"Elmo" Cakes

This recipe was inspired by a rather spectacular, 'pull-apart' Sesame Street cake pan that I found for our rather Elmo-obsessed two year old.  Alas, he has just 15 or so foods he can digest without incident so I'm always looking for some way to disguise them as something new.  Here then, in his honor, is an apple-bread like, top 8 allergen free, Elmo Cake.  As a bonus, I've written a sad-sweet poem about how happy it made him in TableTalk.

  • Ingredients:

     

    2 cups King Arthur Gluten-free flour
    1 1/4 tsp baking powder
    4 Tbsp brown sugar
    1/2 tsp salt
    2 tsp egg replacer (Orgran No-egg)
    4 Tbsp water
    8 oz vanilla rice milk
    1/2 cup apple sauce
    4 Tbsp maple syrup

     

  • Instructions:

     

    Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a cake pan with olive oil (Elmo-shaped or other).

    Combine flour, baking powder, brown sugar, and salt.

    Separately, whisk together egg replacer and water in a small bowl, then whisk in rice milk. Add apple sauce, maple syrup and whisk until thoroughly combined. Add dry ingredients and stir to combine thoroughly.

    Bake ~45 minutes, until golden brown and pulling away from the edges of the pan.
