Nut Free Battenburg

Nut Free Battenburg

When you think of afternoon tea, you thing of a classic Battenburg. However, the outside is wrapped in marzipan which contains almonds. So we wanted to create a Top 14 allergen friendly and Nut Free Battenburg version so everyone can enjoy a slice.⁠

To create the pink and yellow sponge we used our cornbread which turned out amazingly and we were so happy with the colour and taste.

For the nut free marzipan you only need 4 ingredients which is perfect and it was super east to make.⁠⁠

This is such an impressive Nut Free Battenburg that anyone can enjoy as it is free from the Top 14 Allergens.
