Re: 1st Birthday Cake Receipes!?!
I made the apple swirl cake from the wholesomebabyfood.com for L's first birthday. You can substitute things like applesauce or molasses for sugar and use something other than eggs for a binder (although I can't remember what the options are right now.) I'll be honest - I didn't alter the recipe much except to add a lot more chopped apples and to put apple juice instead of orange juice. I made myself feel better about using sugar and eggs by using all organic ingredients. L didn't eat any of it.
I forgot to add that this recipe is delicious. I've made it twice since the party for DH and I to enjoy.
