Cake recipe without eggs, dairy, soya and coconut

DD turns 1 on Saturday and I want to make a cake that we can both eat. Between us we are allergic to nuts, pulses, soya, dairy, egg and coconut angry

Can anyone recommend a straightforward cake recipe that avoids that list of allergens?

The recipes I've found online with good reviews use coconut or soya milk both of which I can't have. I use oatly for dairy allergic DD; can I substitute that?

Any pointers gratefully received!

You can use which ever milk suits you best it won't make a difference to the recipe.

It's the eggs that are the tricky one, have you tried aquafaba?

Thanks for posting mamado

I will look at your blog this afternoon.

I'm hoping for a plain sponge cake, vanilla or similar or perhaps an apple cake because that would need icing less and perhaps be more 1- year old friendly with less refined sugar?

I have used milk allergy mom for good free-from recipes. This one worked well for a birthday cake - the process is a bit like making play dough but stick with it, I was very pleasantly surprised.

something like a marble cake doesn't need icing x

btw if you're avoiding pulses don't use aquafaba!

@mamado your marvel cake recipe looks AMAZInG.

Have a look on Pintrest for Wacky or Depression cake - no dairy, eggs, coconut and as long as you use sunflower oil it has no soya either. I've been really pleased with how they turn out, and I use gluten free flour as well

@justanotheruser18 thank you! there are over 600 recipes all of which should fit your requirements (other than some with aquafaba or soya). If you think of a particular recipe you'd like i should be able to find a safe version!!

https://veggiedesserts.co.uk/best-vegan-chocolate-cake is delicious! Use whatever milk substitute you usually use.

Thank you so much everyone for links and suggestions.

Is it important to use sunflower for the oil or would a very light olive oil be ok?

If I was doing a plain vanilla, olive oil might be tasteable I think. Veg oil (check the label obviously but is often just rapeseed oil) or anything very bland is best

I really recommend Bob's Red Mill egg replacer. It's just tapioca flour so nothing weird. I bake with it all the time and it works a treat!

This one uses olive oil.
