Gluten-Free Cream Tea for Coeliac Awareness Week
From 13th–19th May it’s Coeliac Awareness Week. Coeliac (pronounced see-liac) disease is often misunderstood; it’s not form of food intolerance but an autoimmune disease, where the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues. This immune reaction is triggered by gluten, a collective name for a type of protein found in the cereals wheat, rye and barley. A few people are also sensitive to oats.
To highlight Coeliac Awareness Week and (hopefully!) the start of summer here’s a tempting idea for a gluten-free cream tea. The highlight of this indulgent spread is the gluten-free and very tasty Sconeybun – a scone/bun hybrid creation from the lovely people at Honeybuns. Now everyone can enjoy a proper British cream tea. Gluten? Who needs it?!

We sell these buns frozen so you can keep them in the freezer until needed, and they have three days shelf life once defrosted.
