I don't know about you guys, but I don't want to make my 1 year olds sick with their smash cakes. My little sweetie has had bites of sugary treats, thanks to her 3 older sisters, but nothing more than that. I've always made the girls smash cakes, but this year, I tried a combo of a couple different recipes and she loved it! I will say, I made a whole other(pumpkin) cake for all the other guests!
Baby's First Birthday Cake
1 banana + 1/2 cup mixed berries blended in food processor to make puree
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
Whisk your fruit puree, milk, egg, and vanilla together. In a separate bowl, combine whole wheat flour, baking powder, soda, and salt. Slowly pour your liquid ingredients into the dry, and mix until the dry ingredients are all wet. Pour your batter into a greased 6 inch round pan (Double ingredients to make a double layer). Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes, or until you can stick a knife through the center and it comes out clean. Frosting:
1 cup organic cream
Optional 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
Frost your cake or cupcakes and top with fruit. Makes 1 6 inch cake (20-30 Minute cooking time), 12 mini cupcakes (10 minute cooking time), or 6 regular size cupcakes (~15 min cooking time)
She loved it! She especially loved the fruit on top!
