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!
