My DD is turning 2 in a couple weeks and I'm going to make a birthday cake that she can eat - so it has to be dairy/egg/almond/hazelnut free...

I've spent the last few months throwing away cakes that didn't work out - vegan cakes can be awfully oily, flat and well, inedible after 2 bites...(sorry don't want to offend any vegan here).

I would be very grateful for a really good recipes that will please both DD and her granddad! wink

Thanks in advance

sorry "by" not "buy"

also, they just use conventional ingredients - nothing fancy or weird that you have to hunt high or low for and, no vinegar, which I always find leaves a funny after taste in your mouth

pig in the kitchen is great (although doesn't beat the other recipes in my opinion!) and try the gluttonous vegan - her cinnamon buns are gorgeous

I second coral - the cookbook is ace and all the cakes I've made from it have turned out well (lots of whisking is the key). Have served them up at family events and no one realised they were dairy/egg free and asked for the recipe. Well worth the money

awww thanks SO MUCH chocamom and mamado for the Giorgio Locatelli cake!
I love him (even his 8 hour recipes ;-)), I didn't know his daughter was allergic to egg, jeez, I bet it meant goodbye to his egg-rich pasta at home huh :-)

Also thanks Coral for the book suggestion. Wow it looks like it was invented for me.

I found a lovely brownie recipe on the Gwyneth Paltrow cookbook so I'll give it a go... I'd like something chocolatey because DD loves chocolate things...
