During the 1600s, England commemorated a day called Mothering Sunday, as celebrated on the 4th Sunday of Lent in honour of the mothers of England. Class structures were abandoned on Mothering Sunday and servants would have the day off from their duties. All were encouraged to return home and spend the day with their mothers. A special cake, called the mothering cake, was often brought along to provide a festive touch for the occasion. This flour-less cake recipe is not for novice bakers, and it is rumored to be the current Queen Mother's favorite chocolate cake. Try it out on your Mum this Mother's Day, as she is your Queen for a Day!
