- When our (now adult) Daughter was less than a year old, we thought she might have been allergic to eggs. So, when her Birthday rolled around, we went hunting for an egg-free cake and stumbled across this recipe.
- It is so moist and, well, delicious, that we made it for all the kids’ cakes for Birthdays or just cupcakes. People always loved them and asked for the recipe.
- Makes 12 cupcakes
