This Healthy Smash Cake is made simply with wholesome ingredients, like oat flour and applesauce! Perfect for your little one’s first birthday celebration.
If possible, have your eggs, milk and applesauce be as close to room temperature as possible. This is only important to prevent the coconut oil from solidifying when it hits the cold ingredients.
The coconut oil needs to slightly cool down after melting because if it is added too hot into the bowl with the other cool ingredients, it will solidify.
Need to swap out the eggs? Instead, make a flax egg with ⅓ cup ground flaxseed mixed together with 1 additional cup of milk. Let it sit for 15 minutes before adding it into the cake batter in place of eggs.
We have a whole paragraph up above with frosting suggestions. Some options would be to just use a basic buttercream. Or you could use unsweetened whipped cream. Or even coconut cream! Use what you feel comfortable serving to your baby.
