Review - M&S Gluten Free Black Forest Gateau
As an Easter present I was bought a Gluten Free Black forest Gateau from Marks and Spencers. I don't know how much it cost but it was a good size. I forgot to measure but about 7 -8 inches across I guess.
The cake was a good texture and a nice chocolate flavour. Not quite as strong as I'd like but a good basic chocolate cake. The cherry jam was on a par with most I have had in black forest gateau, which has always been my least favorate bit to be honest.
The topping was good to a soft fudgey icing.
I'd rate it about 8/10.. for a general gluten free cake possibly higher but as in the chocolate cake catagory has to go against Ryton's chocolate brownies it has a hard act to follow in the chocolate cake stakes. It is nice to see more companies doing good gluten free items though.
