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.
Today’s cake stop was at Ortiz at the junction of calle Diputación and avendia Castilla Perez in Nerja, and a delight it certainly was.
Silky smooth and creamy white chocolate with raspberries, another delicious offering at Salvador bakery on calle San Miguel, Nerja. At €2.75 for coffee and cake, still the best value around.
As I approached the doorway of Anahi on Sunday I spied a nice looking sponge cake, but as I entered I was suddenly drawn to this rather colourful offering. Multi-layers of different colours and flavours with a large dollop of creamI just had to try it. I had intended to test out the new Mad Hatter’s Tea Room on calle Jaén but it is closed on Sundays. Another day.
