Love and cake @ herne hill market

The new Herne Hill farmers market on Railton road in South East London, has been up and running for just over a month, it's got a good selection of stalls selling everything from meat, fruit and of course cakes!

There is a stall selling gluten free cakes as well as normal cakes called Love and Cake, they are only at this market and also do bespoke cake orders from their south london bakery.   They have 2 or 3 cakes that are made without gluten,  I have eaten two cakes from the stall and haven't personally had any adverse effects, they make regular cakes with regular flour too so worth asking them if you are worried about contamination.

The two cakes I have tried are the chocolate brownie and the spiced chocolate cake, the brownie was delicious, gooey, chocolaty and tasted divine, I offered Jules a taste and I almost didn't get it back tsk!, The chocolate cake was nice but a bit on the dry side, it's such a delicate balance to get a perfectly textured cake with gluten free flour and it must be harder still if you are baking regular cakes just fine, I appreciate having more than just a brownie to choose from though and liked the different flavours on offer. 

So the verdict - the Brownie was really good so

Love and cake chocolate brownie 8/10 gooeylicious
