When I first heard about the polenta cake, I thought “so who would eat that? “. It never occurred to me that such a cake could be delicious. At that time I was not forced to avoid gluten and I could eat anything I wanted, so who would choose polenta in dessert besides all those wonders. Polenta cake is the first I tried it at one presentation of gluten-free cakes, Of course, of all the cakes offered, I chose the last one. I was delighted, I did not expect such a delicious cake.
