There’s just something so irresistible about pockets of dough pumped with cream. Bombolonis as they are called, are so beautiful to watch as you tear open the doughnut and the thick liquid comes pouring out. It makes for some great food porn. Kobashi is here to stun you with their latest line of artisanal sourdough bakes that are sure to leave you craving for more.
This home-based bakery operating online regularly updates its menu, so there’s always something fresh to look forward to. This time it comes in the form of 6 new flavours (S$19 for a box of 4, S$29 for a box of 6, S$54 for a box of 12) that are each newly made at the break of dawn.
The Vanilla Cheese Creme Brulee sounds like it could be my new favourite. The cream is made of vanilla cream and cream cheese, with the doughnut having a sugar crust. Pistachio fans can look forward to the Pistachio Dulce Cream which has caramelised milk jam, pastry cream and pistachio butter. There’s a unique one with the name of White Chrysanthemum Thyme which is filled with cacao nibs, white chrysanthemum, and fresh thyme.
The list isn’t done yet. I predict the Taro Coconut Cream to emerge as the most popular, with its taro puree, coconut filling, and desiccated coconut sprinkled on top. I’m already dreaming about this one. The Brown Butter Maple Cream is like breakfast in a doughnut: it has a maple filling, brown butter, and a small pancake sitting on top. Finally, there’s yet another interesting flavour in the form of Cereal Milk Glaze with a sugar glaze and, guess what else? Crushed Fruity Pebbles!
Their sourdough baked goods also include the arrival of a new item called the Black Summer Truffle Duo Cheese Sourdough Focaccia (S$52). Pretty wordy, huh? It comes under the category of Seasonal Premiums. This sourdough focaccia is filled with black summer truffle sauce, provolone cheese, and mozzarella cheese. Topped with caramelised onions and dill, this helps balance the heavy cheese and strong truffle taste. Hurry before Kobashi brings in its next batch of flavours!
