Yummy in my Tummy


I haven’t had much to write about lately because I’ve been in a funk with some personal matters. However, I guess the upside to things would be that when in woe, food is always a comforting companion. So with that in mind, I’ve been putting some junk in the trunk and I thought I would share my latest food obsession. Cheskie’s bakery on the corner of Bernard and Parc was voted second best bakery in the annual Montreal Mirror Best of Montreal poll. I have to admit that I’ve only been to this Jewish bakery a handful of times. But I think I’m going to make it my mission to eventually try every baked good they make because frankly, everything looks so sinfully good when you walk in there. It’s a treat to walk up Parc on a Sunday afternoon and stop at Cheskie’s for a little sweet somethin’. Don’t however, attempt to do this on a Saturday because you’ll find it closed for Shabbat. So today, I got this. (I am clueless when it comes to photography and lighting so the coloring in the picture doesn’t really do it justice. Just imagine it to be more yellow and the topping less grey.) The girl behind the counter said it was cheesecake but I have to say, I don’t think it was cheesecake. It was good but not cheesecake. I can report that it was definitely moist and cakey and very rich. The sprinkling of icing sugar was divine and the milky topping with a hint of chocolate was a nice touch. Mmmm. (FYI – Cost: $2.)
