Having a 1st birthday party for your child at home means a lot of work, you will have to keep in mind that some children are lactose intolerant and may not be able to eat the cake and other bread items. Therefore, you will need to cater some dairy free foods too. Here is a simple dairy free 1st birthday cake recipe that everyone can enjoy.

What you will need for the chocolate cake recipe:

2 cups of rice flour

1 cup of cocoa powder

1 tablespoon of baking powder

tablespoon of salt

1 cups of dairy and soy free shortening (you will get at any store)

2 cups of sugar

4 eggs

1 cups of almond milk or rice milk

cup of maple syrup or mixed fruit jam

2 teaspoons of vanilla extract


Preheat the oven to 350F or 180C.

Sift together the rice flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt in a bowl.

Mix the sugar and shortening together using a blender for 3 minutes (you will get a fluffy mix at the end).

Beat the eggs in a separate bowl and whisk until fluffy.

Add the eggs to the sugar-shortening mix and combine well to get a viscous mix.

Add the vanilla extract and maple syrup to the mix, along with the almond milk.

Now add the dry ingredients and mix using a blender on maximum speed. There should be no lumps in the mix.

Pour the batter in the cake tin (greased) (if you are using silicone mold then there is no need to moisten).

Bake for 35-40 minutes until the top is firm and the cake is spongy.

Remove from the tin and let it cool at room temperature.

To prepare the dairy free icing you will need:

2 cups of powdered sugar

cup of dairy free margarine

cup of almond milk

cup of cocoa powder

teaspoon of vanilla extract


Use an electric mixer to blend the margarine and sugar.

Add the almond milk, cocoa powder and vanilla extract and let the mixer do the job to make spreading more consistent.

Decorating the cake:

Slice the cake in two parts horizontally.

Mix some cocoa powder with hot water and gently sprinkle the cocoa liquid on the bottom layer and the top layer. This will keep the cake moist.

On the bottom layer, spread some of the frosting.

Place the other layer over it and cover with frosting on all sides.

Refrigerate for a few hours before serving.
