On a cold and rainy morning I decided to pop into Riverhill Coffee Bar with my wee mum for a coffee and hopefully some gluten free cake. A few weeks ago the lovely Lidia in work let me try a little piece of some gluten free chilli chocolate cake she had found on her travels. It was so tasty and you would never guess that anything was missing. My biggest fear as a goodie was that my gluten free diet would mean “no gluten, no good”. Instead this chilli chocolate cake was one of the nicest cakes I had ever eaten. Another bonus is that Riverhill also do one of my favourite locally roasted coffee brands – Dear Green. If you haven’t tried Dear Green I recommend you do.
I remembered all this when we were in the rain in search of somewhere dry with good coffee. In we went. Today’s gluten free cake was carrot – one of my favourites! This was a challenge for any cake to stand up to, let alone a gluten free one. So I ordered a piece and a latte and my mum ordered one of their dark chocolate speciality hot chocolates.
It took a little time to arrive but it was worth the wait. So, so delicious! It tasted just as good if not better than any other carrot cake I had ever tried.
