Hi guys! It’s time for a new recipe. I wanted to make a gluten free cake for my friends and also try something new. I thought quinoa could be a good option and I have to say I was really surprised how good quinoa can be in sweets.

I love melted chocolate and this kind of reminds me of that. Also it has something of a chocolate icecrem. That for me is a good start!
