This Chocolate Cake Was Inspired by Adobo

Would you try this?

Adobo is easily one of the most recognizable Filipino dishes, known for its salty tang with a peppery kick (depending on your family's recipe, of course). The dish might be best paired with rice, but who says it has to be just savory? Hiraya Bakery gives you a new way to enjoy this beloved dish with their Chocolate Black Pepper Bay Loaf (P160/slice; P1,700/whole cake), an adobo-inspired cake.

Yes, you read that right: adobo-inspired. Don't worry, there's no soy sauce or vinegar used in making this cake. The Chocolate Black Pepper Bay Loaf is a cake made with a moist coconut-milk base and a black pepper-spiced chocolate cake. It's frosted with a soy-salted dark chocolate ganache and comes with a bay leaf-flavored custard filling.
