Super Strict Score [understand my S3]: 8
Considering it is Epiphany today, what better to post than French king cake, a cake that is a traditional Epiphany specialty in France?
I love the Lindt takes on French king cake because they inevitably incorporate chocolate. This 2011 version was pure chocolate: cocoa pastry dough & Lindt dark chocolate ganache. It was served warmed up which highly benefited the ganache, bringing out the chocolate & making it extra delicious.
The feuilletage was quite solid & didn’t suffer from being heated up, the ganache was smooth, melting & full of good chocolate flavor.
A very rich, chocolatey taste throughout makes this a French king cake standout in the wattwurmnashi records as of to date. You should try this year’s current chocolate & raspberry king cake, in Tokyo stores only [BOOH!!] until Jan 25!
