Wildflour’s New Dessert Is Like Mango + Strawberry Shortcake’s Even Lighter Cousin

(SPOT.ph) We know, we know, we’re still in the midst of the ‘Ber months, and the desserts that usually come to mind this time of the year are those of the cozy, warming sort—though really, does the appeal of fresh, juicy fruits ever go away? We think not. One of the best ways to showcase them is through the dessert known as a pavlova! Combining meringue, cream, and fruit, it’s especially popular in New Zealand and Australia—and its sweet and lush, crisp-meets-creamy profile makes for a great pair to just about any fruit. That includes everything from tangy strawberries to our naturally sweet and lush mangoes, and if this idea gets your mouth watering, guess what. You can get exactly that at Wildflour as they’ve introduced a new dessert: The Strawberry Mango Pavlova!

You’ll fall in love with the new pavlova at Wildflour:

The Strawberry Mango Pavlova (P950/mini, P1,960/whole) is a vibrant dessert with a meringue base that’s light and airy, making for a crisp and delicate bite that melts in the mouth. It’s then topped with whipped cream and fresh fruit, namely strawberries, mangoes and blueberries—each of which contribute their own telltale taste and bursts of juiciness, not to mention a pop of color against the pale-white cream and meringue! Yup, consider it a fête of varying flavors and textures as all parts come together.

Wildflour’s got other new additions to their dessert line, too. The Birthday Cake (P1,450) is a colorful treat of vanilla sponge layers, custard, a dulce de leche filling, and pastel-hued rosettes of Italian meringue frosting swirled all around the cake—definitely worth adding to your weekend spread, whether or not it’s your birthday! The Pistachio Tres Leches (P1,895), on the other hand, upgrades Wildflour’s bestselling tres leches with a shower of crunchy green pistachios on top. And for a tropical bite, try the Mango Passion Fruit Pie (P2,450)—it’ll take you straight to the islands by taste with its mango-passionfruit filling, whipped cream, and nutty almond crust.

Wildflour, Poison, and More: Where To Get The Yummiest Doughnuts In Metro Manila

By Ryanne Co

Craving for something sweet? Satisfy yourself with some of these delicious doughnuts, which are also some of the best in Manila!

Homer Simpson’s favourite snack is back with a vengeance. Manila’s top bakers aren’t letting community quarantine stop them from doing what they do best: fulfil everyone’s sugary cravings. Check out these delicious doughnut places in the city just in time for Doughnut Day on the 5th! 

Poison Coffee & Doughnuts

What’s better than ramen? Ramen and doughnuts — which is exactly what Poison Coffee & Doughnuts specialises in. Their flavours are simultaneously fun and intriguing. How do you feel about merienda with pili glazed doughnuts, coffee with the champorado doughnut, and dessert with salted dark caramel? They’re easily accessible on foodpanda and GrabFood and are open from Mondays through Sundays.

Buns & Bros

Although Buns & Bros are famous for their burgers, it would be a sin to overlook their doughnuts. Celebrate your birthday in quarantine with their whimsical doughnut birthday cake — a double layer of doughnuts, both munch-sized and regular. Topped with delicious frosting, sprinkles, and crumble, it’s the perfect way to treat yourself on a special occasion while at home.

Green Bar

If you’re looking for guilt-free indulgence, check out Green Bar’s vegan doughnuts. Their decadent flavours are an absolute treat, especially when you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary. Indulge in lemon matcha, peanut butter & jelly, decadent chocolate, and more!

Cello’s

Students in Katipunan likely have wonderful memories of Cello’s. They are, after all, a Quezon City staple — born in 2004 from a couple’s love of food. Nowadays, the brand’s letter doughnuts have become famous as a cute way to let someone know how you feel; their indulgent classic doughnuts are a great afternoon snack too. Choose from a variety of flavours that range from Boston Creme to Pastillas and Peanut Butter.

The Sugar Free Bakery

You might be able to tell what The Sugar Free Bakery is best known for; so if you’re looking for something a little less sinful then head on over to their page to their website to order something sweet. Although their flavours are currently a little limited, its soft texture and delicious flavour are a promising combination to future releases.

Wildflour

Wildflour is a staple for us here at Tatler, so we’re grateful for the fact that we can order their treats online! Wildflour To Go allows us to satisfy our cronut cravings any time of the day between 8:00AM to 4:00PM.

Bungalow Cafe

Bungalow Cafe’s doughnuts are famous for their awesome flavours. Their most recent releases include lemon cream, ube halaya, and double chocolate. Of course, they’ve got more than up their sleeve.
