Need Birthday Cake Recipe ~HELP~

493 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  cathe
Ok I have an 11 month old and he wont be a year for almost a month, but I need a birthday cake recipe that is Eggless Dairyless and Sugarless.

I bought some Applesauce and Flour, but what else do I need?

I dont care much about how it tastes or what it looks like because he will be the only one eating it and he doesnt really like to eat food anyway, so I figure he will only trash it.

Are there any recipes that will work?

Try and do a search for 'cake.' I cam up with lots of hits, but I haven't tried any recipes like this.
Here's one of my recipes - and it does taste good enough to serve to guests too!

Applesauce Cake
This moist, spiced cake is easy to make and vegan too.

1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup maple syrup, brown rice syrup, or agave nectar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
3/4 cup raisins
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
2 cups whole wheat or whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Oil a 10-inch round cake pan or 8 or 9-inch square baking pan. Beat oil, maple syrup, and vanilla together until smooth. Stir in applesauce, raisins, and walnuts. In separate bowl, sift remaining ingredients together. Dough will be stiff. Spread into prepared pan. Bake 30 minutes, or until cake pulls away from edges of pan and knife inserted in center comes out dry. Cool on rack. Serve cake plain or with whipped tofu topping. It's also delicious frosted.
