  1. I’m sure they’re great but one or two really strange ingredients (for me). My favourite cake of all time is based on what you call ‘almond flour’ which I guess is what I would call ‘ground almonds’. It’s called ‘Reine de Saba’. The recipe is under the ‘Food’ menu on my blog. I love the almond taste.

    1. I need to check. This recipe is keto, as you know I’m following keto at the moment and can’t have sugar nor honey, etc.. so “strange ingredient” is alchocol sugar that has no calories nor carbs. I use it a bit, cause I’m not sure it’s “healthy”.
