Baby's 1st Birthday Banana Cake - No Sugar

“I wanted to feed Lucy cake on her first birthday but didn't want to introduce her to new foods on her big day. I also baked it ahead of time so she could sample the cake two to three days in advance in case of a reaction (I didn't actually decorate it until the day of her party). Recipe adapted from a blog called greenparenting (I reduced the egg white, and left out the walnuts/raisins suggested)”
