Since True’s birthday is coming, I am going to figure out a healthy cake-ish recipe to make for my dairy & egg free child. I made one for her first birthday and she didn’t even want to try it. Then again, we tried to give her real cake with the works and she didn’t want to try that too. I have a feeling this year, she will want to try it. She calls all cake-cookie-candy-ish foods “junk,” but I think she is getting curious to want to try it. Her (and Brave’s) everyday dessert is called fruit, sometimes vegetables. She really does love them all (fruits and vegetables that is!). I am so thankful for that.

This friendship bread is quite addicting. It is perfect because it is not too sweet. Now, my second attempt is much healthier than the first. I used fat free milk, whole wheat flour, applesauce instead of oil, and a Splenda baking mix instead of regular sugar. It came out grittier due to the whole wheat flour, but it still taste good and the bread is still extra moist. I don’t feel bad eating this healthified version, though too bad my girls still can’t have any of this as it has milk and eggs and True is allergic to both. Brave isn’t, but we try to keep things fair. Plus, they really don’t need to eat this, so they don’t. Most of the time they don’t complain about it.
I have a few recipes I may consider making for her special birthday cake, but does anyone have any other recipes to share? Remember, it needs to be dairy and egg free (and peanut free cause she is allergic to that too!). I need all the help I can get!
Or anyone know any dairy-egg free cupcake recipes? I think she is most curious about cupcakes.
