Recipe for cake with special dietary restrictions?

My dd is allergic to cow/goat milk, soy and corn. I am aiming to find a cake recipe for her first birthday that works around these allergies.

Any suggestions/links? TIA

  • Chocolate cake:

    1 2/3 c. flour
    1 c. sugar
    1/4 c. cocoa
    1 tsp. baking soda
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1 cup water
    1/3 c. canola oil (can she tolerate canola? if not, maybe a sunflower oil)
    1 tsp. vinegar
    1/2 tsp. vanilla

    Mix all ingredients in an ungreased square or round pan (double ingredients for a 9 x 13 pan). Pan does not need to be greased. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

  • Thank y'all very much- this is helpful direction- so essentially just bake a regular cake sans the dairy and oils... cool!

  • You can substitute applesauce for oil in any baking recipe. Use the same amount in applesauce as you would of oil. If it calls for milk, you can use almond milk or rice milk instead. If it calls for butter, you can use non-dairy options, or sometimes just omit it completely.
