Best Display of Weirdo Genius (2011)


The ovens at Matthew Tilden's SCRATCHbread have birthed some of the city's most compellingly unusual pastries, perhaps none more so than the bakery's plantain cake with molé streudel. What on earth happens when bananas, plantains, yucca, burnt caramel, and sourdough crumbs get mashed together and topped with pumpkin seeds, red chili seed molé, bitter chocolate, and pecans? A spicy-sweet-savory revelation, served with a side of crazy. 1069 Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-744-8231, (11216)
