The Baileys Nairobi Dessert Week is in full swing and it’s the perfect time to try out the desserts you’ve been keeping off. Panari Hotel’s Black Gold Café is participating and they’re offering a buy one get one free deal for every dessert you order. The Black Gold Café is located on the ground floor of the hotel and with its cosy, relaxed ambience it is perfect for these rainy days. Here are some of the desserts that you can find on their menu.
Chocolate brownies with vanilla ice cream
We loved this dessert that is rich in dark chocolate. The brownie also had walnuts which made it all the more delicious. If you consider everything, you get to have the health benefits of dark chocolate and walnuts in one go. The vanilla ice cream sweetens the rather low sugar levels in the dark chocolate without overpowering it.
Butterfly-shaped chocolate mousse
We had not just one but two chocolate mousses. The chocolate mousse came in a duo of white and dark chocolate and the chef made them represent two butterfly lovers. This perfect presentation translated in the taste which was amazing as well. If you’re going for something less sugary, this is it for you. It was a bit gooey which can work for you after you’ve taken a light meal.
Carrot cake with brandy snaps
Raisins, raisins, raisins! These are the ingredients used to enrichen the taste of the carrot cake. It was garnished with brandy snaps which looked like little brown stars on the cake. I know what you’re thinking but no, the brandy snaps were not prepared with actual brandy. It was a little too early in the day for us. This is definitely our top pick because. This cake was accompanied by a butterscotch sauce.
We hope you’re enjoying your desserts as much as we are this week.
