I have been looking for recipes for a cake. It is for a 2 year old with milk, eggs, fish, soya and nuts allergies. If anyone knows a recipe I really appreciate to have it.

Thanks a lot,

Claudia

This is Wacky Cake. It's a tried and true recipe that is egg/dairy/p/n free.

INGREDIENTS:
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups cold water

DIRECTIONS:
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well . Mix wet ingredients together in a separate container. Combine Wet into Dry. Batter will be quite liquid. Pour into prepared 9x13 pan (Pam & Flour or just Pam or Parchement pape)

Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 to 40 minutes, or until tooth pick inserted comes out clean. You can also put in cupcakes and bake for 15-20 minutes. Top with safe icing, or just sprinkle icing sugar when cooled.

Makes a fudgy chocolatey cake that everyone will enjoy.

Here's one I really like:

Edited to add: I should mention that I always reduce the sugar to 1c., the vanilla to 11/2tsp and the almond extract to 1/2tsp. I like a cake cake slightly less sweet and highly flavored, when it is going to be iced (which I usually do with this one) or it can become a little sickening, but that's just personal preference.

While browsing for Thanksgiving recipes on the Food Network, I came across an episode of Ricardo and Friends where his entire menu is at least nut free. He did have a cake recipe that might fight your need. Here's the link

I've used the Flax Seed/Water egg replacment that RIcardo suggests before and it works very well for binding - not so good in sugar cookies . . .but great for muffins, cakes, etc. I grind up the flax seed very well and then boil 1 part flax seed with three parts water for 3 minutes until jelly like. 1 tablespoon = 1 egg. You still need to add a lever to your recipe (usually baking powder) but the flax mix is nice AND really good for you.
