Product Review: Honeybuns bakery

Another exciting package arrived in the post – a new cake mix from Honeybuns Bakery! A new product now available and it is Gluten Free – so is great for people with gluten intolerances. I do like doing reviews for Honeybuns because the produce is so yummy and moreish so I was happy to get stuck in and test this new cake mix!

I followed the easy recipe included on the tin and did a variation which was also included – The Lemon Drizzle Cake. The mix all arrives in a funky tube which has a vintage kitsch design on it. All I did was mix the two bags together in a bowl, added 2 free range eggs and some butter. Then mixed and popped in the oven. The Lemon drizzle cake called for zest added to the mix (which I did) and a sugar/lemon juice topping. Once added this created a lovely, moist cake.

It was a really easy pack to use and included lots of ideas how you could make the most of it and lots of inspiring recipe variations to utilise. Lastly, I would say often Gluten Free items are very dry and crumbly but this new mix was fantastically moist and had a good texture.

Here is a link to their tasty goodies on their website if you fancy taking a gander:

Product Review: Honeybuns Tasty Gluten Free Flapjacks!

I got some scrummy gluten free flapjacks from Honeybuns Bakery to try today! I had a Plain Flapjack and Cranberry and Pecan Flapjack.

Honeybuns is a bakery based in Sherbourne in Dorset, UK and they cook all their gluten free goods in small handmade batches.These flapjacks I tried were particularly good as they are not only completely gluten free (sustainable source of gluten free oats) but also they still taste like normal flapjacks with a lovely buttery rich texture, due to their traditional longer baking of 45 minutes.

I like the fact that the packaging is eco friendly. Also the Honeybuns Bakery have won some great titles and prizes for their products. This includes the Supreme Champion, Best of British and Best Speciality in the South West in the National Great Taste Awards with the Guild of Fine Food. Also they have 3 Great Taste Double Star Gold Awards too!

The Pecan and Cranberry Flapjack was packed full of juicy cranberries and chunky pecans – very tasty for gluten free and non gluten free taste buds!
