“If you’re looking for a quick and easy gluten-free birthday cake recipe look no further. This nut-free Paleo Birthday Cake was devoured by the boys and their friends, and I thought it was amazing too. Who can resist chocolate cake smothered in rich, creamy chocolate frosting? I can’t!

Both of my boys are well into high school now so I am absolutely cherishing each and every birthday that we celebrate before they are off to college! Between the two of them, I can count the number of high school birthday celebrations that remain, on one hand. Goodness, how time flies.

Even though the boys are super independent now and I have more time on my hands, I still have a commitment to creating simple recipes with as little fuss as possible. This homemade birthday cake recipe has only 7 ingredients, and the batter is thrown together in a food processor in a couple of minutes. This cake recipe is easier to make than one from a mix.”
