Gluten Free Afternoon Tea?

Now I've already talked about my love for Marks and Spencer's clothes in a previous fashion post, but I have yet to mention their food. Having recently re-opened their store in Brussels (we've had to live without them, here in Belgium, for 14 years people!) their main attraction is their GINORMOUS Food Hall! Amongst which, a selection from their "Made Without Wheat" range (unfortunately I couldn't find this selection on their website to link to, but visit any of their Food Halls in person and you'll be sure to come across it).

As a gluten free eater this, of course, is the little niche I like to head for when I go every so often for a food shop. Now I know I've enthused about the joys of baking (especially Delia Smith recipes) in a previous post but sometimes you just can't be bothered to bake from scratch. Being a gluten free eater, this rather limits your options especially concerning baked goods. This is where Marks and Spencer can't be beaten, it has a range of fresh gluten free cakes at your disposal, including decorated celebration and birthday cakes (which don't have to be eaten on said special days..."A very merry unbirthday to me, To who?, To me, Oh you!") and of course if you don't follow the Mad Hatter's philosophy on life (who wouldn't, I say "let them eat cake!") there are also your standard combinations to choose from; Carrot & Walnut, Coffee & Walnut, Chocolate Fudge, Lemon Drizzle and the classic Victoria Sandwich (featured here).

So now you can enjoy your cuppa with a nice slice of cake, hassle free (important to note that they're not egg or dairy free). Bon appétit!!!

What's your favourite cake to eat with your tea?

What's your favourite tea? I'm currently loving Twinings' Decaffeinated Earl Grey :)

And a very merry unbirthday to you!
