Marks and Spencer_1

Waistline-wrecking temptations to be found at KLCC’s Marks & Spencer, where an in-house bakery opened this month, serving a sweeping, scrumptious selection.

 

Fruit Pastries

 

Everything from Bramley apple turnovers to peach-and-cream tarts; resistance truly is futile.

Oh, remember that turnover? Here it is, made with Britain’s most popular cooking apple.Marks and Spencer_6

Our indisputable favorites here: The sweet stuff, including this buttery, sugar-topped Eccles cake with a potently fruity currant filling.

Croissants

The Bakery’s croissants, beautifully flaky, are born of French-made dough, flown into Malaysia to be baked right here inside this KLCC store.Marks and Spencer_3

Almond croissant and choc chip shortbread. Caveat: We’ve purchased these pastries at various hours over the past two weeks, learning eventually that they taste terrific when bought at 11am, but the stock that’s left at night (with a 50 percent discount) has clearly faded in freshness.

Bread

Malted wheat baguette, slow-baked with bran & barley malt flour, evincing a golden-crisp crust.Marks and Spencer_4

Muffins

Muffins oozing with lemon cream; densely moist and flavorful, exactly how they ought to be.Marks and Spencer_5

 

Tarts

 Caramel tart with nuts. Gooey greatness; this one might haunt our dreams for many months.Marks and Spencer_9

 The Bakewell tart, with a sponge of almonds and base of jam surrounded by shortcrust pastry, is less decadent but nonetheless delightful. Marks and Spencer_10

M&S Food Hall

The Bakery is inside Marks & Spencer’s food hall, where other pleasant surprises await: this intriguing bag of crisps is emblazoned with the words “Honey Roast Wiltshire Ham” and a non-halal sticker. The ingredients list shows no pork, but the crisps do have something of a hammy taste.Marks and Spencer_11

Love the Cornish clotted cream honeycomb ice cream. Nothing at M&S is overpriced; pastries hover north of RM6, with everything above clocking in well below RM80.Marks and Spencer_12Marks and Spencer_13
