This yummy gingerbread from the recipe in the first BabyCakes cookbook contains my favorite secret ingredient: pumpkin (also featured in my favorite brownie recipe)! I also love the cookbook’s suggestion to throw in some flax meal to covertly add more nutrition to this tasty snack.
These banana nut muffins came out so delightfully fluffy! I followed the recipe for banana bread in the first BabyCakes cookbook (essentially this recipe), with just a few alterations to make the muffins a little less fatty and sugary. I cut the oil down to 1/4 cup, and used 1/4 cup of agave nectar and […]
Yum! I made these blondies using the recipe in the first BabyCakes cookbook, except I substituted a mixture of garbanzo bean flour and gluten-free all purpose flour mix for the garbanzo and fava bean flour, and corn starch for the potato starch. I baked them in a 9″x9″ pan for ~30 minutes. And I always recommend […]
Mmmm, cornbread… So far, cornbread (including pumpkin cornbread) is the only vegan and gluten-free bread that I’ve successfully made. I made this yummy loaf of cornbread using a recipe from the first BabyCakes cookbook. For those of you who don’t own this fantastic cookbook, the recipe is also available online here. The only small deviation I […]
I made these adorable sheep cupcakes for Easter, based on these directions. I used my favorite chocolate cake recipe (German chocolate cake from the Babycakes Covers the Classics cookbook), and store-bought frosting to save a little time.
I made these delicious maple donuts on a snowy day in January, using the Babycakes Covers the Classics plain cake donut recipe with a little tweak. I added one teaspoon of maple extract into the 1/4 cup vanilla, giving the donuts a slight maple flavor. For a stronger maple flavor, two teaspoons of maple extract would probably do […]
Last year my sister gave me this idea for a cute Easter breakfast and I made it about as simple as possible. I think these bunny pancakes will be an Easter tradition for our family, since they are so easy to make. I made banana pancakes using the recipe from my Babycakes Covers the Classics […]
I’m obsessed with cauliflower nachos! Honestly, they are only a little bit like nachos, but they are SUPER yummy. We used almond cheese and added black beans for protein, but otherwise followed the gist of the recipe linked above. And we’ve been making them with purple cauliflower because purple is our three-year-old’s favorite color, and that makes […]
This fall I realized that my poor deprived child was three and a half years old and had never had a donut. This egregious oversight never would have happened if I could eat gluten (or if I could easily get gluten-free dairy-free donuts at any bakery), so we’ve started making mini donuts at home. Our […]
