postheadericon First Birthday Carrot Cake

This is a delicious gfcf, gluten free, family-friendly recipe! It is also (if you double check ingredients!) a wheat free, dairy free, soy free, egg free, tree nut free, peanut free, fish free, shellfish free, corn free, top 8 allergen free, and vegan recipe.

This is a variation on several recipes. It’s a good first birthday cake, because there are no eggs, nor other major allergens. It’s also pretty low in sugar, so you could eat it for breakfast without much guilt!

Mix together:

  • 1.5 cups grated carrot, loosely packed (or use a food processor to just mush it)

  • 1 cup sugar (type is up to you)

and let sit for 15 min

Add

  • 1 1/2 cups gf flour mix + 1 tsp xanthan or guar gum (or just 1 1/2 cups wheat flour)

  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar

Method:
Mix together dry ingredients with a whisk. Add wet ingredients and dry to the carrot/sugar mix.

Pour into a bundt cake pan or a 8×8 pan (well greased). bake for 40 min at 350. let cool and eat as is or with confectioner’s sugar dusted on top.

postheadericon Gluten-Free Granola Review

Before I needed to go gluten-free, one of the things I loved most was snacking on granola. I never added milk (ick, mushy!) or yogurt (ick, yogurt!), but granola straight from the bag is even better than trail mix. And I love trail mix. Back in the day, I even tried (unsuccessfully) to make granola from scratch. Granola is a delicious way of getting protein, sugar for energy, and dried fruit into you early in the morning before the caffeine kicks in, or as a snack that’s much healthier than most other convenient snacks (though trail mix is good for that, too). Bakery on Main GF Granola is a store-bought alternative to making it yourself.
