The Safe Cake

I call this cake the “Safe Cake” because you can pretty much take it anywhere and know that it can be eaten. There is no cane sugar,  it’s vegan, it’s gluten free, and it doesn’t even take up an hour of your time to make. You can even make it nut free by subbing more coconut flour, or garbanzo bean flour for the almond flour. If you do use only coconut flour know you will have to add a little extra water because coconut flour tends to be very dry and absorbent. safecake
