What’s a Banelé?

It is a creative bakery treat that combines elements of banana bread, a brownie, and a canelé, and you can find it right here in Singapore.

This hybrid creation boasts a chocolatey center nestled within a caramelised crust that complements the moist, dense banana bread-like texture.

Ah, so cute. I liked the bright yellow, whimsical, cosy charm to the bakery-cafe.

The ambiance of Banelé is inspired by children’s storybooks, specifically the Ladybug Girl series.

Therefore, you would cheerful yellow accents and storybook elements that create a welcoming space for customers.

Look around, and you may find cute ladybugs toys here and there.

Now to the star, the Banelé.

The quaint shop also offers a variety of Banelé flavours, from classic dark chocolate, almond, peanut butter and raspberry.

The Classic Banelé ($6.50) features Valrhona Guanaja 70% dark chocolate, looking like a square blackout brownie.

The caramelised crust did remind me a lot of canelé until you reach the soft, moist center which was like banana bread.

The complex yet comforting flavours left me feeling content and pleasantly surprised, good to go with coffee.

Furthermore, Banelé doesn’t just stop at its signature items. It offers petite Bundts which are small, fluted cakes with piped fillings, starting at $3.

I ordered all 4 to try, with the Pistachio Hazelnut flavour the newest to be introduced.

I liked the Yuzu Lavender ($3.20) most, as the citrusy fillings balanced the richer outer layer.

Some may also like the Peanut Butter & Raspberry ($3.20) which featured house-made, slightly gritty peanut butter with tangy raspberry jam with a bold flavour contrast.
