Looking for a Baking Recipe for Baby?
I love a good baking recipe, as you simply mix together the required ingredients, stick it in the oven, and voila – as if by magic, you have a perfectly (most of the time!) turned-out cake. And which child doesn’t love home-baked goodies as a treat from time to time?
The below selection is not limited to cakes and baked goods but includes other desserts and treats, as well. These are just some of the recipes that have been successfully tried and tested on my son. No doubt this list will continue to grow, so I hope you find a suitable baking recipe for your baby here. ☺
Remember to avoid offering baby refined sugars in his first year, if you don’t want him to develop a sweet tooth later in life. For babies under a year, cakes can be sweetened with ripe fruit or fruit juice. Older babies and toddlers can be offered cakes as an occasional treat, lest they come to expect them regularly!
