This is my very own variation of a danish recipe. It is egg-free! You get 12-14 Danishes.
Step 1: What You Need
Here is what you need for your egg-free danishes:
1/3 cup (60 ml) of milk
1 pack of yeast
4 Tbsp vegetable shortening
3 cups (350 gr) flour,
1 tbs baking powder
1/4 to 1/2 cup (50 - 100gr) sugar.
1 cup jam
1 cup mascarpone
mug or glass
Step 2: Dough
First you have to make the dough. You can use a ready made dough (that might contain egg) but as always I prefer to make my own dough. Here is the recipe without eggs.
Heat ¼ cup (60 ml) of milk to 100 degree fahrenheit (37°C) and mix one pack of yeast into the milk and set asaide.
Mix 3 cups (350 gr) flour, one tbs baking powder and 1/4 to 1/2 cup (50 - 100gr) sugar. The amount of sugar depends on your jam. If your jam is sweet you don'd need that much sugar.
Combine yeast, 1/2 cup of milk 3 Tbsp shortening (butter) and add it to the flour. Mix the ingredients with your kitchen maschine or with your hands.
Use a rolling pin to make an even layer.
Use a glass or mug to cut out circles.
Put the circles on a baking sheet on a baking tray.
Step 3: Mascarpone
Your fist layer on the top is mascarpone. Use a spoon to spread some mascarpone onto the circles.
Bake the danishes without any topping for 6 min. Let them cool down a bit, cut them like a breadroll and spread the mascarpone and jam between the two layers. Now put them back into the oven until they are golden.

Mix the mascarpone and the jam together and use it as the toppin or filling.
Step 4: Jam
The next layer is jam. You can use any jam you like. I used blackberry jam but it tastes just as wounderful with rasberry jam or any other jam.
Put the jam into a pan and heat it up. Make sure it doesn´t burn :) Now spread the warm jam onto the mascarpone.
Step 5: Bakers Gonna Bake, Bake, Bake...
Now bake the danishes for 10-12 min at 400 °F (200°C) or until they are golden.
Step 6: Danishes Without Eggs
There you go - Danishes without eggs-
