Chocolate Banana Espresso from Cedele

During our meeting with Vicki and Sihan at the Pastry Bar, we briefly talked about Cedele's cakes and surprisingly Yuan was curious about Chocolate Banana Espresso while Vicki and Sihan added that Chocolate Banana Espresso is Cedele's signature (apart from Carrot Walnut Cake).

As described by Cedele, Chocolate Banana Espresso is one that will melt in your mouth. This is a soft chocolate cake sandwiched with fresh caramelized banana, topped with espresso chocolate frosting, and finished with crunchy walnut strussel, oat strussel.

Anyway, all sliced cakes from Cedele costs $6 per slice and a cake set which comes with a drink (e.g. iced lemon tea, orange juice).

Personally, I didn't quite enjoy this as much as Yuan so he practically gobbled the entire slice up. Though satisfied, his little belly didn't appreciate those crunches and the heavy dessert... His expression was quite cute though.

The entire combination was just right with a slight doze of coffee, and the caramelized banana chunks goes pretty well with its chocolate sponge. Can't deny the fact that it is one of the better chocolate-banana cakes I have tried. On the downside, I thought the chocolate sponges are similar to Lana chocolate cake which is mildly flavoured with chocolate and that it is a little tad dry.

Yuan's comments

So far, Cedele's cakes haven't disappoint me. I liked this one for the combination of banana, chocolate mousse and crunchy oats. For those who love the banana nut crunch ceral will definately love this.
