So moist and rich it’s not just 'good for a gluten free cake' - it’s just plain good.


If you're picturing the early days of gluten-free options, you might recall the often dry, crumbly cakes that felt more like a compromise than a treat. But, let's fast forward to today, where gluten-free cakes are stealing the show and often outshining their wheat-filled counterparts. It’s a sweet revolution that’s turning skeptics into converts, bite by bite.


Why are gluten-free cakes suddenly in the spotlight? It’s all about the ingredients. Gone are the days of relying solely on one type of gluten-free flour. Now, bakers use a clever mix of almond, oat, and coconut flours, which not only dodge the gluten but also amp up the flavours. Almond flour brings a rich nuttiness to the table, enhancing even the simplest of sponges, while coconut flour introduces a subtle sweetness that can reduce the need for extra sugar.

They're not just mimicking traditional cakes; they're inventing new ones. Imagine biting into a gluten-free carrot cake that’s so moist and rich it’s not just good for a gluten-free cake, it’s just plain good.
