Almondy Cakes – 100% Naturally Gluten Free
You may already know about Almondy. They’re the Swedish bakers who have teamed up with some of the world’s biggest confectionery brands to produce such delights as almond cake topped with Toblerone and almond cake topped with Daim. Amazing, right?
Hold on to your hats. Now they’ve partnered with two more superbrands, Cadbury and Philadelphia, to add more scrumptious cakes – or tårta to give them their official name – to their best selling range.
We were lucky enough to get our sticky mitts on the new cakes recently and they were sweet, creamy and delicious. They’re 100% naturally gluten free, as they’re made with an almond base inspired by an original Swedish recipe dating from the 1890s, and they’re free from artificial colourings and preservatives too.
Right – to the cakes. So the Philadelphia Almond Layered Cheesecake with Lemon has a tasty almond base with layers of creamy Philadelphia and a covering of fresh lemon frosting. Is your mouth watering yet? It should be. You can eat it like this, of course. Or you could top it with fresh raspberries, blueberries and strawberries for a super special after dinner dessert. You could pass it off as homemade then, and no one would be any the wiser.
The Cadbury Chocolate Mousse and Almond Cake has a crunchy almond base topped with a delicious chocolate cream and a layer of frothy chocolate mousse, covered in Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate and a sprinkling of Cadbury Dairy Milk buttons. Yes, it’s a lorra lorra chocolate. And it’s sweeeeeeeeet. But because the mousse is really light and the base is nice and thin and crunchy, it’s not in the least bit cloying. Perfect for dessert, perfect with an afternoon cup of mint tea and perfect for kids too.
So where can you find them? If you’re in the UK, you can find them in the regular frozen dessert section of Asda, Budgens, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, and Tesco. Live somewhere else? Take a look at Almondy’s cake finder map.
Don’t be put off by the ‘frozen dessert’ thing. They’re perfect to keep in the freezer for when gluten free friends and family members pop round. And they really don’t taste like frozen desserts. They only take an hour to defrost although the Cadbury chocolate mousse cake is nice to leave a little more frozen so it’s like ice cream! Once your cake has defrosted just keep it in the fridge (if there’s any left!).
The Philadelphia Cheesecake and the Cadbury Chocolate Mousse Cake retail at £3.19 each, which is extremely good value we think.
