Check this out, it looks delicious right? These little lovelies are made by Bakemeister, a new company entering into the free from market. They offer gluten, dairy and egg free products so catering for a fair amount of the free from community.
Anyway I was kindly sent a box of samples to try, which myself and a colleague ( also gluten free) put them to the test.
In the box we had :
- Chocolate Sour Cherry Brownies
- Italian lemon almond cookies
- Banana Loaf Cake
- Carrot Loaf Cake
- Oat, Walnut & Blueberry Cookies.
So how do they taste? Well my personal favourites were the almond cookies- a perfectly balanced combination of lemon and almond, coupled with a soft but chewy biscuit were fabulous. They are great with a coffee ( and we all know about my coffee obsession don’t we? ) Whilst we are on the topic of cookies the oat, walnut and blueberry cookies were not too shabby either, they have a crunch with a slight tartness of the blueberries which were satisfying on the tastebuds, and yes I * might* have dunked them, and they were amazing with tea.
The chocolate brownies were a treat as well, very dark, and rich with generous hits of sour cherries running through. I liked these as they are a grown up brownie, less of the sugar or that artificial sweetness you can get with some brownies, and more of a decadent chocolatey hit. Be warned though the portion size is generous so you might want to tackle them in two sessions.
Now my friend loved the carrot loaf cake, she enjoyed the moist sponge with ample walnuts through it. Whilst I loved the flavour I wasn’t as taken with the nuts, but I don’t really like nuts in many cakes, it’s just a personal preference thing. We did both agree that the banana loaf was a winner, moist and sticky with a lovely flavour- my tip is is great with a cup of tea, or warmed with custard as a pudding – win win if you please.
