Gluten free and lactose free Welsh cakes from Bakestone bakery

One of my new product finds at the Allergy and Free From show was Bakestone Bakery and their Welsh cakes

Now I had never had Welsh cakes before, so very interested to try them.

I would describe them as having a scone like texture, slightly sweet with a spice taste , reminding me a little of Easter treats like hot cross buns and Easter biscuits. Lucky for us these are available all year round.

The Welsh cakes tastes very homemade, in a good way! Not mass produced.


I did find them quite crumbly, but it wouldn’t put me off buying them again.

They can be enjoyed warm or cold on there own or topped with butter or maybe jam



As far as I know this could be a gluten free and lactose free first!?  I don’t know of any other gluten free and lactose free welsh cakes on the market.

Bakestone Bakery based in Pontypool Wales also produce coffee and carrot and walnut  cakes.

The Welsh cakes are now available to order online
