First Post!

Hi Everyone, I'm Beth and this is my first post on this blog :)

I haven't cooked very much since my baby girl was born 10 months ago - my husband has really stepped up and done some great cooking and cleaning the kitchen since then.

But I made some really great cupcakes the other day, and they are milk free and egg free for my kiddo, who is allergic to milk and has to wait until after 12 months to try eggs. Here goes:

Chocolate Cake- also called Wacky Cake
Milk, Egg, Peanut and Tree Nut Free
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
¾ cup oil
2 tsp vinegar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups cold water
Mix all ingredients- you can even mix it right in the pan!! I usually mix in a bowl with an electric mixer. Pour into a greases 9x12 pan
Bake 350 for 35- 40 minutes

I made cupcakes, and they were cooked in about 22 minutes. I used storebought coconut pecan frosting and special dark cocoa. They were delicious! Madeleine even had some - I think we'll make this for her first birthday.

I think this is the recipe we call Crazy Cake -- it's a great choice here, too, the land of the egg-white allergic!

hi beth, welcome ! I think that recipe will help some of the women who read this blog. I believe one of the linked blogs is run by a mother ofa child who has all those allergies..
