Feel Free donuts

Seed & Sage Banana & Flaxseed Power Slice

'Homemade appearance, moist texture, delicious banana flavour – very more-ish. Really 'wholesome' thanks to the teff flour and the flax seed – and dairy and gluten free. Great use of exciting ingredients.'


Highly Commended

Borough 22 Cinnamon Sugared Doughnuts

‘Technically clever – great product and SO freefrom! A bit cakey cold but delicious flavour when warm – maybe slightly heavy on the cinnamon? Look just right!'

Mummy Bakes Awesome Almond Biscotti

‘Great classic biscotti – I have missed this so much! Good texture if just a tad gritty – not too sweet and great almond flavour – nice hint of lemon.'

Mummy Bakes Fiery Gingers

‘Excellent! Ginger levels deliver the 'fiery' description! Nice ginger kick – just crunchy enough with great flavour and not gritty. Beautiful biscuit – fabulous taste - shame it's not dairy free as well.'

Twice as Nice Bakery Hello Sunshine

‘Love that this is free from so many allergens. Attractively presented and quite delicious – zingy and light. Tastes of marmalade on toast with cream!!'



Auchtermuchty Cake Company Creole Fruit Cake

'Moist, rummy, crumbly and packed with fruit and nuts – lovely.'

Mummy Bakes Ginger Zingers Biscotti

‘Looks good – texture lovely and crunchy with ginger flavour coming through well. Impressive it is free from from gluten, wheat, dairy, eggs, nuts and soya!' 'Not entirely sure about the orange but just the right degree of crisp.'
