good cakes in south kensington. I’ve blogged about muriel’s before, and rather enjoyed the experience.
happy jubilee, everyone!
there’s something brilliantly british about this weekend, and I had the chance to go out for a spot of cake and some tea, a very british activity. though the weather itself is rather british as well – that is, grey and wet – and so it might put a slight of a dampener on the weekend. but what are the british if not resilient and weather-tolerant?
in any case, I came here for a quick spot of cake and dessert, and muriel’s served us very well with our slice of carrot cake as well as a slice of very good dark chocolate bread and butter pudding, with its custard served alongside. I didn’t eat any of the cream cheese frosting, but that’s a personal dislike for any sort of frosting that I haven’t made myself. the bread and butter pudding is one of those comfortingly stout desserts that remains light and rather delightful, and something I love very much.
come here! prices are a tad high but not exorbitant or even unusual for a cafe, and it certainly feels homemade and britishy. have a good weekend everyone! (and yes I know that there are two photos of each slice of cake, but really I can’t resist the beauty a photo of cake holds, and I hope you can’t either)
