About the bake

This ginger loaf cake is gluten free. Make with Allinson's buckwheat blend, this loaf bakes, rises and tastes just like a loaf cake with gluten. Taste and texture is not compromised. This loaf cake is perfect with a cuppa. Bake the day before and let it rest as the flavours will mature and taste better (in our opinion) the next day.  If you love this recipe idea, why not try our Gluten Free Banana Loaf next?
