I’m always admiring the gorgeous sweet treats on show in the glass display case at the Becasse Bakery when I head into the Westfield Sydney food court and today I found out that they taste as great as they look!
The best selling dessert in the house is the Banana and Salted Peanut Brittle Tart, which sounds like an unconventional pairing at first, but really works wonders together. The tart has a myriad of flavours and textures, from the crunchy peanut brittle pieces scattered on the top (some of it sweet and some of it salty) to the soft, banana cream hiding underneath it all.
Banana and Salted Peanut Brittle Tart, $5.90
Another revelation was the housemade Blueberry Marshmallow, hiding in a separate basket on top of the glass display cabinet. Biting into the fluffy lavender coloured cloud is a throwback to childhood days, although this marshmallow is certainly much more sophisticated than any other I’ve had. It is airy and light, melting in your mouth and leaving a flavour that is sweet at first, fruity in the middle and then finishing with a zing of tanginess. It’s also one of the better value options on offer at Becasse Bakery – at only $2.50 a pop!
Blueberry Marshmallow, $2.50
My friend had opted for the Passionfruit Cheesecake, which was creamy and tart with a nice buttery base. But the lack of apparent passionfruit flavour meant that it was not quite as impressive as the other two sweet treats we tried from Becasse Bakery.
Passionfruit Cheesecake, $5.90
There are still so many beautiful cakes and pastries at Becasse Bakery which I have yet to try and while not all of them are hits, there are enough highlights on the menu to keep me coming back for more to satisfy my sweet tooth.
