Nutritional comment

This is a recipe rich in refined sugars and calories, totally contraindicated for people with diabetes.

In balanced rations, it is a recipe for a healthy and varied diet. The effect on the body will be energizing and enjoyable, as the macadamia nut blends perfectly with white chocolate. However, nothing will excuse us to walk to balance this cake intake and burn the daily calories.
