    Default Semi-healthy baby birthday cake recipe wanted

    Hi All

    It's coming up to DS's 1st birthday party and I'd like to make him a little cake that he can eat without me feeling too guilty about it.

    Has anyone got a good recipe?

    I'm going to assume he's not allergic to egg (I'll try him on it before the party of course) but if you have any egg-free recipes I'll try that too.

    TIA!

    Cake:
    4 eggs
    2 tsp. baking powder
    1/2-1 cup sugar
    1 cup pecans, chopped (Replace with Saltanas and use only 1/2 cup of sugar)
    4 cups grated carrots
    1 cup vegetable oil
    2 cup flour
    2 tsp. baking soda
    2 tsp. cinnamon


    Cream Cheese Icing:

    butter, softened
    cream cheese, softened
    (I just went by taste and consistancy... add as much or as little of each as you like)
    Vanilla extract - 1 drop - i dint use it thou

    Cake Directions:

    1. Combine sugar, baking powder, flour, cinnamon and baking soda in a bowl. Add in the eggs and oil.

    2. Mix until just blended and then add the carrots and pecans.

    3. Bake at 180-220C for 35 to 40 minutes or until done.


    Frosting Directions:

    1. Mix cream cheese and butter until smooth, add vanilla and blend well. Spread on cooled cake.

    Thats it!

    I made Molly Janes in the shape of a butterfly and coloured the icing purple....
    I also decorated with fresh fruit for her actual birthday and lollies for the party.
