anybody got one? it doesn't have to be super-healthy.... just not a cup of sugar and a stick of [fake] butter no milk protein, but everything else is okay.
i'm thinking chocolate, but am open to all flavors! :D
My 8 month old is dairy free, and I don't want to look at what goes into a dairy free cake. My plan is to get a kosher non-dairy cake. Not healthy, but I'll close my eyes, and what I don't know won't hurt me this one day.
Another option (but it's more of a snack cake, not a fancy frosting cake) is a wacky cake. Wait..just googled it, and it looks like some people frost them (I've only ever had them unfrosted, in a 9x12). They do taste good. Not so healthy, but eh, it's cake. http://www.realcountryliving.com/wacky-cake-recipe.html
I made the first recipe listed for my DD's first bday and everyone loved it - it was kind of muffin-y! It does call for soy milk, but I think there are others listed that have no dairy/substitutes needed. I also made the cream cheese based frosting that's a little farther down the page and that was a hit, too.
Wacky cake is good stuff. And I made a fancy frosted, sculpted pirate ship out of it; it works great for that sort of thing. You can make a dairy free icing with palm oil shortening and/or non-hydrogenated margarine like Earth Balance or Nucoa and powdered sugar, or a chocolate ganache topping with dark chocolate and coconut milk.
thanks guys! :D
This has several:
