Vegan Christmas: Lazy Day Iced Fruit Cake

Lazy Day Vegan Iced Christmas Cake

Individual slices of vegan Christmas cake, with or without icing. This gluten-free cake is perfect for Christmas although it's available all year round. If you don't want to spend a fortune on a large vegan Christmas cake, or bake and ice your own, this might be perfect. It will also give you something gluten-free to give unexpected guests with allergies.

Holland & Barrett regard this as Christmas cake - it was prominently featured in the Christmas section of the branch we visited, alongside mince pies and chocolate santas.

The slices are small and delicate. The icing does a good job of holding the cake together, but the un-iced cake is pretty fragile. You could easily eat two or three of these finger-sized slices of cake with a cup of tea.

The wheat-free flour blend (rice, corn, potato, tapioca, soya) does a pretty good job in a fruit cake like this, where you're not looking for a super fluffy sponge. There is no grittiness apparent in the cake texture. We preferred the iced cake, as it had that really Christmassy feel and is a little more indulgent. The icing itself is sweet but pretty much unflavoured.

A pack of each of these cakes is a great cupboard standby for the Christmas period - you never know when a vegan might drop by for tea, and we do like a nice slice of cake!

Verdict: Nice Ice Baby
