These delightful little tea cakes have a sweet coconut-vanilla flavor and a tender crumb. I love the dainty, yet satisfying single-serve portions.

Jennie’s snuck onto my radar recently with their fantastic free-from friendliness and amazing macaroons. Their website is aptly named “the maroon king,” but Jennie’s bakers have been working on some other sweet treats, including Jennie’s Pound Cake Mini’s. These gluten-free pound cake treats are also dairy-free, peanut-free, soy-free, kosher parve, and they’ve received gluten-free certification. But more importantly, they are pretty darn tasty.

These gluten-free pound cake minis come in both Classic and Marbled; I sampled the Classic variety.

I think what surprised me most was the coconut flavor! I know, I should have expected this twist from the macaroon king, but it still caught me off guard. Fortunately, I loved the coconut-vanilla vibe in these little gluten-free pound cake single serves. Overall, they were sweet, dessert-like, and delicious.

The main issue with gluten-free goodies is typically the texture, so I would be remiss not to address this. Jennie’s gluten-free pound cakes are nice and tender with a slightly fragile crumb, but they are generally cohesive and could easily pass-off as a wheat flour goodie. The only reason I knocked a star off is that they were a touch dry. Perfect as a tea cake, but not moist enough to call pound cake.

Dietary Notes: All of Jennie’s gluten-free pound cake minis are dairy-free, soy-free, and certified kosher parve. Some selections (such as the canisters at our time of review) are made in a dedicated gluten-free, peanut-free, nut-free, dairy-free facility. Jennie’s products do contain eggs (see note below). Check with the company on their manufacturing processes for all varieties if potential allergen cross-contamination is an issue for you.
