Try out Warrington's very own mash up dessert
3:20pm Thursday 17th October 2013 in News
FIRST there was the cronut, a mash-up dessert created in New York which combines the flaky pastry of a croissant with the shape and sweet filling of a doughnut.
Then the world welcomed the townie, London’s hybrid dessert offering, which crossed the pastry of a tart with the delicious goodness of a brownie.
But now make way for Warrington’s own take on the hybrid dessert, the cheoffee éclair.
Sweet tooth lovers have gone crazy for these delectable treats, which fuses two calorie-loaded mouth-watering desserts into one, proving that the pastry possibilities are endless.
This inventive dessert mixes together the choux pastry of an éclair with banoffee cheesecake to create a dessert that you will leave you with an insatiable craving for more.
Alison Roberts, the owner of cake shop Alison Love to Bake in Warrington Market, created the sweet treat in honour of the Warrington Guardian’s 160th birthday.
The mum of three said: “When I was approached to bake something special for the Warrington Guardian’s birthday I immediately started thinking of something a bit different.
“I started thinking of popular flavours but decided not to go down the cupcake line as it has been overdone.”
But after countless hours of experimenting, the cheoffee éclair was born after a labour of love and will be on sale at the cake shop in the next few weeks for £1.35 per slice.
The decadent dessert, which takes an hour to make overall, is a delicious indulgence that will be on sale for a limited time only.
Alison, who started her baking company five years ago, said: “We are launching a number of desserts and this will be one of them. If it’s popular then we will keep selling them.”
The keen baker, who says she never gets sick of the sight of cakes, is happy that the dessert is finished and ready for people to sample.
“I have eaten a lot, while I was trying to get the recipe right. There were a lot of happy faces at home as they had the hard job of taste testing the different ones.”
