I attempt to make terrific quinoa dishes as much as I can. I also have a craving for sweets and I enjoy chocolate cake. For my most significant shock you can cook chocolate quinoa cake – it’s really delicious and you can utilize any kind of sweetener in stead of sugar so it’s going to be healthy too.

  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 4 eggs
