Camomile cake – no eggs, no dairy, no butter

A delicate, relaxing cake to offer to your kids when you want to give them a sweet treat but not loaded with dynamite sugars 🙂

A nice evening snack or a wonderful 1st birthday cake as it has no eggs, no dairy, no butter and you can substitute the honey with either agave syrup or two dates mashed in a paste. The cake is fluffy and light.

    I just found your blog and it has been a huge saver! As a full time working mom, I was really out of inspiration (or time) to think of recipes for my 9 months old baby. Your recipes are amazing and she actually likes it (despite the fact that we had lots of troubles in introducing her to solids since she is exclusively bf).
    Grazie di cuore!
