I was so excited about this, the title deserved two exclamation marks…


I used to LOVE Battenburg cake. As in, I would eat it whenever I could get my hands on it!

When I became gluten-free, I missed it desperately, but eventually the pink and yellow gap in my life faded away.

That is, until I received a slice through the post from Stephanie Palmer, the genius behind Steph’s Free From Cakes.

Her creations never leave anything to be desired, but this was just in a completely different league of its own!

Pink and white sponge, sandwiched with jam and wrapped in marzipan – if that doesn’t do it for you, then I don’t know what will!

The sponge was moist, and the jam added extra moisture to the cake, which was perfect. The sweet marzipan round the edge just finished off the whole piece!

There aren’t really any words to explain how excited I was to eat Battenburg again, but this really was inexplicably wonderful. Just how I remember it, Stephanie Palmer truly is a legend in the kitchen!
