I have replaced with golden syrup when I have been shot of eggs. (Not sure why but it turned out ok and everyone ate the cake.)

Add a splash of full fat milk.

Yes, golden syrup. I have an old recipe book from the Depression years, eggs were in short supply and Golden Syrup is the substitute in cake recipes, 1 dessertspoon per egg.
