Dairy and egg free passionfruit cake recipe

image For those following our little journey on Instagram, you may know that bubba had terrible eczema when she was about 6 weeks old and we found that she was sensitive to dairy, eggs and nuts with the help of some blood tests. We managed it relatively well with daily showers, lots of Aveeno, diet exemptions as well as steroid creams (unfortunately!). Her sensitivities were recently confirmed with a skin prick test.

We are extra careful with the little one as we had one episode where her eyes swelled upon contact with presumably dairy 2 months ago.

What is life without a bit of cake though? Its easier said than done as it is VERY challenging to find a dairy free, egg free, nut free cake that one can trust. No worries, make your own 🙂

Homemade passion fruit cake : 

1 and 3/4 cups flour

1 cup sugar

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp vinegar

2 tsp vanilla

1/3 cup oil

1 cup cold water

4 passion fruit

 

You cannot omit the vinegar, everything else can be tweaked around 😉 I just used a spatula to combine the ingredients. Baked it in a loaf tin at 350F / 176°C till.. toothpick comes out clean. My apologies, I did not keep an eye on the clock as I was running in and out of the kitchen.

Frosting was a passion fruit, some icing sugar and dairy free butter. No measurements, whoops.

    You seem to cook the way I do….little measurement and no timer. 🙂 This cake looks amazing though and your little girl seems to be enjoying it.

    Oh, I really feel your your sweet little girl! I’m glad you’ve managed to find some alternative tasty treats for her to enjoy.
