Born all the way from France, Boulangerie 22 finally opened in the Philippines. Recently, I got to taste this new French bakery, boasting on their carefully crafted breads and cakes.
Boulangerie 22 merges classical and modern methods of baking to produce delicious, mouth-watering bread offerings and cakes from scratch. They actually have a wide array of selection that attracts not just the sweet tooth but bread lovers too!
Look at those cute character cakes! Lovely Teddy is a chocolate cake made with chocolate chiffon in chocolate buttercream covered in chocolate ganache. Yes, everything chocolate!!! Yum! On the otherhand, Mr. Piggy is a classic cake made with vanilla chiffon and fresh strawberry buttercream covered in strawberry chocolate ganache.
Boulangerie 22 also prides itself with its must-try sourdough, which has tangy flavor and roasted aroma. Over 6 generations have kept the signature sourdough recipe that is now available to Filipinos in Sourdough Baguette, Sourdough Raisin Walnut Rye Bread, Pain de Campagne, and Sourdough Pizza.
Here are nice to know facts: Do you know that lactic acids in the sourdough make vitamins and minerals in the flour more available to the body, making it easier to digest? Sourdough also benefits those who need to maintain low sugar. It’s also a great source of fuel for good bacteria or prebiotics for the body.
As soon as I entered Boulangerie 22, I immediately checked out all the trays laid out on their shelves. I had a hard time choosing from their selections! They all looked fresh and delish. My friends and I decided to share so we could at least have a bite and taste everything we got.
My favorites? Chocolate Macadamia Cookie, Chocolate Financier, Croissants, Chocolate Dulce de Leche, and Cheddar Chicken Floss Bread. Happy tummy indeed and I must say, all the carbo loading was worth it! 😀
