My daughter's first birthday is coming up, and I'd love to make a cake for her that is pretty healthy (some sugar is okay, but sugar substitutes like bananas, etc. are even better), preferably chocolate, vanilla or coconut (no applesauce or carrot cakes) and tastes quite good. Any favorite recipes?

For DD's 1st birthday, I made a banana bundt cake.  We topped it with a little whipped cream and it was great.

What about a pumpkin cake or chocolate zucchini?

I like this black bean chocolate cake. Best chocolate cake ever. I've used honey or maple syrup but stevia would be fine too. You could probably use mashed up bananas even.
