So, my son Keaton turned the big ONE last Sunday (yes that would be on the 4th of July) which is just so fun for me and for him. Meanwhile though, I have a pantry chalk-full of baby food! Yes the jarred kind that only a baby who hadn't tasted all the goodness of real food, could, or would enjoy. So what do you do with left over baby food? Make cake, of course! I'm starting to believe that you can make a cake out of aaaalllllmost anything! And I found this particular recipe on allrecipes.com by just typing in "babyfood" into the part where you can type in the ingredients that you desire to use, and it magically tells you what you could use for that ingredient/s. Genius!!! So use any combination of 3 fruity baby food jars and add it to this standard muffin recipe, and you've got Keaton Cake (or Baby Food Cake).
