Cakes and cookies have always been an all time favorite with young and old alike. Flour is an important ingredient in the making of cake along with butter, eggs and sugar. But cakes and cookies can be made without flour too - a great option for those who are wheat or gluten sensitive and also for those, who simply want to skip on flour. The good news is that they are lighter and taste equally good or even better. Look up some flour free cake and cookie recipes.
