A cool bakery in Midtown? Ma Peche’s Milk Bar – malt truffle cake balls and corn cookie

The Corn cookie from Momofuku Milk Bar at Ma Peche

I finally had dinner at Momofuku’s Ma Peche in midtown last Friday.  The dinner and savory was (mostly) excellent but all I could think about during the meal is what I was going to order at the Milk Bar.  There are so many options at the Milk Bar and so many ways to mix and match it’s worth spending a good part of your dinner discussing the options.

I decided to go with one new item and one old standby.  I also got a sample of some absolutely awesome “cereal milk” flavored soft serve ice cream (yes, it really tasted like cereal milk!).

The chocolate malt cake truffles are somewhere between an off-the-hook brownie made with really good chocolate; a mousse; and a solid chocolate ganache.  The truffles were just so fresh and moist.  But unlike say a brownie, it didn’t seem like the moistness was just coming from a half a stick of butter.  They have other flavors as well : banana cake, chocolate chip cake and birthday cake.

The Corn cookie has been around for a while and Mrs. DessertBuzz describes them as the best part (the top) of a really great corn muffin.  I agree with that description but I’ll add that it’s also sweeter than a typical corn muffin without being to sweet (the sugar crystals don’t make your teeth hurt.  Get one you won’t be sorry.

The $3.oo for the Cake truffles is a bit steep but think of them more as special dessert than a bakery item.  The Cookies at $1.85 are still some mighty good eating for that price.
