Celebrating With “Homemade” Allergy-Friendly Cake

September is always a busy month in our household. It’s my birthday month and our wedding anniversary. My daughter has been asking for “cake” since I discovered (from countless blogs) that I did not have to add eggs to a Duncan Hines cake mix, and this is how I make “homemade” cakes that are allergy-friendly! And, the Duncan Hines “cream cheese” frosting is also allergy-friendly. REMEMBER: Always check the labels on everything to make sure your allergens are not present!

 I just add the 1 cup water, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, and an applesauce pouch (or 1 cup of applesauce) to the Duncan Hines cake mix. Then, after the cake/cupcakes are done, I top them off with the allergy-friendly frosting. Please note: The cake may require to stay in the oven a little longer than what is published in the box directions.


And, yes I did get a cake that my daughter could not eat, but she didn’t notice! She enjoyed her allergy-friendly pineapple cupcakes with “cream cheese” frosting!

Minnie Mouse Waffle Saturdays

We love making Minnie Mouse waffles over here! Unfortunately, the Enjoy Life Pancake + Waffle mix has become harder to find. So when I found the Organic Classis Birch Benders pancake and waffle mix , I was so excited! 


All you do is simply add oil and water. It’s practically #vegan too! Unfortunately, there is wheat in this product so please be aware if you have this allergy!

The waffle taste is similar to buttermilk pancakes/waffles, so this mix is a hit at our house for Minnie Mouse Waffle Saturdays!

Remember to always check the labels for allergens. Some of the Birch Benders pancake & waffle mixes do contain milk, eggs, and nuts, like the protein & paleo mixes.
