  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Pour in the cake dough into a greased 8 inch cake pan.
  • Optionally you can choose to add nuts, raisins, or cut fruits to it before tossing it into the oven.
  • Bake the cake for about 15 minutes until you see the brown crust.
  • Cooldown completely and you can choose to use your favourite frosting. I have used a light chocolate ganache frosting.

  • Use a food processor instead of a blender for an easy & smooth cake batter.
  • Replace eggs with a Banana & Flaxseed for a Vegan version.
  • Adjust Peanut butter if the cake dough is too watery.
  • Alternately, you can bake on a gas stop on a preheated cast iron or a crockpot.
  • Make sure you have introduced the ingredients separately to your baby and the baby is not allergic to eggs or nuts.
  • You can choose to use yogurt frosting or plain whipped cream or even fruit jam tastes wonderful on this healthy smash cake.
