I was recently on Pinterest wasting precious nap time away did I come across this blog: Family Feedbag. It had a recipe for homemade Baby Cakes for her 9-month-old son who was teething and always seems to have the munchies. I have yet to try the recipe because my Sweet Baby hasn’t got any teeth and at his 9-month check up I will check if he can have these without teeth. Below is the recipe but check out her blog she has some amazing things on there.
1 128 ml (4.5 fl oz) jar of strained prunes baby food
2 tbsp canola oil
1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
While my oven preheated to 375 degrees (F), I emptied the jar of prunes into a large mixing bowl and added the egg and canola oil, mixing well. In a separate small mixing bowl, I mixed the flour, baking soda and cinnamon. The dry ingredients were gradually added to the wet ingredients, mixing well to form a ball of dough.
Using a floured rolling pin, I rolled out the dough on a floured surface to a 1/2-inch thickness. Using a sharp knife, I cut away the edges to leave myself a large rectangle. Then I cut smaller rectangles, about 1-inch by 3-inches, and dotted them with a fork in the centre. The scraps were balled and rolled out again until I had about two dozen baby cakes.
I put the baby cakes on a parchment lined cookie sheet, about an inch apart, and popped them in the oven for 15 minutes until golden and puffy. They cooled on a wire rack.
