Blackcurrant Spelt Tea Cake


This Blackcurrant Spelt Tea Cake is perfect to whip up as a treat for yourself this weekend or to bake for brunch! It isn’t overly sweet and tastes divine with coconut yogurt and fruit.

If you haven’t baked with spelt, I recommend you try it. It has less gluten than whole wheat flour so it's much kinder to the digestive system. Together with the Pukka Herbs Blackcurrant Tea and dried blackcurrants this cake makes the perfect sweet treat!
