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.
