Being Rude

I’ve been very Rude today.

I wasn’t to start with though as I didn’t have time! I went to Body Pump first thing, then stopped at the farm shop up the road on the way back. I’d made the owner a GF chocolate cake while I was off work… and she said it had been bought by some people who didn’t need GF food but just thought it looked good – and they loved it πŸ™‚

She asked me to make some more so that means with the cafe, for which I’m still making one cake a week, I’ve got two customers… a couple more and I’ll be able to give up work.

When I say “a couple” of course, I mean quite a lot…. Details… πŸ™‚

I made her two single-tier chocolate cakes with chocolate buttercream – and forgot to take a picture, hence the rubbish phone-in-car one:

I made one for the cafe at the same time, then cleaned the house and had lunch while they were cooking, iced one lot and took them to the shop, cycled to the yard to ride Dave, got drenched in a rainstorm that started as we started riding, carried on as I cycled home – and stopped once I was inside. Thanks.

But in between times…. I was being very Rude. Want to see pictures…?!

Of course you do.

The lovely Rude Health people sent me some of their newly-launched corn thins to try. I’ve had and enjoyed their multigrain thins so I had a feeling I’d like these… but still, I did my researchΒ thoroughly πŸ™‚

Savoury, with Philadelphia for lunch:

Sweet, with cashew butter and jam:

And totallyΒ naked. I told you there was some Rudeness involved. Cover your eyes, kids πŸ™‚

I’d like to point out that Rude Health didn’t pay me or anything to say how great these are (although if they want to, I’d be more than happy to oblige…) but they really are!

Even on their own, they’re really nice. I love a good rice cake with toppingness but some plain ones taste not unlike polystyrene, which isn’t one of my favourite flavours.

These are light and crispy and all that’s in them is organic maize and a smidgen (less than 1%) salt. And a pinch of sunshine too, apparently πŸ™‚

I really like Rude Health as a company too. When I met Nick, the boss, at the Gluten and Allergy Free Show in May, we had a really good shared rant about healthy food and he told me, for example, the reason most companies make rice cakes thick is because it’s more economical (the Rude Health ones are thin) and how he doesn’t like the amount of sugar in lots of cereals, etc… and that was before I knew he was the boss!

I reckon this is a company with the right attitude. I also I reckon these thins are definitely one to buy again and would recommend them whether you’re GF or not… they’d even beΒ worth buying just to laugh at the comments they print on the box (especially the top flap…!)

Have you tried any Rude Health products – what do you think?

  1. ahahah clever you! BUT UM your food is being sold? SO COOL!!

  2. Hee hee, thank you! And yes, I’ve been making GF cakes for a cafe – and now the farm shop! Really cool to be able to cook and make a few quid from it πŸ™‚

  3. I haven’t tried anu Rude health products but these sound delcious! I will totally keep my eyes out for them though, because I would love to use them to scoop up my smoothies! πŸ™‚

  4. This post is so cute πŸ˜€ I haven’t tried any, but those corn thins sound great!
    I bet they’d be good with a bean chilli or with a veggie soup!

  5. Your cake is so pretty! I always admire people that can make cakes look good. Mine always look like a mess, haha!

    That is such good news about your cake baking-I would love to do something like that πŸ™‚
    And yay to the rude health thins- I tried the oaty ones and then they sent me some multigrain ones which I love even more. And you are right their ethos is so good.

    • It’s great as long as I keep organised and make them in advance so I don’t end up making buttercream at 11pm on a work night – it’s happened before!
      And I love the multigrain ones too, love this company πŸ™‚

  7. I’m such a big fan of Rude Health stuff, I love that you know that buying their stuff your not getting all the crap sugars and processed stuff. Still yet to try the thins, must give them a try!

    • That’s exactly it; only two ingredients is always a good thing!
      And give them a go, the multigrain ones ae great… I can’t have the oaty ones but imagine they would be delicious too πŸ™‚

  8. I’ve never tried any Rude Health stuff, but they look good. I like rice cakes, but I hate how they can taste like cardboard without any toppings.
    Your cakes always look so good – it’s very cool that you sell them πŸ™‚

    haha! I love this post “cover your eyes kids” πŸ˜‰ so funny.
    Those sound really interesting! I’m intruiged now and want to try…

    How Ruuuude! haha. These look yummy, an a product from the uK – hurray!! I have tried their oat puffs which are great for a cereal base and really low in sugar. The cake looks so lush, I love those big chocolate buttons – yum!

    • I know, it was the low sugar content that made me notice them because cereals can have so much, even the “healthy” ones!
      And giant chocolate buttons are just so good – it was risky buying a bag to decorate cakes with because now they’re in the house πŸ™‚

    I don’t think I’ve tried anything by Rude Health other than the Fruity Date Porridge, but I would certainly like to! Those multigrain and corn thins I’ve been seeing everywhere look great. and I agree with Laura that it’s nice to see they’re so crap-free!

    If I wasn’t so curmudgeonly about my birthday I’d be ordering a cake from you for it! Who knows, come November I might have changed my mind πŸ˜‰ Do you think they’d ever be transportable, in individual or smaller portion sizes? I’ve never seen GF and vegan cakes that look so good outside of US bakeries featured on blogs!

    • Ooh, that porridge sounds so good! Shame it’s not GF oats but definitely try these; they’re brilliant and the crap-free-ness is such a plus πŸ™‚
      And I’d be more than happy to make and send you one! If it was doable to send, let me know!
      And thank you so much, such a compliment πŸ™‚

    that cake looks great! πŸ™‚
    I’ve never heard of “Rude Health” products but they sound like a great company!! πŸ™‚

  14. Errign says:

    I’m guessing Rude Health is an English company, so I’ve never tried them, but your cake looks delish!

  15. I love Rude Health products- I haven’t tried the thins yet, must change that!

  16. I really want to try these, I love the rude health cereals so hopefully my tesco will stock these soon! It’s ace your cakes are getting around, I hope you end up with your own GF bakery πŸ˜€

  17. Hmm, hadn’t heard of this brand. And cute cake! Looks quite delicious.
