Tiramisu Pancakes From Bask Blends Cafe
Look, nothing beats a hybrid dessert, which is why Bask Blends Cafe’s tiramisu pancakes are right at the top of this list. This dessert is the definition of "thic" with coffee mascarpone sandwiched between two fluffy pancakes and topped with more mascarpone and grated chocolate. You’ll also get caffeinated syrup to pour on top. Bask Blends Cafe is open for takeaway, or you can order up home-delivery if you live locally.
Banoffee Pies From Just Banoffy
Much like the name suggests, at the crux of this tasty business model lies a whole lot of banoffee pie—and you’ll want in on a few boxes of the good stuff. There are two available size options here, the first, an eight-inch pie that yields about eight to 10 serves for $50. The second, a 10-inch pie with 12 - 14 servings sitting at $80.
The halos of goodness here are made with dark chocolate, freshly whipped cream, sliced bananas, homemade toffee, and a crunchy biscuit base. If that should tell you anything, it’s that these bad boys are moreish, to say the least. For anyone with a food intolerance, this guy contains dairy, gluten, soy, and traces of nuts. Just Banoffy is located in Guilford West—pick-up is available, as is contactless delivery, you can scope the available suburbs on the Just Banoffy Instagram account. Head here for more details.

Sweet Snack Packs From Clifford Luu
