Despi Delite Bakery

February 26, 2018

I had never heard of Ube before I moved to Seattle and now I can’t get enough of it. Despi Delite Bakery in Beacon Hill makes good use of the purple tuber, incorporating it into several of their desserts. Most appealing to me was the Ube bread – the dough is similar to that of Portuguese sweet bread, and the filling is ube.

The bread and filling were soft and extremely fresh. If you’ve never had ube bread before, please seek it out because it’s worth searching for. I was less blown away by their version of the cronut, but was redeemed with more ube, this time in cheesecake form:

Similar in appearance, texture and quality to Hood’s Famous Bakeshop, this small cake kept nicely in the fridge for several days and gave me something to look forward to when I got home from work. Delite is a great little spot for ube addicts, and you can’t beat the prices!
