This recipe is adapted from Mary Berry’s Banana and Carrot cake found her brilliant (& highly recommended) foolproof cookbook. Mary’s cake recipe is completely delicious and when my mother in law baked it a few weeks ago I literally died and went to heaven, that said, it’s very unhealthy and not at all baby friendly. This version is still very delicious and very moist but just not nearly as sweet as I have cut all the refined white sugar, if you and your baby have a very sweet tooth add another 1/4 cup of maple syrup or if your baby is over 1 use 1/2 cup of honey as it’s much sweeter.
