an egg allergy in our house, and this link will come in handy.

Sounds pretty much like a pound cake. Have Veganomicom? I've made the pound cake with lemon juice and zest and it was wonderful! Just add poppy seeds!.
