Gâteau Basque

Dandelion Chocolate

Hailing from Basque country straddling the border of France and Spain, the Gâteau Basque is simply called “cake of the house” by locals. A buttery, slightly crispy and slightly soft crust encases smooth pastry cream or jam, and the beautiful contrast of crumbly and creamy layers creates a truly unique pastry experience made even more special with single-origin chocolate. Our rich six-inch gâteau highlights one of our favorite origins: 70% Camino Verde. After extensive recipe testing, we’ve perfected this tender chocolate crust and velvety chocolate filling – bean-to-bar simplicity at its most delicious.

About our Gâteau

Our version of a Gâteau Basque – a delectable dark horse of the pastry world – combines the best elements of a pie, tart, cookie, and brownie in a treat enjoyed warm or at room temperature. Executive Pastry Chef Lisa Vega created this single-origin chocolate-on-chocolate Gâteau Basque highlighting the classically fudgy notes of our Camino Verde, Ecuador chocolate.

These cakes are chocolate at its best, and as best-selling author and culinary expert, Dorie Greenspan says:

"One of my all-time favorite cakes in my all-time favorite flavor. Lisa's Gateau Basque is soooo good."
