Queen of Sheba Cake (Reine de Saba)
I am conscious that I have quite a few recipes for chocolate cake on this blog, but I suppose one more can’t hurt …
This recipe for Queen of Sheba Cake (or Reine de Saba) was given to me by my French mother-in-law after some pleading on my part. One afternoon, after she had served a procession of five courses at lunch, she brought out this beauty for dessert, a plain chocolate cake which tasted anything but.
A delicious dairy-free and gluten-free lemon cake using whole lemons which are gently cooked until tender and then blitzed to produce a wonderfully moist cake.
One of my favourite cakes to make at this time of the year is the Clementine Cake from Nigella Lawson’s How to Eat, a cake which Nigella has quoted as being one of the most popular from her first cookbook, one which happens to be a firm favourite for me – I have 3 copies (UK, US and iPad version) just to prove my point.

Happy New Year everyone!!! I hope you all had a wonderful festive season with your friends and families. They say that, when you have children, the days are long but the years are short. And indeed, I feel like the years are just flying by, and our two tiny tots are now not so tiny anymore. But I love watching them grow and blossom into fun and loving little people, even if catching a glimpse of one of their baby photos will make my heart skip my beat.
