My husband makes an amazing chocolate quinoa cake. Its so good that at my last birthday party he had requests from our friends to bake their birthday cakes – and there was some talk that he should start his own cake company (drinks involved obviously). The quinoa makes for a moistness that’s hard sans dairy or tofu (but soy is so hard to digest!)
Anyway, I’m always looking for way to indulge without using dairy and gluten as they aggravate my skin and wreak havoc on my digestive system so the other day while I was in the mood to bake and thought how Ben’s recipe would taste with other flavors. I settled on cinnamon, because like chocolate, its a strong flavor that would mask the quinoa taste nicely. I also love spiking anything cinnamon with clove and nutmeg so also added these too.
