If you're one of the millions of us who tune in to see what's been going in the Bake Off tent each week, then chances are that you've got somewhat of a sweet tooth yourself. And if you're as harsh a judge as Prue and Paul you'll also have a very clear idea of what kind of dessert is a delight and makes the perfect way to round off a meal.
But the thing about the very best puds is that they can be quite complicated and time-consuming to make, even if you aren't actually working against the clock, so it's lucky that there are so many great takeaways serving up some of London's most delectable sweet treats – and here are just four of them.
1. Cookies and Cream Cake from Miriam's Munchies
Lucky residents of Harrow can have the pleasure of enjoying a fantastic array of goodies from Miriam's Munchies. These range from cupcake and brownie selections to the crowning glory of their famous Cookies and Cream Cake. The complete cake serves 12 and consists of two layers of rich chocolate sponge sandwiched together with vanilla buttercream studded with chocolate cookie crumbs. The finishing touch is provided by a decoration of mini Oreo cookies to add more than a little crunch.
2. Peanut Butter Choc Chip Cookie Dough from Homeburger
There is a corner of the Holloway Road that is forever the USA, and you'll find it at Homeburger. So when you've enjoyed your authentic burger and fries, and maybe with a side of Homeslaw too, it's time to move on to a dessert that's even more American than apple pie. Their Peanut Butter Choc Chip Cookie Dough is a sensational combination of sweet and savoury and chewy and crunchy. The result is a dessert that really delivers in every single way.
3. Cronut® from Dominique Ansel Bakery
Happy October, #London! First day of this month's Banana Toasted Oat Cronut®, looking beautiful as ever and filled with banana jam and creamy toasted oat ganache. Pre-orders are up online (http://dominiqueansellondon.com/shop/cronut-preorder/ ) for pick-ups, and remember that a select few are also available for delivery each day via @deliveroo too. #Cronut #DABLondon #banana #London
Belgravia is one of London's most exclusive areas so it's only fitting that it's also home of one of the city's most exclusive desserts. The Cronut® was invented in New York by Ansel who was also named World's Best Pastry Chef in 2017. It's a sumptuous combination of croissant and doughnut and was even voted Invention of the Year by Time magazine in 2013. The bakery only has 50 available for delivery each day so you'll have to get your order in early if you want to be sure of enjoying their flavour of the month.
4. Flourless Chocolate Fondant Cake from Ottolenghi
If there's one chef who has done more than anyone else to introduce us to a whole new range of flavour combinations and the best of Middle Eastern food, it's Yotam Ottolenghi. But with his Flourless Chocolate Fondant Cake, he gives us a true taste of the traditional that's even great for the gluten-intolerant to enjoy. The whole cake is available to order from the menu of his Notting Hill restaurant and serves at least 10.
So why not get ready to put these awesome puds to the ultimate taste test yourself – especially as Deliveroo will bring them straight to you?
