Some of you may have gathered that I've been away for a few weeks. My son and his wife live in Toronto and earlier this year we had the most fantastic news - they were expecting their first baby, our first grandchild. We had already decided to visit them this year since 2012 is the year of my husband's 60th birthday and our 35th Wedding Anniversary but this news was the icing on top of the cake!
On 20th August we flew out and met our beautiful new grandson, only a few days old. So many wonderful moments! Whilst I am hugely delighted that my son and his wife are very privileged to be living in Canada, we miss them so much and this holiday was therefore so very, very special. Over the next couple of weeks I'll be sharing some of the wonderful "adventures" we were lucky enough to experience during this visit.
During the past few months I've been looking out for gluten-free places to eat and shops to visit on our travels and at the very top of this list was Bunner's Bakery. When we arrived at the bakery, I was as excited as a small child in a sweet shop! You see, we don't have gluten free bakeries in the North of England and if they do exist, they are nothing like this one. Not only is the bakery gluten free, it's also vegan which means all of us can enjoy the beautiful baked goods I have seen so highly recommended on the internet.
A texture like silk, a wonderful natural strawberry flavour and icing which was just sweet enough! In a word, YUM!
Doesn't it look delicious! It definitely lived up to its appearance! Here is a picture of it sliced before we ate it later. I can definitely recommend it!
So, if you're anywhere near to 3054 Dundas Street West in Toronto, I highly recommend you pay them a visit! You won't be disappointed! BUT ring before you go. We paid them a visit later in the week to buy more of their savoury pockets but they had only just gone into the oven at 10.30 am and we couldn't wait the half an hour it was going to take to bake them.
