First Sunday of the blessed month of Ramadaan and I’m finding myself reminiscing to one of my many Sunday fun days. This one in particular is about a day at Vredenheim Big Cats Park followed by dessert at Spier Hotel. I knew it was going to be one of the last Sunday tea time outings before we fast for a month so I had to indulge a bit.
Arriving at Spier Hotel, I walked straight through to their lounge area outside. There weren’t many options on the dessert menu but the banana and chocolate bread and butter pudding stood out to me which is strange as I usually do not like banana in food or desserts besides pancakes. The chocolate and bread pudding part is what drove me to give it a chance.
The Banana and Chocolate Bread and Butter Pudding was served in a small round dish with hazelnut ice cream. The presentation was simple: topped with a purple flower and some leaves in the plate where the round dish with the pudding was in. Taking my first spoonful into the pudding I was impressed with the texture and even amount of banana and chocolate. I was pleasantly surprised and my taste buds were having a celebration. The hazelnut ice cream was also the perfect pairing combination. Truth be told the actual pudding was so good that it can eaten without the ice cream. My boyfriend was very sceptical trying the pudding as he claims I eat “anything and everything”. To his own surprise he loved the taste of the pudding. We loved it so much that after the pudding was finished we ordered another one.
This pudding was truly a gastronomic experience!
Well done Spier Hotel, we will certainly be back for more. Hopefully this time we can get a bigger serving!
