If you’ve read my blog before, then you know I’m allergic to eggs.  My mom found out when I was 6 months old so I’ve never been able to eat anything with eggs my entire life.  If egg event gets on my hands, it turns red and itchy.

I love desserts, but normally have to make them myself.  It’s rare to find a dessert prepare from the store that doesn’t have eggs.  

For any birthday in my family, I ALWAYS make an eggless dessert so I can eat it too.  My kids love the eggless vanilla cupcakes I make, but this is closing in as a family favorite.

    How many servings is this?

    Your recipe mentions baking powder, but it’s not included in the list of ingredients. Help!

    • Holly says:

      Baking powder is not listed in the ingredient list. I think you misread it.

    • kat says:

      Nope, it’s there in the directions (line 3), but not in the ingredients list. Do you mean it shouldn’t be there? Thanks!

    • Holly says:

      Gotcha! I see it now. I think that was mistakenly added in the directions! I’ll make the change now. Thanks for catching that!
