The Flute - Apple and Walnut cake
It has been a little while since I blogged about a delicious Flute bakery treat. Today I got there just after opening. It was brilliant, for a moment, it was just me in the shop and the shelves were packed full.
The macaroons were piled high. Usually I see it with just a few and lots of empty space left. The breads were stacked in great piles and the danishes, filled brioches and individual sweets filled every spot looking (and smelling) amazing. For a moment I contemplated how much cash was in my wallet (they are cash only) and pondered just how much I could purchase. But I brought my self back down to earth and returned to the job at hand, you see I had come in search of a cake. There must have been 20 on display but the one that caught my attention was this delicious apple and walnut gluten free cake.
It was amazingly moist and delicately spiced. It had a smattering of currents, chunks of walnut, the delicious tang of apple and a great hit of cinnamon and nutmeg. If left to my own devices I'm pretty sure I could have eaten the whole thing, because it was also really quite light and fluffy.
Like all Flute cakes it was beautifully presented, topped with three tiny preserved apples. Ahhh, this bakery can do no wrong!
