Crazy Russian Girls Cake is Crazy-Good!

My best friend lives in Bennington, VT and visits as often as he can.  And, when he does, he is gracious enough to bring along gluten-filled (for my wife and himself) and gluten-free (for me!) treats.  He’s lucky enough to live in a town where a local baker has taken up the gluten-free baked goods gauntlet.  Crazy Russian Girls Bakery was born out of a love of food, baking, and feeding people.  They welcome everyone with their food and it’s no wonder why. 

As I mentioned, I’m only able to inhale in these GF treats a few times a year, but let me tell you, they are delicious.  I’ve enjoyed everything from cupcakes to a multi-layered chocolate cake.  Every bite is wonderful.  (My apologies to those who are allergic to chocolate.  I’m not sure what is worse, chocolate or gluten!) 

Each cake is moist and the texture is spot on.  There’s no gritty feel to their cakes and they hold up to their gluten-filled counterparts.  The frosting is nothing to shake a stick at either, but what’s not to love about sugar, butter and cream anyway!  No complaints here.

My wife and I lived in Bennington for a short while.  It was back in the day where no one knew what gluten was, or how to be free of it either.  There was only one health food store in town selling only some of the very earliest of GF products.  I mostly made everything at home and focused on things that were naturally gluten free – like vegetables, meats, rice, and potatoes – go figure!  I wish the bakery had emerged back then – I would have been there every morning to get a coffee and a nice treat on my way into work. 

Well, I’m glad they are here now.  And … I’m even more glad that I have a great friend who brings me treats I can eat.  Yum!  And, yes, Crazy-Good!
