It Just Has To Be Delicious

After the disappointment of Mrs S, we headed off to Chu bakery for a nice cake to take home for afternoon tea.

It’s a small-ish takeaway bakery on William Street just opposite Hyde Park, and being a Sunday afternoon, I didin’t imagine that they would have a fully stocked cabinet, but it was lovely to see some exquisite options in there.

Their signature choux puffs were available in raspberry and lychee flavour and matcha green tea and yuzu. Beautiful eclairs in burnt honey and praline flavours, and wonderful slices of vanilla and orange, and chocolate mousse.

The doughnuts also looked incredibly good. Salted caramel, boston cream with chocolate, cinnamon, and lemon. Then also a wonderful array of savouries and toasties.

We were there for the cakes though, and after much deliberation I chose a burnt honey cream eclair. The choux pastry was perfect with a generous filling of honey cream and a beautiful glossy chocolate ganache icing. Total yum.

My partner chose the vanilla and orange slice. A layer of moist orange and almond cake with a beautiful marmalde-y flavour, topped with a light and creamy vanilla mousse. Again the verdict was yum.

If you are ever in Highgate, pop into Chu. It’s a little expensive but very very worth it.
