Brixton village market has become a kind of heaven for us of late, the brightest beacon of them all is the WAG free bakery, café and deli. I heard about it just as it was opening at the end of last year, and as I live south of the river and a mere 10 min bus ride from Brixton, it couldn’t of been more exciting to have a dedicated gluten and wheat free bakery near by. It took a few months to find their feet but over the summer this year their food has just got better and better and they now even supply a few other great restaurants in the village such as Honest burgers with some gluten free buns. Onto the cakes, they change their cakes regularly but there are a few that are firm favourites and you can pick up most times you visit, I especially like the Wagon wheels (Jools’ favourite), and the mini Victoria sponges and mini black forest gateau’s.
Yesterday I bought 2 mini black forest gateau as our weekend treat, it was as scrummy as always, nice light sponge, whole cherries, and luscious cream oozing out of the middle. Such a perfect portion too, and they look so cute! I would recommend that anyone make the trip to Brixton to check out Wag free, pick up some cakes and savour the buzzy atmosphere, enjoy
Mini Black forest Gateaux – 8/10 yum!
