So over on Reddit a little while ago I was asked this question…
What is the very best dessert?
I don’t think they realized what a minefield this is for me. I have SERIOUS feels on desserts.
I will go for ANYTHING puff pastry and custard adjacent. Like a Portuguese custard tart.
My favorite desert in existence is…
My other favorite dessert is pavlova, the sticky kind, and I like mine with clotted cream and raspberry (or if I am really lucky, passion fruit).
Occasionally I will go on a mad hunt for île flottante (floating island) but it’s hard to find in my area.
If I am super lucky I’ll encounter an Italian place offering diplomatico slice / Diplomáticos (Diplomatici). I like the northern Italian kind that is puff pastry, sponge cake, custard (not cream) AND fruit. Because it’s everything to love all at once.
Can you tell sugar is my drug of choice?
