When it comes to dessert, I think nothing says July 4th better than the combination of strawberries, blueberries and whipped cream served with moist vanilla cake.

I’ve had several requests for a vanilla version of the Best-Ever Chocolate Quinoa Cake and I can promise you I’ve spent many sad weekends trying but I haven’t quite mastered it yet. But on the bright side, I did manage to find another gluten-free and refined sugar-free option that’s absolutely divine…

Now the beauty of this cake is that the ingredient list is nice and simple. No searching for multiple different flours or exotic ingredients. The main star is nutritious almond flour which gives it a rich buttery flavor, without even using butter.

For now, let’s stick with the red, white and blue in honor of Independence Day.

By the way, what are your plans for the weekend? I’m hoping to find time to celebrate after we finish unpacking boxes so we’ll so how it goes. If I don’t get to pop-in on Friday then I wish you all a safe and awesomely happy weekend!
