    Bianca never sell yourself short. You are a natural writer and I often wish you would write more because I just love reading your work. Your love of the people in your life and your gentleness just shine through. Your recipes have changed the way I look at eating and your photographs are great! I’m not sure what the blogging award is but I really hope you do well because, my dear, you deserve it!

    • Oh my, there is a tear in my eye!!!!! Thank you so much. What kind, heart warming words! It is lovely to hear that you see my work that way, I really appreciate it. I would love to write more. I have never considered myself or had any one else consider me talented with words but it is what I have always loved to do and it is great that I know have this space to share it all. Thanks again for writing. I shall let you know how I go but to be honest just making it this far is completely surreal! Much love and thanks. x

    Hi Bianca, I wanted to let you know that I made this today and it was delicious. We have a weekly play date with several other friends and one of these friends has just found out that her nearly two year old is allergic to dairy and gluten. I was thrilled to be able to make this for them (and show them that you can still make delicious food that is gluten/dairy free) and even more thrilled that her daughter LOVED this cake! She ate three slices. We thought it was great too. Thank you so much.

    • That is great to hear! Thank you so much for taking the time to write. I really appreciate it. Be sure to let me know how you go with anything else that you try. x

    hi, I was wondering if there was any way to make this without eggs? would you recommend a good egg replacement? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    • Rebecca

      I haven’t tried the original recipe, so I can’t compare, but I tried replacing the three eggs with 1 banana, 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed and 3 tablespoons of water and it’s delicious and holds together. You could try three chia eggs instead if you don’t want a banana taste (3 tablespoons of chia seeds and 9 tablespoons of water) I will try that next time. Definitely a cake worth making again (and again…), thanks Bianca 🙂

      • Fabulous!!!! Thank you so much Rebecca. I really appreciate your feedback and your very helpful comment! Bianca. x

    • I haven’t made it without eggs sorry. Here is a link to our egg free recipes if that helps at all https://wholefoodsimply.com/category/egg-free-2/

  • Lola Swan

    Ive got this in the oven now. So excited!! Thank you!

  • Ann D

    Hi bianca, any way of replacing the almond meal with something else? My son has a nut allergy 🙁 I love your posts, and your recipes all look great, but so many contain nuts that I haven’t been able to make as I need to find an alternative (this nut allergy thing is all still quite new to me ).

    Hi Bianca, I am keen to make this icing for birthday banana cupcakes for a friend’s child 3rd bday of 30 cupcakes this weekend, what quantities would you recommend for this number of cakes please? I may use tahini for safe allergy reasons. Thanks for the tip. Your recipes are absolutely yum and easy. Hope life with new bub is progressing splendidly! Xx

    • Oh Cass I am sorry but I am hopeless with estimating things like that! Anything I suggest could be well off!! I hope it is enjoyed. x

      • Cass

        No worries Bianca, I used around 1/2 cup each tahini and honey and 2 tsp coconut flour with drop of water. Just enough for 20 cupcakes. Hope they enjoy them xx

  • Lyn Woods

    Hi! Can I use vanilla bean paste instead of vanilla extract? 🙂 thanks!

  • Kara

    Hi Bianca 🙂 Do you think macadamia nut butter would be ok in the icing instead of almond butter?
