Dairy and Egg Free Valentine’s Day Cupcakes
Approximately 2.5% of children suffer from cow’s milk allergy and approximately 1.3% of children suffer from egg allergy, making them the greatest causes of food allergy in children (greater than both peanut and wheat combined). Therefore it is not surprising that as an allergist I frequently have to tell parents of young children that their child has either or both of these allergies. As these diagnoses are often made before a child’s first birthday, parents often ask me “well what about our little one’s first birthday cake?” For years, I have mentioned great online sources for recipes, but never with the confidence of knowing the recipes found online were any good. As a mom who loves to cook and especially bake, I decided it was time to put a few recipes to the test.
