I know I have been in this situation before, having too much jar baby food, and not being able to use it before the date is up on it. Well I have gotten some great ideas to help use up some of the jars of baby food you may be storing in your cupboards. The first recipe I will give to all you mothers in a jam is banana bread, then a spaghetti recipe, and then cake recipe.

Cook time: 1 hour

½ cup unsalted sweet butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 6oz. jar of baby food

½ tsp lime juice
2 large eggs
2 tbsp buttermilk

¼ tsp nutmeg

How to:

1. Mix butter in to sugar and microwave it for about 30 seconds just until it is softened
2. remove from the microwave and mix until fully combined
3. In separate bowl mix baby food, banana’s, lime juice, vanilla, extract, buttermilk, and eggs.
4. combine the egg mixture in to the warmed butter and sugar mixture, slowly so you don’t cook the eggs,

How I came up with these ideas

recipes using baby food

These ideas came to me one day when I was talking to my mother about not being able to use up my little ones baby food fast enough. My mother told me when she had that problem when me or my siblings were not eating all our food she would make the cakes, cookies, spaghetti and then banana bread, she said the bread was my father’s favorite and for many years he did not know that she was using baby food in the recipes. she is how I got these recipes if it was not for her I never would have came up with these great baby food recipes to use and keep my family eating healthy with out them knowing, ( my husband still does not know that is what I use for my banana bread). Try these delicious recipes the next time you don’t want to waste the baby food you have in your cupboard. Use them in other foods. I know you and your family will love them.
