Collagen Gluten-Free Vanilla Cake Recipe

homemade gluten-free vanilla cake

A larger-than-life birthday party isn’t required to indulge in a multi-tiered confection. This is the case with our vanilla cake, which is not only gluten-free, but also perfectly captures the sweet flavour of the holiday season. This is accomplished with the addition of cinnamon, maple syrup (or honey) and Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer® in Vanilla.

This dessert is a deliciously festive way to end your day or week. Treat yourself to a slice of vanilla cake the next time you can’t shake off a sugar craving.
