Cake of the week at Poppy Jones

chocolate cashew cake

Being situated directly on my walking route to work in the morning, and making reliably good & strong soy flat whites, Poppy Jones in Eden Terrace is a regular stopping place for me.

Each week, a different cake from small local baker Grey Lynn Tarts sits on the counter & is sold by the slice. And just in time for Vegan MoFo, this week’s cake is vegan! It’s Chocolate Cashew Cake – “fudgeee vegan chocolate cake filled and topped with vegan cashew and coconut cream, and finished with vegan chocolate cashew brittle.”

I had a slice with coffee the other day, and it was delicious: moist, chocolatey but not too sweet, with a creamy filling and crunchy bits of chocolate on top. There were still a few slices left this morning – if you drop in tomorrow, you might be in luck.

If you’re not walking past Poppy Jones every day like me, you can find out about future Grey Lynn Tarts cake varieties (& thank them for making a vegan one this week) by connecting with them on Facebook.
