YumYumYum On Sunday

My fiance is a vanilla man, all the way. Vanilla cakes, vanilla cupcakes, vanilla cookies – his choice over chocolate, any day. He even prefers white chocolate – ya, know – Milky Bar? Except when it comes to brownies – for brownies he will make an exception to the vanilla rule.

So after seeing @megpascoe tweeting about chocolate brownie cupcakes with honeycomb and chocolate icing, I knew that this was something I had to get him to try, so this morning we headed out to Market on Main and made a beeline for The Counter’s stall.

A delicious spread of homemade goodies on offer from the aspiring deli-owner and her partner-in-crime – gourmet sammiches, sinful chocolate chip cookies, an assortment of indulgent marshmallows, preserves and and and….of course….chocolate brownie cupcakes with chocolate icing and honeycomb. And huge, gorgeous, chunky chocolate brownies.

I wolfed down my cupcake with a cappuccino – the perfect Sunday breakfast, if you ask me. And it was insanely delicious – the honeycomb? Reminded me of a Crunchie bar. You know, the one that goes ‘KKKRRRRR’ in your mouth? That. And my fiance made sex noises while he was eating his, so I assume that he enjoyed it as well. 😉

Though we had to rush off to fetch The Kid from his grandparents, we made plans to come back to Market on Main another day, to have a look and taste wares from some of the other stalls – we barely even looked around – we went there knowing exactly what we wanted!

Looking forward to see what else comes out of The Counter’s kitchen in the future – and can’t wait for that deli dream to become a reality!

    Thanks so much for the write-up! Glad you guys enjoyed everything. Come and visit again sometime soon.

    P.S – Tell the Fiance that we’ll do white chocolate ‘blondies’ one day soon, he’ll love them!

    I can’t wait for the birth of the “big cahoonas” deli… the walk in and see that huge counter with all the mouth watering delish goodies on display and then taking hours to decide ( cos I’m an indecisive Libran) what I’m going to eat.. Oh, yes please!!
    I hope that when it comes – Plum the cat will be part of the crew.
    With the wonderful combination of Megs and Ian and the magic they cook and spin into their food, The Counter is destined to be an amazing success.. True Story!
