Hello everybody, 

 

I'm a teacher at an international school in China. Our elementary school was declared a nut-free zone to protect some very allergic students. Next week I'm planning to do a baking activity with a class. Problem: I'd like to make a zucchini cake because some children got inspired by the zucchinis in the school garden. However, all the recipes I have found so far contain nuts. Does everybody have experience with substituting nuts in baking recipes? 

 

Thanks for your ideas!

I have not tried this recipe, but I like the site because you can check off what you don't want.

There were a few others also, this one is similar to a recipe I make.

 

Enjoy cooking with them :)

Just leave them out. It's not going to make a big deal unless it calls for nut flours.

 

Good luck!

Thanks for your help, I didn't know this site.

scsigrl, I was talking about ground nuts, so I really think I'd get a problem with texture / holding together given the moisture of zucchinis.

 

So, I'll have a test run at home over this week and then we'll work from there.

 

Thanks again, proudmomof4
