We love chocolate. And more chocolate. And more chocolate. Especially during the holidays. That’s why we couldn’t resist sharing this gluten-free, grain-free recipe for “Queen Mother’s Cake”. Now you may ask, why is it called Queen Mother’s Cake? There seems to be some debate about whether an actual British monarch was involved in the history of the cake (it is rumored to have been the favorite cake of Queen Elizabeth), but modern adaptations focus more on its modern origins as the most popular recipe of Maida Heatter, aka the Queen of Desserts…..ahhh the lightbulbs flash on!
We love it because it’s gluten-free (obviously) and relatively low carb – it definitely contains less sugar than the typical chocolate cake recipe, and the almond base adds that extra bit of protein and healthy fat. Super indulgent with health benefits? Sounds almost too good to be true!
