How could a person not fall in love immediately with something which is called a Queen Cake??? I think that would be a very difficult thing to do . . . but these are not just cakes to fall in love with . . . these are cakes with a bit of a history, and I do so love to eat food with a history. There are recipes for Queen Cakes which date back as far as the 18th century, with little or no variation from the one which I have here for you today.
