Family! Year One!

Our boy is 1 today! One year old already! Caden has grown and changed so much in just one year. He's a fine blend of me and David, although I think he has a lot of his Daddy in him; he loves exploring and adventures, he's funny, sweet and likes to tease. He's on the go all the time, but every now and then he stops to give us a cuddle or baby kisses. We love our boy!

We celebrated Caden's birthday last weekend at Whit's End. He had a blast playing on the indoor playground, eating cake and opening presents. We made him a special Apple Spice Cake, as you can see he loved it!

Caden's 1st Birthday Cake Recipe:

Apple Spice Cake 
As with any "non traditional" cake, the batter for this cake will not seem "right" so don't panic!

1/2 cup molasses
1 cup applesauce
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1-3/4 cup flour
1 tsp ginger

Mix the molasses and applesauce in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Bake in a nonstick 8 x 8-inch baking pan or one sprayed with a non-stick spray, in a 350° F for 30 to 45 minutes, or until it tests done.

**The batter may be a bit dry and you may need to add more applesauce or a bit of water. Try adding 1/4 cup of applesauce first then gradually add a bit of water by tablespoon. You can also add 2 tablespoons of pure cocoa to make a chocolate flavor.**
