Home Bakers to Support This Week for Cheesecakes, Tres Leches + More
Treat yourself to these amazing baked goods today.
(SPOT.ph) Whether you're stressed, bored, or just plain hungry, you can always turn to a dessert to lift your spirits up. Our suggestion? Take advantage of your cravings and support Manila's great home bakers. Here, we introduce five we've come across this week who've wowed us with their amazing creations.
A lot of cheesecakes can be heavy and dense—and that style certainly has its place, but imagine a cheesecake that's creamy yet light and lush, imbued with the tropical profile of mango and tanginess of lime. That's precisely what you get with Critical Baker's Mango Lime Cheesecake (P1,420/six inches, P2,145/eight inches). Silky yet delicate, it's the kind of cake you keep coming back to without it being cloying. Aside from the Mango Lime Cheesecake, Critical Baker also makes a great Matcha Chocolate Cake (P495/half, P970/whole) with a tender crumb that just about melts in your mouth. You can message them on social media to get your fix.
Sundays on Toast
Looking for a new sourdough bread to try? We suggest Sundays on Toast, who makes wonderfully chewy, rustic loaves in flavors that include the Classic (P220/730 grams), Jalapeno (P250/760 grams), Cranberry Lemon (P270/760 grams), and Toasted Walnut & Honey (P270/800 grams). They're great on their own, but even better when, well, toasted (whether or not it's a Sunday!) and served with a generous pat of butter. You can send them a message on social media to order; they deliver their bread on Sundays and Mondays. Payment options include BDO and BPI bank deposit.
For orders, send a message to Sundays on Toast on Instagram.
Love milk? You'll love these tres leches cakes by Bakey's, which comes in a few flavors. Purists can go for the Classic Tres Leches (P420) while those who love a salty-sweet bite can try the Cereal Milk Tres Leches (P470). But it's the Strawberry Tres Leches (P500) that really caught onto us—it's got a not-too-sweet, creamy tres-leches base that's oozing with milk, softly whipped cream, and just the right amount of juicy fresh strawberries for a tangy counterpoint. Keep your eyes on their social media pages for updates on their next order dates.
Yema lovers, you're in for a treat with Muysdough's Yema Swirls (P390/box of six, P540/box of nine): soft bread rolls with a creamy frosting and sweet, glistening yema drizzled on top. It's the kind of treat that's best reserved for when you really want to indulge, paired with a hot cup of coffee. You can get your fix of these buns by sending Muysdough a message through social media, or through 0920-905-3016.
Amelia's Recipes specializes in cookies that highlight macadamia nuts, whose buttery, roasted profile contribute a one-of-a-kind crunch—whether you go for the Dark Chocolate Macadamia (P599/six pieces, P999/dozen) or White Chocolate Macadamia (P599/six pieces, P999/dozen) variants. The former has a light sprinkling of sea salt that brings out the chocolate's bittersweetness, while the latter has huge chunks of creamy white chocolate to complement the buttery macadamias. Get your fix by sending them a message on social media with your Instagram handle, complete name, contact number, and orders.
