If you take a wander down the supermarkets aisles to their free from range and hunt out a cake for tea or heaven forbid a special occasion you’re bound to be disappointed. If you’re lucky there will be a tiny 6inch by 2inch dry cake costing roughly the same as a large huge lush full of gluten cake the next aisle across. Thank heavens then for MunchCake.
Understanding exactly what it means to be a coeliac (their young son is a second generation coeliac) they’ve created award winning gluten free (and some dairy free too) tray bakes full of flavour and texture. With 4 awards under their belt already I couldn’t wait for more delivery to arrive. They are freshly baked to order so do allow 48 hours for the courier delivery and they arrive perfectly encased. With offerings from a gluten and dairy free banana and cocoa tray bake through (inc raspberry & white choc) to double chocolate cake there is a tray bake for every ones taste. I was lucky enough to receive Carrot Cake. I and my youngest son could quite happily eat, and on occasions did, carrot cake for breakfast lunch and dinner until I became a coeliac.
It arrived well packaged. A little squashed on top but the courier did apologise for that and said it was entirely his fault. A tiny bit of the icing was damaged but hardly anything to signify. When we took the layers of packaging off it looked fantastic. Both boys immediately demanded a piece as did my mum and grandma! And gosh was it moist!! And delicious. I think the awards might just do it justice and I strongly suspect they’ll be winning an awful lot more soon. It really was the best Carrot Cake I’ve ever eaten and the fact that it was gluten free was just the icing on the cake (excuse the pun) As you can see from the photos its spongy, moist and had a lovely amount of delicious cream cheese icing on top.
They RRP at £20.99 delivered and the tray bake is large enough for 12 generous portions or 24 mini bits. In all fairness I think the mini bits are just perfect. Thankfully the cakes can be frozen in case you can’t work your way through (but personally I’d give it a good try) I originally thought at the price ahh I’d make it myself for that price but having tasted this and having been baking cakes of both variety’s for years they aren’t overpriced. They are melt in the mouth, eat nothing all day, SCRUMMY!
