The famous Baked cupcakes at the origninal Red Hook Bakery on Van Brunt Street. I wandered over after Ikea, a good idea to combine the local flavor with the Swedish giant. Baked is adorable, piney walls with picnic style tables and a large chandelier in the middle. A visible kitchen is in the rear where all the goodies are baked(tadum). Lot's of brownie choices, I tried the salty dark chocolate one which was quite good. A bourbon /pecan bread pudding with golden raisins was also tasty. What knocked my socks off was a "chocolate malt" which was a dark spicy hot chocolate with Jacques Torres chocolate. Baked also makes homemade granolas, lot's of cafe options abound in this neighborhoody joint.
