Eating & Drinking: Caramel Profiteroles
These caramel profiteroles came into my life one night when I was pretty much doing the standard: lazing on the couch, dreaming about anything made out of refined sugar. N's sister-in-law sent these over to our place (just because) and I took one look at them and knew that if they didn't taste as good as they looked, I would develop serious trust issues in life.
This is what I felt when I had the first one: Eat these. Die. Enter heaven.
Really, they're that delicious.
I had recently developed a love for profiteroles anyway but I had no idea how phenomenally caramel could up their game. The pastry is ridiculously light filled with rich vanilla cream and drowning in caramel sauce. They're from Katrina Sweets and N & I have gone back and had these multiple times since then (now our waistlines have collectively screamed that enough is enough so we're on a tiny sabbatical from consuming such drops of heaven).
They're best when had the same day because the pastry is fresh like nobody's business. But I don't mind shoving them in the refrigerator where they get beautifully chilled (but will dry out a tiny bit). I LOVE them.
Here they are at their home base, ready for you.
Before I give more details on this, here's some other stuff they have if you'd like to have a look. I've tried the layered honey cake as well and it was so light, soft and pretty fantastic, perfect with coffee/tea.

Available every time I've gone but call and check before going to avoid disappointment. I pick mine up from the one in Barsha.
Until next time.
