Cake blogger and cookbook writer Ditte Julie of Danish television series ‘Den store Bagedyst’ fame, in collaboration with Mill & Mortar, has developed an organic spice blend for cakes and desserts with fruit and berries. Last spring, Ditte Julie addressed us with an idea of a spice mixture that would work wonders in the sweet kitchen. And that’s how CAKE FACTOR was born.
CAKE FACTOR has a well-balanced flavour of allspice, powdered nutmeg, star anise, real Sri Lanka cinnamon with hints of clove and ginger.
