Darren McGrady, 60, who worked as a personal chef to the Queen, as well as Princess Diana and Prince William and Harry, revealed Kate Middleton often cooks her own meals and even does her own grocery shopping.
Speaking to Delish, the cook, who now lives in Dallas, Texas, said he starts the recipe by coating chopped dates with baking soda.
He then melts Muscovado sugar to make the sticky-sweet glaze.
Darren, who has cooked for five US Presidents, then adds the cake batter of eggs, butter, flour, sugar which he mixes with the liquid date combination, before steaming it for an hour.
The dessert, that’s been served at Buckingham Palace, is finished off with sauce and whipped cream.
He told Delish: ‘This is how we prepared it at Buckingham Palace’ he added that ‘the Queen loved this at Sandringham when it was really cold outside, and when she was at Balmoral, and the rest of the royal family did too.’

White Fish with Mushrooms
Prince William revealed his daily diet during a trip to Cornwall in November last year.
During a visit at Newquay Orchard, he wrote on a nutrition sheet that he eats two eggs and wholemeal toast with butter for breakfast.
Meanwhile he told nutritionist Monique Hyland he had a ‘rubbish’ sandwich for lunch, before having fish and mushrooms for dinner.
He also revealed he doesn’t drink coffee, but has three cups of tea each day because the ‘kids’ can keep him up and he ‘needs more cups of tea to keep him going.’
The royal went on to say he was likely to have a healthy dish like white fish with mushrooms for dinner.
He said he ‘doesn’t drink coffee’ so drinks ‘two or three cups of tea’ a day, as well as enjoying snacks like bananas and chocolate biscuits or brownies.
Meanwhile he added he might have a glass of red wine each day.

However, when Scott asked if the local takeaways thought someone was pulling their leg when someone placed an order for Kensington Palace, William explained: ‘It doesn’t usually get ordered to the Palace to be honest, normally someone goes and picks it up.’

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stopped off for a takeaway fish supper at their favourite chippy after a busy day of royal engagements yesterday.
William, 38, and Kate, 39, popped into the award-winning Anstruther Fish Bar, in the coastal town of Anstruther, where they were ‘regular customers’ while students at St Andrews University 20 years ago.
The couple ordered a £7.95 takeaway haddock supper, wrapped in paper, which they ate on a bench on the pier. They went back for ice creams – William’s in a cup, Kate’s in a cone – and chatted to staff, with Kate saying it had been a ‘trip down memory lane’.
Delighted residents snapped photos of the couple as they strolled casually down the street and waited in line in the chip shop.
They took their takeaway and sat side-by-side on a nearby bench, away from the main street.
Later the couple returned to the fish bar and picked up an ice cream to go. It is not known what flavours they ordered but the takeaway has more than 70.
Revealed: Prince William’s Spaghetti Bolognese
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 30g butter
- 1 large onion, finely chopped
- 1 carrot, scrubbed and chopped
- 2 sticks of celery, chopped
- 350g best quality lean beef
- 250ml dry white wine
- 120ml milk
- Pinch of nutmeg, freshly ground
- 1 x 400g tin Italian chopped tomatoes
- 1 tsp tomato purée
- 250g spaghetti or bucatini
- 50g Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
- 2 tbsp freshly chopped flat-leaf parsley, salt and freshly ground black pepper
To make the sauce, heat the oil and butter in a large saucepan and fry the onion over a medium heat until just softened, then add the carrot and celery and cook for a couple of minutes, stirring.
Use a fork to crumble the mince and add that to the pan, stirring to mix all together. Cook until the meat is no longer pink but do not let it brown. Pour in the wine and continue cooking until it has all evaporated. Then turn down the heat and stir in the milk and nutmeg, and cook over a medium heat until the milk has evaporated. Stir through the tomatoes and purée then season to taste with salt and pepper. Simmer very, very gently, uncovered, for about three hours, stirring from time to time.
When your sauce is ready, bring a big pot of water to the boil and add a teaspoon of salt. Add the pasta to the water, stir well with a wooden spoon and cook as per the packet instructions. Drain well. Divide the pasta between four bowls and add the hot sauce to each serving. Sprinkle with the parsley and serve the parmesan in a small dish.
