    This unassuming little muffin with the healthy-sounding name was a surprise hit with my kids and the best gluten-free product we have ever tasted. Looking forward to regular visits to your stall at One New Change!

    Tastes amazing, really pleasantly surprised as I’m not gluten-free but would choose this cake.
