Free from cakes

Delicious cakes using free from ingredients

Cakes are deliciously sweet and fluffy delights to eat. We often associate cakes with a way to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays, weddings and anniversaries, but they can always be enjoyed as an afternoon sweet treat too. Just perfect, and they go particularly well with a hot beverage such as tea or coffee.

Free from cakes are especially important, as they allow those with certain food intolerances to enjoy cake as much as everyone else! Gluten free, dairy-free and vegan cakes, allow everyone the opportunity to enjoy a delicious cake on their special occasions.

At Sponge we have identified the need to create a range of free from cakes that not only look good but taste as good as non-free from cakes. We tried many different gluten free, dairy free and vegan cakes, and we always felt a little disappointed as they were dry and crumbly and didn’t leave us with the same satisfaction as traditionally made cakes. So, we set out to make our range as delicious and moist as our standard cake range, while using free from ingredients to make our cakes ideal for those with dietary requirements.

Gluten free cakes

Our gluten free cakes are much like our standard sponge cakes, with one simple but effective difference. We use quality gluten free flour instead of traditional flour to create our light and fluffy gluten free sponge cakes; most people can’t tell the difference! They still have the same great flavour and texture as our standard flavours, here are a few of our favourites that we’re sure you’ll love.

Gluten free Victoria Sponge

This delightful cake with its traditional flavours is simple and truly scrumptious with a cup of tea! Free range eggs, gluten free flour mix, ground almonds and natural vanilla flavouring create a wonderfully light gluten free vanilla sponge. English butter and natural vanilla create a thick and creamy buttercream matched perfectly with raspberry jam.

Gluten free Chocolate cake

Our delicious chocolate cake tastes as good as it looks. The moist and indulgent gluten free chocolate sponge is made with rich chocolate, gluten free flour, ground almonds and free range eggs. English butter and chocolate create the ultimate chocolate buttercream and white chocolate flakes decorate the top. Yummy!

Gluten free Millionaires Cake

An indulgent cake to say the least; there’s a reason it has got an expensive name, as every bite is so deliciously rich. Half of the sponge is hand-made with natural vanilla flavouring, gluten free flour mix, ground almonds and the other half is made with indulgent chocolate. Caramel and natural toffee flavouring create a luxurious buttercream. Topped with a pretty drizzle of milk and white chocolate as a finishing touch.

Dairy free cakes

When you have a food intolerance, it can be really tricky to find a delicious cake to satisfy your sweet tooth and help you celebrate special occasions. Our dairy free cakes are great for those with a dairy intolerance, allowing them to enjoy a slice of a beautifully light and fluffy cake without worrying about the dairy.

Dairy free and gluten free Elizabeth cake

If you have both a gluten intolerance and a dairy intolerance, we have a cake for you too! This beautifully fluffy and mouth-watering fruity sponge is made with juicy sultanas, free range eggs, lemon juice, gluten free flour mix and ground almonds. Quality apricot jam binds the sponge together and demerara sugar is dusted on top for added crunch. A gorgeous cake to have for an afternoon tea with a hot drink!

Vegan free from Cakes

Whether you have intolerance to eggs and dairy or you choose not to consume animal products, we respect that you too should be able to celebrate in style with a delicious cake on your birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions. That’s why we have dedicated time to perfecting our vegan cakes to make them as delicious as our standard cakes. Just because you are vegan doesn't mean you should settle for a dry or stodgy cake!

Vegan Chocolate cake

Just as yummy as our standard chocolate cake; Soya milk, chocolate and vegan butter create our delicious and indulgent vegan chocolate sponge. Our secret ingredient is coffee which really brings out the chocolate flavour! Nibbed cocoa pieces are sprinkled on top give some added crunch.

Vegan Carrot Cake

A deliciously moist vegan sponge made from grated carrots, soya milk, walnuts, sultanas and cinnamon. Complimented with creamy vegan buttercream made from vegan butter and a dash of natural lemon flavouring. And a finishing touch of crunched walnuts on top. Delicious!
