This is an amazing small cake which is so moist and trust me it has the best flavour. By making it flourless it becomes more healthy and gluten free. By replacing sugar with honey also gives a good taste and is much healthy for the body as well. I didn’t had vanilla essence so i added green cardamon powder and i was amazed it gave such a wonderful taste. This cake was finished in one day. I ate most the cake 😉 i couldn’t resist it.
