If there is one thing we cannot live without, it is, undoubtedly, desserts. You name it, we love it. There is just something about that sweet, indulgent treat that never fails to light up our day. This time around, instead of going for our usual choice of ice cream and waffles, we decided to spoil ourselves with something a little different — an underrated, yet equally sinful treat: brownies.
We paid a visit to one of the most highly-raved brownie shops in Singapore lately: BUNDT by The Backyard Bakers. Nestled in Havelock II, they are a hole-in-the-wall takeaway kiosk near Clarke Quay MRT dishing out sinful pieces of chocolatey happiness, also known as dangerously addictive brownies. They also serve coffee.
Albeit hard to find, the joint was still constantly packed with eager customers waiting to sample BUNDT’s bite-sized goodies.
Each brownie is lovingly prepared and made from scratch; customers can also look forward to a different menu from them each day.
First up, we tried their Crunchy Peanut Butter Brownie (S$4.80). Upon unwrapping its package, we were greeted by the tantalising aroma of peanut butter. Specked with bits of sliced peanuts, the chewy brownie also contained a fudgy middle with peanut butter oozing out.
The decadent brownie was moist and rich with a slightly crispy crust. It was also baked with just the right amount of sweetness and salt.
We also got a taste of their Nutella Hazelnut (S$5.20). One of their best-sellers, this is the one to go for if you are a chocolate lover! Take a bite, and you will be surprised by the burst of chocolate taste.
This brownie is definitely the winner for us — it had a crumbly exterior and was generously studded with chunks of melted milk chocolate. It was also extremely dense, almost reminiscent of a cake.
Those who prefer a coffee that is light on the palate should opt for their Signature Iced White (S$5). Mellow in flavour, it was clean and crisp with a hint of nuttiness.
If you are in the vicinity, treat yourself to a post-work indulgence here at BUNDT by The Backyard Bakers! Do take note that their baked treats sell out fast, so fastest fingers first.
