Four Ethiopian Desserts To Tryy
Ethiopian food is some of the healthiest food you can eat in the world. Not only does it cater to any type of eater, it also allows you to get your nutrients in every dish. In addition to the delicious dishes you’re able to try, Ethiopia is best known for Ethiopian Coffee. However, what about the desserts? Ethiopia and dessert aren’t two words that go together, because generally, desserts aren’t in Ethiopian culture. Usually, if there is dessert after dinner in Ethiopia, then it’s cakes and pastries that have a unique Italian flair to them due to the influence by the boot-shaped country. In Ethiopia, if there is a large, spicy meal that’s been consumed, Ethiopian beer or honey wine will be drunk after dinner. At Beniam Cuisine, we present to you some delicious, Ethiopian desserts that will satisfy you after a mouthwatering meal.
This first dessert on our menu is pretty Americanized due to the ice cream that’s involved. The White Special has a unique twist on a sort of ice cream sundae. With French vanilla ice cream combined with chocolate sauce and light pastry triangles, you’ll be salivating at how these three ingredients complement each other. With the sugariness of the ice cream and chocolate sauce, you’ll find a good balance with the pastry triangles.
This dessert is more geared toward the traditional Ethiopian style of desserts. Even though desserts aren’t consumed as much as they are in America, there are cafes that offer sweet treats. The Beniam;s Sweety are light pastry shells filled with a myriad of items and spices. Stuffed with raisins both light and dark, split almonds, shredded coconut, and cardamom, this tasty Ethiopian dessert is both sweet and healthy.
Do you love chocolate? If so, you’ll be tempted with this chocolate dessert. Oozing with rich chocolate, this chocolate cake is served warm with the added opportunity for French vanilla ice cream. A light triangle pastry drizzled with chocolate sauce will complete this unique type of chocolate cake. If you’re a fan of chocolate, you won’t be able to go wrong with oozing warm chocolate cake.
Can’t decide on just one of our desserts? That’s okay! With the opportunity to share with two to four extra people – or keep all for yourself – you’ll be able to enjoy all three of our desserts.
