    Default Cupcakes suitable for babies!

    Hi

    I am wanting to make some cupcakes for my son's 1st birthday party. Does anyone have a semi-healthy recipe so that the babies can eat them?



    Thanks
    Leila

    From ninemsn:

    Pear and carob cupcakes


    Special options: Kid friendly, Low fat, Vegetarian
    Course: Snacks
    Favourite flavours: Cakes/baking

    These delicious light and fluffy cupcakes are a great alternative to the commercial chocolate chip variety, guaranteed to be a winner with the kids. Ripe succulent pear partners beautifully with carob and an infusion of vanilla. Pears are a good source of vitamin C and antioxidants which are both important for healthy immune function.
    INGREDIENTS

    1 cup wholemeal flour
    1 cup spelt or plain flour
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    1 egg
    1/3 cup raw organic honey
    ? cup cold-pressed virgin olive oil
    1 cup low-fat milk
    1 cup pear, diced (canned or fresh)
    1/4 cup small carob chip pieces

    METHOD

    Preheat oven to 180?C (350?F/Gas 4). Place paper cupcake cups into a 12-hole muffin tray.

    Place all dry ingredients into a large bowl and mix until well combined.

    In another bowl add all liquid ingredients and whisk until well combined.

    Slowly pour liquid into dry ingredients and gently combine. Be careful not to over-mix as this will result in a heavy cupcake.

    Gently fold in pear and carob chips.

    Spoon mixture into cupcake holes and bake for 20-25 minutes, until cupcakes have risen and are golden brown. If they are becoming too brown, cover with foil.

    Allow to sit for 5 minutes.

    you used to be able to buy the carob pieces in the health food section at coles and safeway, not sure if they still have them.
