If you haven’t tasted Flour & Chocolate’s incredible array of baked goods, then you really don’t know what you’re missing. And Christmas is the perfect time to sample their delectable treats. But, if we’re honest, any excuse will do…
So to get you started, here are some of our current faves (gonuts – you’ll forever have a place in our hearts) that we reckon will add an indulgent touch to your Christmas spread this year.
Imagine waking up Christmas morning to a tray of chocolate croissants warming in the oven! We reckon there are probably only two days of the year where this passes as a wholesome breakfast – Easter and Christmas Day!
Flour & Chocolate don’t just do a single style of chocolate croissant either. Take your pick from Almond & Chocolate with almond cream, dark chocolate and flaked almonds on top; Hazelnut and chocolate with chocolate hazelnut filling; Coconut and chocolate; and the Pain au Chocolat, with chunks of couverture chocolate. That's like, one for every hour until lunch!
These guys pride themselves on preparing an authentic baguette the way it should be – freshly baked, crunchy, and preservative-free. Slice some up and serve with Christmas Day lunch, or better yet, fill it with the leftovers for a light dinner. If baguettes aren’t your style, Flour & Chocolate also bake ciabattas, viennas and a proper sourdough.
Roulades are a great way to end the day this Christmas, and a suitable alternative to trifle - or you could even use in your trifle. Each one is made with fresh sponge, whipped Chantilly cream and a selection of fillings. Choose from the flourless chocolate and raspberry roulade; passionfruit and vanilla; lemon curd and vanilla; raspberry and coconut; or traditional raspberry jam.
If you’d like to lock in your faves for your Christmas spread, the bakery is taking orders up until December 17. However, they’ll still be baking all their tasty goods up to Wednesday December 24 – and will also be opening on Tuesday December 23.
