Paleo Vanilla Cake, A Sweet Dessert

This recipe for Paleo Vanilla Cake is made from almond flour, coconut flour, arrowroot powder, baking soda, coarse sea salt, vanilla, lemon juice, coconut oil, honey, eggs, and applesauce and is fluffy, light, and sweet. I’m starting the holiday off with cake because I want to use this recipe in another. So this morning, we’re making this delicious vanilla pound cake, so that this afternoon, we can make a berry trifle. This recipe is sweet and a little lighter than a tradition pound cake, but tastes just as delicious!

Good Morning and Happy 4th of July!! We’re really hoping that the weather is good today and sunny and we hope that yours is great as well! As for catching up, Angel’s startup app, Rostr, just got funded! I can’t wait to tell you more about that once I know if they accept or not :)
