I adore the combination of red berries and white chocolate chips. The sweet, tart tang of the raspberries in comparison to the super sweet white chocolate, the soft texture of the fruit is a perfect foil for the wonderful bite of the hard little white chocolate morsels. Yes, regardless of the medium, this is a winning combination. That being said, I admit to being partial to quick breads.
Today's raspberry white chocolate chip scone at Fusion Bakery was a true work of art. It started out with a huge, and I'm talking monster-size piece of dough. Half would be more than enough for an indulgent breakfast or snack. The exterior? Perfection. It is generously covered with crystallized sugar, and baked to a crisp, so that it adopts a wonderfully exciting crunch, that melts into the soft, moist, dough.
Fusion is always generous with their fillings, and this number is no exception. Once cut open, the item transforms from baked good to modern sculpture, an abstractly shaped glob, with swirls of red climbing through a somewhat textured, off white background, and chunks of whiteness, dancing throughout the interior, sticking their little heads out, and giving you no doubt in the world of their presence. When you get a bite that includes the fruit, white chocolate, and sugar coated exterior, the results are ecstatic.
Fusion has never failed me, but today, today they have gone about and beyond. I would highly recommend that you hurry down to get one of these divine creations before they're all gone.
Bravo Fusion, on a truly remarkable quick bread.
