If there was ever a dessert that exemplified having a whole that's way more than the sum of its parts, it's gotta be the old-fashioned American dessert known as banana pudding. In essence it's just vanilla pudding, vanilla wafers, bananas, and whipped cream that are layered together and chilled—but take a spoonful and you'll see how the vanilla rounds out the tropical tinge of the banana, the wafers soften into cake-like chunks, and the billowy cream evens out the sweetness of the other elements. In particular, you can get a great version of the dessert at M Bakery; it's one of their bestsellers for a reason. But in the name of going beyond—its tandem of banana and vanilla works wonders in all sorts of confections after all—the bakeshop from New York recently came out with a whimsical spinoff on the said dessert: Meet the Banana Pudding Cookie.
M Bakery has new desserts, including a cookie-fied spinoff on their famous banana pudding:
In the Banana Pudding Cookie (P120/piece), M Bakery takes the flavors of their famous banana pudding and turns it into a palm-sized treat that's ever so slightly crisp on the outside, yet soft and cakey inside with a subtle chewiness that appeals to our inner (lost) child. It's studded with white chocolate chips that bring out the banana-y tinge in the dough, without taking over—and if you think it's great by itself, wait until you try it with the banana pudding itself for a total dessert-ception moment.
In line with their fourth anniversary, the bakeshop's also got other sweet new additions to their dessert roster. Fans of American chocolate bars like Kit Kat and Milky Way are in for a treat with the Fully Loaded Icebox Pie (P395/slice, P2,200/whole), where chunks of the said confections top a chilled pie with a fudgy brownie "crust" and velvety cream-cheese filling. Consider it a hybrid of candy, brownies, and cheesecake for those on the more-is-more-is-more camp. We don't know about you, but we say consider this a sign to schedule a revisit, stat.
