FREE-FROM COFFEE & WALNUT CAKE

GLUTEN FREE, VEGAN FRIENDLY & HEALTHY!

One of the nations favourite cakes... coffee & walnut cake 🤤. Perfect with a cup of tea on a Sunday afternoon! We always encourage people to live healthy, but with balance - so there's always opportunity for a sweet treat every once in a while. So we wanted to create a recipe that was free-from all of the nasties (gluten & dairy) - so very gut friendly! So you can enjoy this one without the sore tummy afterwards🙌🏻

For the coffee flavour we have used our Shroom Coffee blend - which includes organic instant Arabica Coffee (so tastes pretty damn good!)
