The Thanksgiving meal is a wonderful thing and we’re grateful for it, really, we are. But with all the work involved—from cooking the bird and making the cranberry sauce, to assembling the seasonal produce and more—what’s a hostess to do about dessert? That’s simple, outsource it. We’ve found seven Toronto bakeries that are whipping up Thanksgiving pies and desserts this season and are sure to knock your family’s socks off.
Sweet Escape in Toronto’s Distillery District aims to put a fun spin on classic recipes, like their celiac-friendly chocolate cake. The first thing to know about Sweet Escape’s flourless chocolate cake is that it needs to be ordered by October 10th (that’s today!) to have it on time for Thanksgiving. Everything else you need to know, like the taste and texture, will be obvious the minute you put a bite into your mouth. Divine. Try a side of their pumpkin ice-cream or brown butter cupcakes for a sweet treat of epic proportions.
We promise the kids will love picking out their Thanksgiving dessert at the bakery, and you’ll love saving yourself some precious time in the kitchen. Plus, you can use all the time you saved not baking by hanging out with your family. Isn’t that the meaning of the season?
