    Applesauce is usually subbed for oil. I think you'd get by with 2 eggs for three, but I know there are also other egg subs on the board...Let me see if I can find them...Hold on, Karen!

    Egg Substitute

    1 teaspoon cornstarch
    3 Tablespoon water

    Substitute for each omitting egg.

    This was tried on several different brands of cake mix including one which called for 3 eggs. There was a slight change of texture, depending on the brand used. [One was slightly dry and crumbly, and another was super moist and tender.] When you need to substitute only one egg, there is no discernible change.
    Naturaly, this will not work with chiffon, sponge or angel food cake when the whipped volume of the eggs is essential.

    I found this on the web, can't remember where, but hope it will be helpful to you. I have listed the source.
