It's DS first birthday coming up and I want a healthy egg-free sugar-free cake. Anyone have a good recipe?
I know, I know, a little sugar won't hurt him, but I don't see what's wrong with finding an alternative if it's out there.
He also has an egg allergy.
I was originally just going to do a separate smash cake for him, but if its a nice cake I don't see why I can't use it for everyone.

Google parties make me sick. It was an 80's book that my mum made all of our cakes etc out of as my twin is literally the boy in the bubble allergy wise

I had a look and it's a book from 1983? Looks difficult to get and I can't even find recipes out of it... Thanks anyway!

Can you use a sugar substitute like Agave nectar or maybe even stevia?
This is one I've been meaning to make but haven't had time.
I was going to use raspberries though.
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour (white whole wheat preferred)
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (you can buy one that's actually GOOD for you from the health food store)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground chia seeds or flax seeds
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup blueberries
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup date syrup, maple syrup, or agave nectar (sugar free)
1 cup blueberries (for serving)
additional syrup or agave nectar to taste
Preheat oven to 180 .
In a medium bowl, mix flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, &chia (or flax).
In blender, combine water, 1/2 cup blueberries, and balsamic vinegar and blend until smooth.
Make a well in the dry ingredients.
Add the syrup and the blueberry mixture.
Stir until completely mixed.
Pour into an oiled 9-inch round cake pan.
Bake 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool completely before inverting onto serving platter.
Serve with blueberries on top, drizzled with additional syrup or agave.

I made an egg -free sugar-free cake for dds 1st birthday. It was a carrot cake but I remember seeing a banana and applesauce recipe as well. They will both come up if you google sugar free birthday cake. I think they are on the homemade baby food recipes site. The carrot one turned out really well and I added a cream cheese frosting (no icing sugar) with a tiny bit if agave mixed in.

As a PP said banana and applesauce is a good option too - they are both raising agents too so will take place of the egg, plus ads sweetness.
Sorry I'm on my phone so don't have any recipes on hand - will come back later.

Do you think I could use frozen mixed berries?
Also, where would I get "white" whole wheat flour?

Yeah they would work fine!
You can just use normal plain flour
