Vanilla Bean Cake- Grain free, Gluten free


This delightful cake is kind of like the sister cake to my delicious rich and healthy chocolate cake. I made the vanilla one for my daughter’s birthday the other night and it was enjoyed by many! Who would have ever thought that it was made with cannellini beans! This recipe comes from the spunky coconut.
