Baby’s First Birthday Cake

The joy of seeing your baby eat his first cake is priceless! I know that you can give them basically anything to eat once they’ve hit the age of one but that didn’t mean I wanted to! I made a carrot, pineapple, applesauce cake! It came out very moist and yummy! Seriously, I really liked it! I topped it with a low sugar cream cheese frosting which he seemed to totally love!

Kyler’s Birthday Carrot–Pineapple-Applesauce Cake

1 1/2 cup sifted all-purpose unbleached flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 eggs (or 1/2 cup prepared egg substitute)

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup brown sugar (can use less)

1/2 cup white sugar (can use less)

1 1/2 cups finely grated (about 4 large)

One- 8 oz can of crushed pineapple, undrained

1/4 cup applesauce
Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9 inc square or 7 x 11 inch oblong cake pan.
Then Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt into a large bowl.

In another bowl, beat the eggs with the oil, then blend in the brown and white sugars.

In a third bowl, combine the carrots, pineapple with its juice, and applesauce.

Beat the egg-oil mixture into the dry ingredients. When well blended, stir in the carrot-pineapple mixture. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan and bake on the middle shelf of the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the cake is risen and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out dry.

Then add Cream Cheese Frosting of your choice!

He loves to share! He tried giving Daddy and I both some of his delicious cake, too sweet! 🙂
