I'm really hoping to find a recipe for my son's first birthday cake.<br>
I know he cannot have dairy, soy, or egg. Rice and gluten are questionable.<br>
Any suggestions?<br><br>
I've eaten this cake (w/ cinnamon) before I cut rice out of my diet. Should I try it with hemp or coconut milk and see if he reacts when I eat it before I try feeding it to him?<br><br><a href="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=1095631" target="_blank">http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=1095631<br></a><br><br>
If any of you make that cake with cocoa, what cocoa do you use? I've been searching for one but most seem to have dairy or soy.<br><br>
Thanks!

I've had good luck w/buckwheat flour and Hershey's cocoa. I'd go ahead and try it w/water instead of milk if you don't have a good milk sub.<br><br>
Good luck!<br><br>

We like this cake - as another alternative.<br><br>
Maple/Coconut Cake:<br><br>
I started with this recipe from Allergy-Free Cooking blog.<br><br><a href="http://angkantz.blogspot.com/2008/09...-birthday.html" target="_blank">http://angkantz.blogspot.com/2008/09...-birthday.html</a><br><br>
and changed it a bit so our recipe was<br><br>
1 c. buckwheat flour<br>
1 c. sorghum flour<br>
1/2c. potato starch<br>
1/2c. tapioca flour<br>
1 t. baking powder<br>
1 t. baking soda<br>
1/2 t. salt<br>
1 t. guar gum<br><br>
(1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use on 9 x 13 pan rubbed with a bit of coconut oil and sprinkled with sorghum flour. Mix the above together in a large mixing bowl.<br><br>
1/2 c. coconut oil<br>
1 14oz can coconut milk<br>
2/3 c. agave syrup<br>
2/3 c. maple syrup<br>
3 t. vanilla (we have homemade to make sure corn free)<br><br>
(2) Mix the liquid ingredients together with a hand blender.<br>
(3) Add the liquid ingredients to dry, blend until smooth.<br>
(4) Bake at 350 for about 25-30 minutes until the toothpick comes out clean and you see the sides of the cake pulling away from the pan a little. Cool completely. (don’t over bake or it will be dry and crumbly – I usually only bake for 22 minutes)<br><br>
Then we ground up maple sugar (using a coffee grinder to make it powdered) and used spectrum shorting with some water and vanilla to make the frosting (sorry Mom made the frosting and she's a pro so she didn't measure).
