Created just for the holidays, our Spiced Almond Praliné Gâteau Basque features velvety chocolate pastry cream atop a layer of smooth, house-made almond-cardamom praliné, all enclosed in a rich, chocolatey crust: our holiday-season tribute to elegant Basque simplicity.
Traditionally, a gâteau Basque (known by Basque locals as “cake of the house”) is composed of pastry cream or jam encased in a buttery pastry crust. We honor the Basque confection with our own creamy, 70% Camino Verde, Ecuador chocolate filling, made festive with the addition of warming, cardamom-scented almond praliné. Tender, almost brownie-like Camino Verde, Ecuador chocolate crust makes a beautiful foil for the melt-in-your-mouth interior — a perfect seasonal dessert.
