‘Local Produce’ or ‘Artisan’ has really expanded in the past couple of years, new places opening all the time and one of the latest being on calle El Barrio. They don’t all make it but at least they are giving it a go.
It was the first time I had seen a peanutty cake in Anahi, Puerta del Mar, so just had to try it. Very creamy top layer with whole – well, half – peanuts embedded in it, very tasty and very filling as one might expect.
Quite a few musicians around at the moment, most who have become regulars since completing their auditions and paying their tax for the privilege. There are still the odd buskers appearing, but no doubt that will change when the permanent police presence on the Balcón de Europa begins if the past couple of years are anything to go by.
This delightful slice was on offer at Calahonda Bakery, calle Puerta del Mar, Nerja, and looked too nice to resist. So I didn’t. Coffee and cake €4.
Perhaps it is a case of tunnel vision, but when I think of cakes I always imagine chocolate, sponge, fruits, cheesecake or, as it was today, carrot cake. I would, and never have until today, considered such things as cabbage, broccoli, asparagus or any other ‘vegetable’ cake.
Strikingly pink, so I just had to see if the taste lived up to the visual aspect. Nice darker, thicker topping, a light, very creamy and fluffy centre, thicker jam layer and tasty base. Overall, much lighter than it maybe looks at first sight and delicious. Anahi, calle Puerta del Mar: €5 for coffee and cake.
After a couple of weeks trying to overcome some sort of debilitating flu, cold, bug, virus, plague or whatever it was, where lethargy was an aspiration and appetite was a faded memory, it was almost joyous to finally see something and actually fancy eating it, even if it was a slice of cake.
I liked the look of this cake, a meringuey-looking creamy lemony cake, so decided to grab one, and a cup of coffee, and sit on the Balcón de Europa for a change as it was quite sunny. Deeelicious it was. Calahonda Bakery in calle Puerta del Mar.
A fruity and nutty offering at Anahi, calle Puerta del Mar, Nerja.
Getting your ‘five a day’ is important and here is one way to do it.
