One of the struggles of having such a variety of food products at our fingertips, is not knowing what’s IN the food. This can be especially hard for allergy moms when trying to come up with something that is safe for their children. Not only allergy moms, but moms like me, too! When my kids need to bring a treat for a party to school, it’s SO important to make sure that the treat is 100% nut-free, and the recipe I’m going to share is made with The Safe + Fair Food Company’s peanut and tree nut-free Good to Give Vanilla Cake Mix and could not be easier with only two ingredients!
SAFE + FAIR’s products are “clean label” are tested thoroughly and clearly labeled. I love that their products are so affordably priced, so that families like ours are able to try everything and get more of what we love. The company has set the bar high to help people easily stay away from the ingredients they are looking to avoid. They offer a large variety of desserts, meals, and snacks. We have tried all of the snacks, the cake mix, and the mac & cheese and they are all delicious.
Brands who take social responsibility seriously impress me so much, so I love that 3% of proceeds are donated to the Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy and Asthma Research at Stanford University. This is an important cause with not enough funding.
Another way they are building awareness and inspiring change, they are launching Food-Allergy-Free Friday, a social movement asking individuals to pledge their commitment to supporting the food-allergic community on Fridays! They will be looking for people to share Safe + Fair product ideas, recipes and tips that support the Food-Allergy-Free Friday movement using the dedicated hashtag #FoodAllergyFreeFriday.
I know I got wordy with the background on the brand, but I really believe in brands who have a mission of making the world better in some way, and I truly believe that this brand does. Now, back to business. Here’s how you make this amazing dessert.
1 bag SAFE + FAIR vanilla cake mix
2 cups applesauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
Mix cake mix with applesauce in large bowl until thoroughly blended.
Pour batter into greased pan.
Follow baking time instructions on back of cake mix bag.
This recipe creates a dense, moist apple cake that tastes AMAZING and pairs well with ice cream, topped with a honey drizzle, or anything else you can dream up.
