The new pastel de manzana from Funnybones Foodservice is a spiced apple cake with a dulce du leche topping.
Based on a traditional Argentinian recipe, it consists of a sponge spiced with cinnamon and pieces of apple. The dulce du leche adds a toffee-like flavour.
“This special dessert is made exclusively for us, and is an extremely popular dessert from South America, one of our specialist regions,” says Tom Styman-Heighton, development chef at Funnybones Foodservice.
“We think it offers the familiarity of apple cake but with a twist that consumers will love. Traditional puddings are very fashionable at the moment, but they come with a cheffy touch that makes them stand out from the crowd, just like our pastel de manzana.”
The cake arrives frozen and pre-portioned into 12 slices. Once defrosted it will last up to seven days refrigerated.
