I chose the gluten and wheat free Double Chocolate cake, I've been trying to cut down on the amount of wheat in my diet and I was interested in what gluten free cake would be like. All the cakes from The Heavenly Cake Company are vegan and (with the exception of the gluten and wheat free cake) contain spelt flour rather than white refined flour. They even do an agave sweetened sugar free cake for diabetics or those on a low GI diet.
The icing on this cake was awesome, some of the best fudgy icing I've ever tasted. I enjoyed the flavour of the cake but I wasn't so into the dense texture, next time I'm going to try one of their spelt cakes.
I'd heard a rumor a while back that my favorite of the big supermarkets, the Co-op, had started selling vegan donuts. After traipsing around 3 different locations I'd almost given up when I heard they'd been spotted at the Co-op on Lewes Road. Well of course I headed straight there to see if I could find any...
...they even say vegan on the packet! Amazing and totally worth eating some wheat for! Since going vegan I've eaten baked mini donuts and sprinkle covered ring donuts but not proper jam donuts. They were exactly as I remembered and 5 donuts for 69p well that's a bargain I'm going to find hard to resist!
Whilst I was at the Co-op I also stumbled across these, also vegan, apple lattice squares.
I obviously couldn't resist picking up a box. Whilst not as awesome as the donuts they were still an exciting find. I also spotted vegan apple pie but decided that enough was enough for one day.
It's great that such a mainstream supermarket is not only making vegan goodies but actually labeling them as such.
I have a friend coming to stay from New York this week and we have a lot of eating planned, I'm most excited that I'm finally getting to go to Terre a Terre, just look at that menu, yum.
