This Flavored Frozen Brazo is Available in Ube, Avocado, Strawberry, and More
A fun twist on the classic dessert!
Brazo de mercedes is a classic Filipino dessert composed of a rolled meringue cake filled with rich yellow custard and sprinkled with powdered sugar. It also has a frozen variation, which has the same sweetness and fluffy texture, but¬†with ice cream in the center, making it perfect for summertime. If you love the traditional dessert, you'll want to try IG-based bakeshop Maria Makes's fun twist on frozen brazo: It's available flavors like ube, avocado, strawberry, cookies and cream, caramel macchiato, and vanilla!
Maria Makes' frozen brazo is composed of meringue cake and custard like the OG¬†cake but with a crumbly graham crust on the bottom and a flavored ice cream in the middle. Take your pick between classic vanilla and other flavors like ube (a.k.a. Metro Manila's current obsession), avocado if you like a light flavor profile, caramel machiatto for coffee lovers, or cookies and cream¬†for some extra crunch. They're a great dessert option for your family on a regular week, but also¬†festive enough for celebrating occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, or graduations at home.
