Konditor & Cook Bakery in Borough Market

Going back to when my friend Louise was back in town from Dubai for a holiday, we had a proper 'you sound like you're from Landan' day of going to our favourite hot spots. We also had a day out of Breakfast at Tiffany's where I took Louise somewhere she'd never been to, the completely vegetarian and affordable neighbourhood Bonnington Café (posted here), and she took me somewhere I'd never been to, Konditor & Cook in Borough Market. Coincidentally Louise if you're reading this, a holiday in England is not long enough, think more permanently.

Borough Market is one of my favourite haunts. There's always something new to see and eat, and I love the passion that the suppliers have and readily doll out when asked about their produce. Owing to this you might be able to forgive that, bar from the odd pub or two, I had never eaten anything from any of the restaurants and shops that border the market. Now I'm not a huge brownie fan but when Louise said Konditor & Cook had a brownie bar (aka a selection of brownies) I was very excited. And that combined with the beautiful cake in the window with its smeared rainbow iced tiers reflecting the colours of the hanging umbrellas in the neighbouring street pulled me in.

There are so many different types of dessert on offer at Konditor & Cook, and I have to go back and sample more soon, brownie lover or not that curly wurly brownie is mine! Their cakes bring back really nostalgic memories for me of the Polish bakery back home that my mum goes to for almost every occasion. And the origins of Konditor & Cook are not so far from my home bakery, the creator of Konditor & Cook originates from Southern Germany and makes handmade desserts with added glamour.

The day we went to Konditor & Cook was not a chocolate day for me, so I went for their Carrot Passion Cake. Which as it sounds is a gloriously nutty hazelnut and carrot cake coated in an ever layer of passion fruit mascarpone icing. This cake had the most incredible flavour and it's so light! Passion fruit must be the most extravagant fruit available, it's definitely one of my favourites. I did not regret opting for this cake over a brownie, although I did regret not getting two slices.

Pictured above is the ultimate Curly Wurly Brownie, Louise's choice. Cheesecake brownies have been around for a while but this one is a real winner. It might not beat my favourite red velvet cheesecake brownie from Sweet Things around Primrose Hill but it comes a close rich and sour second. If anyone has any knowledge of other cheesecake brownie hotspots in London, please let me know!

Head to Konditor & Cook early on a market day to get first pick of the goods and not be disappointed. Alternatively go on the days where Borough Market isn't on and try some of the goods the surrounding shops and restaurants have on offer.
