Hummingbird Cake @ The Daily Grind, Bangsar Village


the star at the moment

It's good to be back home...catching up with friends and indulging in good food, as you can see from this upcoming week's posts. While Italy was pretty exciting, food in general wasn't too fantastic probably because we got fed a little too much risotto for everyone's liking. Nevertheless I got to taste fantastic cheeses, fresh pasta, pizza, cured meats, weird stuff like horse meat and of course, loads of great wine and grappa. I'm still sorting out the pictures and wondering how to blog about my experience there. There's so many pictures I need to spend loads more time to sort all of them.

indulging...

The weekend has been great getting all the errands done and meeting up friends to catch up. Since yesterday was Easter Sunday, we took it leisurely and ended up at Bangsar Village. They had the cutest rabbits for petting which the kids were manhandling, freshly baked hot cross buns and cupcake decorating by D'lish in the foyer and decorating eggs upstairs.

going going gone...

Best of all, we stopped by the Daily Grind for a spot of tea to indulge in their latest cake - the hummingbird cake (RM12 per slice). It may look like a carrot cake but it is made from bananas and pineapples. Really delish stuff - light layers of cake sandwiched with decadent cream cheese frosting and topped with dried pineapple flowers. They also have an equally moist and delicious lemon drizzle cake redolent with tangy lemon flavour.


mr. bunny says hi everyone...

Apologies for the very short post but I am slowly getting back into the hang of blogging. It was quite difficult to blog in Italy as Internet was so expensive in the hotels. By the time, I had free internet, I was too busy to write blog posts. Will also be doing a few backdated posts from previously that I had uploaded earlier on.

Happy Easter to you! Just read about Joe's post on Daily Grind and now a dessert from Daily Grind. Seems like a really nice place for food, Hummingbird cake itself is an interesting name for cake. Hope I get the chance to try it one day.

Huummm... Isn't it a bit expensive for that slice of cake size? By the way, I was wondering why gave such a name to a cake as well. Did you hum after eating? LOL! :P

Hi, very fine looking piece of cake. It's pricey but from the way the cake looks, I'm speculating it is all worth it.

LOL I really thought it was a carrot cheese cake from the initial glance. :)

hi sugar bean - long time no see you around. Didn't know Joe also blogged abt Daily Grind recently. We tried the new cakes just last week hence I thought I'll blog abt it.

E - LOL, yes I saw them and went awww! In fact I took so many pixs of the kids playing with the bunnies until I got called back for lunch.

j2kfm - pressure pressure! I finally got my act together after working the whole nite to sort out pixs on Italy.

qwazymonkey - LOL, yes eating nasi lemak and everything local I can get my hands on.

thxs rickdog.

Thumbs up to the cake - you must go check it out since it is in yr area, Bangsar-babe.

Jules - risotto in every meal does not make me a happy gal though!

thxs worldwindows, slowly getting back into the blogging mode. Very slowly ok?

ai wei - yeah, lethal combo, burgers and cake!

kampungboycitygal - pressure pressure! Have blogged as everyone seems to want to hear abt Italy.

leo - despite the ups and downs of food, the wine and company made up for it.

ciki - yes, very good. I brought Splashie Boy to try it on Sunday and he was blown away.

criz - usual price for cakes like this though, of course cheaper if you make it yrself. LOL on the humming part. I actually have no idea why they call it a hummingbird cake.

Leonard - yeah, it looks very like one but it is not as dense as a carrot cake.

jesscet said...

so this is the cake that splashie boy was raving about (on FB)! it does look and sound very yummy and not so rich/fattening like other cakes.. mmmmm..

boo_licious said...

jesscet - yeah, he was blown away hence as usual he was FBing away. He has officially taken possession of my 3G phone, hence the constant FBing...
