10 Aug 4 Delicious Desserts for Breakfast in Melbourne that will blow your mind
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day but why not forget what your Mum told you and eat dessert first. Give those taste buds a surprise first thing in the morning and wake them up with these mouth-watering sweet sensations.
1. Brulee Bircher
Just when you think Bircher can’t get any better and then you eat this! Almost too pretty to eat, it’s made with strawberries, cranberries, super seeds mix, brulee yoghurt & watermelon jerky. Crack your spoon on the brulee top and you’d think that you’ve just taken a time machine straight to dessert. The beauty of this dish is that it’s not sickly sweet so even those without a sweet tooth can handle this one for breakfast. Other than the thin caramelised Brulee crunch the other highlight of this dish is the perfectly chewy watermelon jerky that garnishes the top.
Find it at Temperance Society, 127 Kangaroo Road, Hughesdale
2. Nutella Panna Cotta
The name of this dish alone will have you weak at the knees and then you find out that it’s served with nut butter banana sushi, honey joy crumb, strawberries, pomegranate molasses and torched marshmallows and you’ll wonder where it’s been all your life! Words alone cannot express how exquisite this dish is and no picture can possibly capture that perfect Panna Cotta wobble. The smooth texture of the Nutella panna cotta is really pleasing and the other components of the dish give an array of textures to complement it. The nut butter banana sushi is a real highlight and adds that extra ‘wow’ factor to an already impressive dish.
Find it at Penta Elsternwick, 28 Riddell Parade, Elsternwick
3. Strawberry Lamington Hotcake
This is a hotcake with a difference! A Lamington is a traditional Australian cake made with sponge cake, coated in chocolate or strawberry sauce, rolled in desiccated coconut and sometimes filled with cream and jam. Now combine this with a hotcake and you get this fabulous moreish creation topped with white chocolate crumble, vanilla mascarpone, toasted almonds, fresh berries and strawberry coulis. Every bite is delicious and gets even better when you reach the strawberry jam surprise in the middle.
Find it at Prospect Espresso, 2A Prospect Hill Road, Camberwell.
4. Challah French Toast
Appropriately named ‘The Boss of all Challah’ this dish consists of challah French toast squares, charred apple, seasonal fruits, berry mascarpone, Tim Tam sand and white chocolate shards. The combination of ingredients certainly makes this dish ‘Boss’ worthy let alone the artful presentation which in my opinion takes it to CEO standards. I love the unique use of Challah bread (a special Jewish yeast-risen egg bread) combined with a variety of fruits including a cherry on top you almost forget that you are eating dessert for breakfast!
Find it at Street Talk Espresso, 710 High Street, Armadale
