Everybody loves a brownie. I have literally never met someone who didn’t love a brownie unless they were allergic. The way we like our brownies differ, though.
Some like them sweet or dark; with nuts or without. There are light ones, dense ones, and biscuity ones.
We all have our own definition of a perfect brownie. I, for one, love the rich, chocolate-y, melt-in-your-mouth kind, preferably with no nuts. Unless it’s soft walnut mixed in the brownie, or maybe almond slivers on top, just to add a little crunch, in case there aren’t any chocolate chips on it. It’s one or the other. I don’t want no nuts distracting me from my chocolate.
Because of our different preferences, it’s easy to find a brownie that everyone will like, but it’s a little harder to find a one that everyone will love and enjoy and smile like an idiot about.
I found one such brownie in Davao when I went there in May.
Annipie is actually known for their cinnamon rolls. Their logo includes the swirl that looks like a cinnamon roll, and includes the tagline, “Your Cinnamon Destination”. I did try their cinnamon, and they were lovely, but my favorite thing in Annipie was their Triple Dark Chocolate Brownies with Ganache.
Just the name makes me crave for one right now. Let’s make it worse with this photo.
I still think that my mother’s recipe is still the best ever, of course, but aside from that? This one just shot up my list of the best brownies I’ve ever had. The moist brownie is already delicious on its own, but they decided to slather it with ganache fudge and top it with cacao nibs that add a really good crunch to the otherwise soft base. And it’s made from Malagos chocolate, the premium chocolate proudly made locally in Davao. And Malagos chocolate can do no wrong.
It was so good that I took home a couple boxes despite the fact that I’d already finished buying my souvenirs for the trip. I would’ve brought more home if I still had free hands.
Annipie also serves savory snacks and full meals, which I’ll write about in a bit. If you’re planning a trip to Davao City, I thoroughly recommend that you go out of your way to get a Triple Dark Chocolate Brownie by Annipie. You will not regret it.
