    How stupid of me! Has anyone ever done this?

    I would just add some more liquid - measure what the one egg is and just add that much more liquid. I'm sure there are some other ideas out there but that would be my suggestion in a hurry. I know you can use soy flour mixed with water as an egg substitute but Most people do not keep soy flour around the house.
    I would probably use sour cream or plain yogurt to substitute for the egg as it would add a bit of "richness".

    I found this on a website:

    ONE (1) egg equals any one of the following:

    2 Tbs. flour
    ½ tsp. oil
    ½ tsp. baking powder
    2 Tbs. liquid

    2 Tbs. water
    1 Tbs. oil
    ½ tsp. baking powder

    1 Tbs. flaxseed* (ground in coffee mill)
    3 Tbs. warm water

    1 Tbs. gelatin or fruit pectin
    3 Tbs. warm water

    Yogurt, mashed banana, applesauce, pumpkin, or other pureed fruit or vegetables are good replacements for eggs in muffins or cakes.

    To replace eggs in casseroles, burgers, or loaves try mashed vegetables, tahini, (sesame seed butter) nut butters or rolled oats.

    * Flaxseed is a wonderful source of Biomega Three Fatty acids that our bodies need and usually don’t get enough of.

    You need to add some liquid of some sort to make up for the egg, like Tria said. 1/4 cup will equal one average egg. If you have Egg Beaters, you cnn use that. 1/4 Cup of egg beaters equals the one egg. You could use milk or water, otherwise the brownie's will be on the dry side.
