The cakes at Chalk Farm are pretty simple. Maybe even ordinary if you compare them to multi-tier pastries or delicately piped desserts. Yet I'm sure we can agree that there is something magical about simple things done well.
Coffee desserts makes me happy so coffee cake with coffee buttercream frosting makes me really really happy. I just love how assertive the coffee flavour is. The coffee cake might look commonplace but I have not come across anyone else who makes coffee cakes. We need to have a chat, bakers.
The good old fashioned sugee cake was chosen for my mum. The almond flavour was pretty strong so it would work for you or against you, depending on how nuts you are about almonds.
When I look back at my previous visits to Chalk Farm, every visit to chalk is never complete without one of their salted caramel offering. An airy spongey treat topped off with the most delectable salted caramel buttercream. All together now, swoon!
