No Palm Oil in Gluten-free Erlenbacher Almond Cake Slices

Erlenbacher Backwaren’s newly introduced pre-sliced almond cakes, both gluten-free and containing no palm oil, are positioned by the Groß-Gerau, Germany-based frozen baked goods specialist as “ideal for gluten-intolerant customers and consumers seeking responsibly chosen ingredients.”

As for the question of whether the cake should be creamy or crispy, one does not have to decide since the slices combine both tempting qualities in the form of roasted almonds and soft butter cream. But a choice may ultimately have to be made between two variants, unless an option to enjoy each during one sitting is taken.

Mandel Schnitte 3DThe Nestlé S.A. subsidiary company is bridging the gap between those with a passion for classical, light butter cream and chocoholics who can never say “no” to sweet cocoa cream. With chocolate or without, almonds highlight the two cake creations.

Here’s an overview of the offerings, which are ready to serve after a very brief defrosting time.

  • Almond Success Cake: The name says it all for this product – especially since almonds are again successfully trending big time on the culinary scene in Europe and beyond, and enticing butter cream lies between fluffy almond sponge layers. The topping to round off the cake is another layer of butter cream and roasted almonds. Fifteen slices come 1.050g package.
  • Mandel Schoko Schnitte 3DAlmond Chocolate Cake: The recipe combines a nutty taste profile with a fine hint of chocolate to savor. Chocolate has been added to the butter cream middle after making an impressive first impression as an eye-catching icing base for roasted almond slivers topping the cake. Weighing in at 1.250g, the pack contains 17 slices.
