Another sweet treat was made by Green Gourmet Giraffe, Black Bean and Cacao Fudge.  A vegan, soy free and grain free recipe and the fudge looks so very tempting.


Cake Boi made these Top Hats, perfect for parties, cake sales or a fun afternoon tea/lunchbox treat.  My daughters have begged me to let them make some.

 

The creator of We Should Cocoa, Choclette, baked a Coconut Chickpea Chocolate Cake which is free from eggs, diary, wheat, gluten and refined sugars and looks absolutely scrumptious.

Mainly Baking made a dairy free and gluten free Pear, Almond and Chocolate Chip Cake which looks delicious and would also make a delicious pudding.


Lancashire Food baked this decadent and scrumptious Amaretto Chocolate Torte, great for afternoon tea or an impressive dinner party dessert.


Laura from I'd Much Rather Bake Than . . . . made some Five Ingredient Dark Chocolate Brownies which look very fudgy and delicious.  I'm sure I could eat at least a couple whilst enjoying a cuppa.

  2. mmm that all looks very uttlerly scrummy - there really is something for every occasion here - my heart is with the dense chocolate cakes but a more simple bikkie or cake with a cuppa will also make me happy. And the marshmallow treats look like fun

  7. I misread the announcement, I thought they were chococlate gf traybakes rather than just GF chocolate. Ah well I must pay more attention next time.
