Author Notes

I am an avid reader of culinary blogs, especially when it comes to healthy food and organic. Among these blogs, I love Green Kitchen Story. You may already know this couple. They keep the blog together and published (or suggest?) An application on the Appstore. I wanted to revisit (but mostly French adapt) one of their recipes in my own way, their Blueberry, Lemon and Almond cake. When I think adapt, it is mainly replace the almond flour (which costs a fortune) with almond powder and chestnut flour that are much less expensive. I also decided not to make glazing that I generally find too sweet. —Mary Devinat

This recipe is interesting, but it is missing the quantity of the baking soda and saying 'post' the blueberries is an odd phrase. Also, should the consistency be a bit crumbly... describing the consistency for gluten-free recipes would be helpful, as these flours don't react the same way as wheat flours do. It's in the oven - fingers crossed!
