¡Bate, bate, CHOCOLATE!

A few weeks ago, Katrina, in her eagerness to bake and eat chocolate, decided we should make a banana-nut chocolate cake just like Dora does in one of her stories. Katrina decided that mandarin oranges on top would also add a nice touch instead of the impermissible nuts, since I don’t allow the girls to eat nuts due to my childhood history of food allergies.

I have to say that the fruit topping did nothing for me, as Dora might have had one think. In addition, the browned fruit was quite unappetizing by dinnertime!

On a side note, did you know that peanuts are actually legumes? When I start Allan on solids next month I will go through a strict order of introducing foods in order to prevent food allergies. If I can find my reference, I’ll try to include it here. I believe legumes like peas are to be avoided until 9 months of age. Peanuts-3 or 4 years. This especially pertains to children with a family history of food allergies.
