It happened again. Last night. I was craving something sweet, preferably with chocolate and the endless options of delivery services in Dubai just got me. Even though SugarMoo, the Bakery, is only a few blocks away from my home in Al Barsha, I decided to try their vegan sweets via the delivery service Deliveroo.
Unless you pre-order your customized cake / brownie / cupcake / cookie – there are two vegan options on the daily menu: the raw energy bites and the crazy cake! Undoubtedly I had to try both.
From the time I ordered until these sweets got delivered it took less than half an hour and when it arrived I already fell in love with their packaging! Their slogan “You crave We deliver” is exactly the kind of thing I am looking for. When I opened the paper bag I found two small and lovely wrapped up brown and pink boxes inside. One of them with a small piece of the vegan crazy cake and the other one contained four different kinds of raw energy bites.
After taking a few quick pictures (it really had to be quick since I couldn’t wait a single second to try these vegan desserts) I took my first bite of the crazy cake, which is also called “Allergy-Free Cake” since it’s free of eggs, dairy and butter, and fell in love immediately! The cake was chocolate-coated, not too sweet but not too “healthy” either and had a just perfect moisture.
In fact it was more comparable to a really good brownie due to its size and richness in flavor. Upon request and notice SugarMoo provides the Crazy Cake as an entire cake and I know now already that this is the place to go for me if I need to feed more people than just me with vegan cake. Being so excited and satisfied with the cake I only tried bits of the Raw Energy Bites afterwards. All of them were created out of dates as their main ingredient and only the add-ons differed: they were topped with cocoa, pistachio, coconut flakes and almonds. As for my first impression I had expected them to be a little bit softer (I actually struggled getting the balls into pieces with a fork), liked the sweet taste of the dates but after all they kind of tasted the same just with different toppings.
The truth: they were more like something even I could have easily prepared myself with a few dates and my preferred add-on.
Even though I’ve had better raw energy bites before, I absolutely loved the small boxes they came in and I’m sure I’ll get a vegan cake from SugarMoo again! Order Online, via phone, Deliveroo or stop by at their shop in Al Barsha (next to Mall of the Emirates).
