The lovely Leon

Not something I've baked this time, but I was so impressed with the cake selection (and food in general) at Leon, which we stumbled across in Spitalfields Market on a recent trip to London, that I thought I'd write about it. Their healthy fast food menu notes which items are gluten, wheat, dairy free, vegetarian etc, so it made choosing pretty easy! I was most impressed when we came to choose something for dessert, and I discovered that not one, but almost all of the lovely cakes on display were wheat and gluten free! I usually go for the one choice that there is, but this day I was able to not just stare longingly at the cakes, but to have my cake and eat it (and some of James' too!)

Chocolate tart and pecan pie - both with amazing gluten free pastry. I think this will be a new favourite place when visiting London!
