A Gluten Free Challenge - Eccles Cake

Ahead of our trip to Hastings for the WMF World Adventure Golf Masters minigolf tournament I’d contacted the excellent 1066 Cake Stand to see if they were able to make Gluten Free Eccles Cakes. They hadn’t made any before, but up for a food challenge they said they’d give them a go and have some ready for me to try when we were next in town.

When we arrived in Hastings ready to practice for the weekend’s tournament our first stop was to the 1066 Cake Stand in Hastings’ town centre at the Thursday market. We spotted the Eccles Cake and I bought one for my breakfast. Very tasty it was too. A job well done indeed.

I also bought some Latkes – two in a pack for 90p – and this savoury snack of a potato pancake made a great second course to my Eccles Cake! I also really like the Kugel that 1066 Cake Stand make.

Unfortunately I didn’t have room to try the Gluten Free Chocolate Cake they had made.

Shelley and Kevin at 1066 Cake Stand make and bake a wide-range of Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Wheat Free, Egg Free, Vegetarian and Vegan food. They are well worth a visit.
