Carrot Apple and Banana cake

This little creation came about as a cake for my little girl's first birthday. I find it completely bewildering that we all seem to be able to get to grips with the dos and don'ts when it comes to our children, but somehow all rules go out the window when it comes to our nutrition and we come out with every reason under the sun not to look after ourselves.

Anyway, (rant done...for now) this delicious and super easy recipe went down really well with not just the babies, but the adults too.... I carelessly omitted to tell them it was gluten, sugar, soya, nut, and dairy until after they'd told me how delicious it was.

This is super easy, requires very little effort and mess, and my personal favourite, is super quick.

What you'll need...

- 125g flour (I used a GF blend, but you could also use rice flour, coconut flour or even ground

almonds although you might want to play with these a little bit and do half almonds, half flour because the cake it already pretty moist)

- 100g Apple and pear puree (peeled and slow cooked with cinnamon or you could buy the baby food sachets. I always prefer to make my own and normally make a bulk for the freezer)

- 2 ripe bananas

- 2 grated carrots

- 2 grated apples

- cinnamon to taste (I use LOADS)

- 1 teaspoon baking powder

Mash the bananas and combine with the puree in a bowl. In a separate bowl stir together everything else. Add the puree mix to the dry mix and combine well. Bake for 30 mins at 200 degrees. DONE

Depending on the size of bananas, carrots etc does have some baring on how long it needs to be cooked for, so I often bake it for 30 mins and then turn off the oven and leave it in there if I think it needs a little longer. Seriously yummy. Great for baby finger food or a lovely treat for any age.

I have also experimented with putting in protein powders (pea protein works quite well) to boost the cake up as a pre/post workout snack.

You could also add just about anything else you wanted... cranberries, ginger, courgette. Have a play and let me know how you get on.
