Eating desserts anytime makes you happy and of course, Christmas desserts made with chocolate, boozy dried fruits, spell the ultimate indulgence for everyone with a sweet tooth. The creativity of chefs knows no bounds when it comes to playing around with desserts. An incorrigible dessert fan, here are my top 5 picks for Christmas.
Plum Cake at Love and Cheesecake, Andheri West
Christmas is incomplete without a slice of a rich and fruity Plum Cake. This Plum Cake in the shape of a Christmas tree, is enticing and pleases your palate too. Well-balanced, it boasts of fruits doused in alcohol and spices galore.
Christmas Yule Log at Theobroma, Colaba
Bûche de Noël or a Yule Log is a must-have on Christmas. Theobroma does a traditional one, available at all its outlets. Creamy, decadent and generously-filled, it pairs well with a cup of coffee and can be enjoyed any time.
Mulled Wine Brownies at Noir By Chef Manish Khanna, Juhu, Western Suburbs
Chocolate Brownies meet Mulled Wine and the union makes for one of the most delicious and sinful desserts. That is not all. Serve with a dollop of ice cream, this dessert is pure decadence, but once in a while, one is allowed to treat oneself.
Burnt Orange and Raisin Marzipan at La Folie Lab, Bandra
Burnt Orange and Raisin Marzipan is among the several Christmas treats available at La Folie. Offering 12 delightful days of your favourite goodies, one can indulgence in the Advent Calendar treats, which allow you to open a new window each day, to reveal an individually-wrapped, edible present.
Lemon Tart at The Bake House, Kala Ghoda
There is nothing like too much chocolate, but if you still want to enjoy a dessert in another flavour, this one is apt. Not cloyingly sweet, this well-made tart with a tangy flavour, proves to be a unique treat. (refer cover image)
