I am in desperate need of any recipes for cookies, cake or muffins that are free of dairy, gluten, egg and soy.

If anyone can help me, I would be so grateful!

My ds has those allergies too, I have used Bob's Red Mill products with some success. Right now we are stationed overseas so I am seriously limited in options. I use milled flax seed for egg replacer in many things (plus he gets some extra Omega 3's that way!) and I have used EnerG Egg replacer in the past with success (but don't have it here). I just sub rice milk for milk, and I have also used spectrum shortening (when I could get it back in the states) in place of butter/margarine. I used a cherrybrook kitchens cake mix and frosting mix (used coconut oil I think in that one, added a coconut flavor) that came out great too. I haven't baked "from scratch" really because I didn't want to invest in a bunch of different flours and then not like some of them, and I don't like to spend a lot of time experimenting. I just inquired about domata flour which you can use 1:1 for regular wheat flour. For school, I used to just keep a box of Enjoy Life Foods cookies in his classroom to eat when there was a birthday or other celebration. That was easier than sending a frozen cupcake, though he wasn't opposed to that. He liked the Bob's Red Mill brownie mix as well.

Allergygrocer.com lets you enter in your allergies and then does a search on available products. When I did a search using your allergens, it came back with this list

If you see something there that's interesting, order from them or find it in you local health food store. I know the store by me carries some of these items.

I bake without dairy, egg, and soy all the time. It's pretty easy to get decent results too. In place of eggs, there are a few other common substitutes besides flax meal which many say do work well. I've used applesauce with success, and nut meals such as almond, pecan, or walnut can work depending how the egg is being used. I really like coconut oil in recipes, and although I haven't yet tried coconut milk, I'm sure it would work in place of cow's milk. Many times I just use water.

The texture which soy flour lends is perhaps the trickiest to sub, but nut meal will provide a nice moistness.

So far I've been using guar gum, and it seems to work well. I haven't tried xanthan yet, but from what I've read, guar is supposed to be a bit better for cakes, muffins, etc. Other thickeners/emulsifiers to consider are agar, pectin, clearjel, cornstarch, and arrowroot.

Here's a recipe for orange walnut bread, which should work just fine for muffins. Just cut down on the baking time a bit. Poster subbed items so it's gluten-free, dairy-free (uses ghee, but makes alt. suggestions farther down the thread), egg-free, soy-free...

I haven't tried this particular recipe, but I've had one very similar. Oh my, was it wonderful!!! So yummy!!

The products themselves might not contain the allergens, but if it's a mix, they sometimes require the allergen to bake it. I wish they would list the added ingredients needed on all of the products. They do on some, but not all.
