I'm hoping that we're still months or a year or more away from wheat, sweetener of any kind (honey, agave, stevia, etc.) and I don't want to roll that stuff out for the first birthday "cake." I've thought of just doing a parfait with yogurt, mashed bananas, diced mango, etc. but for tradition it would be lovely to have something "cake" looking.
So ... this "cake" does not have to taste good to anyone else. I'm making it just for my baby and she only eats veggies and whole grains (quinoa, etc.), and lentils, and tofu, and yogurt, and fruit, so I really think anything remotely "cake" or even "bread" textured to her would be very exciting and different.
I've been googling away but I can't find a simple recipe for a cake using, say, garbanzo flour or brown rice flour, maybe yogurt and/or applesauce and some fresh fruit.
I'm a *terrible* baker even when I have a recipe, so there's no way I could experiment and come up with something which would work (my worst baking memory is traveling abroad and going out on a special shopping trip with my hosts and making them a banana bread that was truly brick hard when it came out of the oven). Anyone have a recipe or have any thoughts about where I might find one? Looking for gluten free, and no sweetener of any sort except for the fruit itself, and does not have to taste delicious to the adult palate .
Thanks SO much!!!
