Happy New Year! I trust that everyone had a safe new year’s celebration. I’m looking forward to blogging and interacting with you in the year ahead.
If you’re like me, you’ve probably never heard of Euforia all natural thousand layer cake, but it definitely intrigued me. 1,000 layers? Each individually baked? That’s impressive.
Euforia makes a regular and a flourless gluten free cake. I was very skeptical of the gluten free status given that they use regular flour in their other cakes, but they do take precautions and their products are independently tested to less than 5 parts per million gluten. Here’s what they said about manufacturing:
“The gluten-free cakes are made in the same facility/on the same equipment as gluten-containing products. However, the GF cakes are produced on dedicated days when ONLY the GF products are prepared. We do a thorough cleaning/sanitation of all surfaces and equipment on the days in between the gluten baking days and the gluten-free days. Also, the volume of product we make with gluten is very small compared to the quantities of gluten-free product.”
Unfortunately, these cakes do contain butter and milk so I did not taste them, but the rest of my family sampled them. The cake comes in individually wrapped slices. It is available in vanilla and spice flavors.
The cake was moist, I could see that. My family preferred the spice flavor. Vanilla seemed plain to them. They thought the cake was good, but not great. Being a flourless cake, it has an eggy sponge cake taste and texture to it.
I really wish I had been able to taste them because my family is not good at critiquing finer foods. That’s what these cakes are. They are probably not something you would buy to have for your child’s after school snack. They would be perfect for accompanying coffee or tea while you chat with a friend.
