Must Have Classic Desserts From Home Bakers
For your ultimate cheat meal, try one of these absolute classic desserts
In Karachi, there’s no shortage of home-based bakers. While we have a few staples when it comes to cakes, fondant or otherwise, this list focuses on the most popular and classic desserts from some of the best home bakers.
It isn’t a small task to make it to a Classics list. There is a lot of hard work, perseverance and a touch of magic that goes into these desserts. So, thank you to the dessert maestros that have made our lives so sweet.
Auntie Munawer- 3 Milk Cake
Auntie Munawer is now a household name and even though her menu has some delicious offerings, the three milk cake she makes is unparalleled.
Reema- Chocolate Lava Cake
One of the first to enter the home baker’s scene, Reema makes an orgasmic chocolate lava cake. Just return her tin plates please.
The Saucy Mistress- Naughty Saucy
It was difficult to pick one of these iconic ‘desserts in a jar’ since all of them are so.damn.good. The Naughty Saucy is the most popular, and the best-selling, dessert in the Mistress’ menu.
Shama- Chocolate Malt Cake
Shama Askari’s signature chocolate cake is the epitome of classic desserts in Karachi. No questions asked, hand me a fork, Delicious with a capital D.
The Poached Pear- Pavlova
Actually just go ahead and order the weekend variety box, you will not regret it. The poached pear has managed to make pavlova a popular dessert option- it is no easy feat to introduce new flavors to people who are quite set with their chocolate-y options. A bite of their lemon curd pavlova with fresh fruit is enough to excite the keenest of chocolate lovers.
Zoya marri- Banana Bread
It sounds simple enough to get right, but great banana bread is actually a rare find. You can try all you want, but trust us, you will not find a better banana bread anywhere else in Karachi.
Rania’s Sweet Eats- Bite-sized Treats
Mini cupcakes from Sweet Eats should be mandatory at all birthday parties. They are no fuss, clean, cute and delicious.
From the Kitchen of Fatemah Rawji- Black Magic Cake/ Tiramisu
It is difficult to narrow down one choice as a classic when it comes to Fatemah Rawji’s kitchen. So we’ve split it into personal favorite, Tiramisu and crowd-pleaser classic, black magic cake.
A quick, honorable mention goes to Bilal Khan from Petit Four.
We are not including him in this list as he has very recently opened up shop. But we will say that his Coffee Ice-cream Cake is nothing short of a classic.
