I have a dairy allergy, but I wanted to eat birthday cake. I made this so I could join in the celebrations.
I made this for my mother's birthday. I made it dairy-free so we could all could enjoy it.
I made a lot because I also gave some to my kids as a snack. If you are just making a birthday cake, reduce the amounts .Some pancake mixes contain dairy, so check the package before you buy it.
Enjoy Japanese food around the world.
