This Bakery In BGC Offers A Huge, Delicious Ube + Cheese Ensaymada!
Best paired with a cup of hot coffee!
A lot of people loveube, but two of the things we truly love about it is how versatile it is and its ability to surprise us. We've tried and made numerous¬†ube desserts, but there's never a shortage of new ube desserts to discover. One that we discovered on a random merienda session at Shangri-La at the Fort is a Bake House¬†specialty: Ube Cheese Ensaymada.
What you need to know
If you didn't know, Shangri-La at the Fort opened Bake House, an eco-friendly bakery,¬†in mid-2019. A relatively new addition to the Bake House pastry selection is the Ube Cheese Ensaymada, that's made with ube bread and its exterior is coated with a semi-thick cheesy crust, but the bottom layer has a filling of ube halaya and melted cheese. It may not be obvious with¬†the photos, but we're not even exaggerating by saying that the¬†size of it is close to¬†the average human forehead.¬†
Why we love it
What we love most about Bake House's Ube Cheese Ensaymada is the bottom layer. Sure the ube bread and the cheesy crust are delicious, but the¬†creamy ube and melted cheese layer bursts with flavors of salty, sweet, and earthy flavors all in one bite. Plus, the amount of the filling is just right-it doesn't have that umay factor.
The second reason why we love this pastry is that it doesn't turn into a hard rock despite being exposed to an air-conditioned room for two to three hours, which we have to applaud the bakers of Bake House for. We were pleasantly surprised that when we took¬†a bite of it, the ube bread¬†was still soft and fluffy.¬†
Where you can get it
You can get this Ube Cheese Ensaymada for P76 each. The Bake House is located at Shangri-La at the Fort, 30th Street corner 5th Avenue, Taguig City.¬†
The bakery has a baking schedule which means you can get it fresh by 6:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 4:00 p.m. But more often than not, they will try to restock and¬†bake as needed. A tip from us: go earlier or be there before 2:00 p.m. if you want to try it out!
