Seemingly since the dawn of time (or the creation of chocolate), this age old question remains unanswered. Which are tastier, chocolate-based or fruit-based desserts?
In one corner, you have chocolate, with its silky smooth ways and alluring demeanour. Home to the Lava Cake, the brownie, the truffle, and the fondant. Just as nice gooey as it is atop a torte.
Yet in the other corner, fruit-based desserts offer something completely different. Whether it’s a wholesome apple pie, a cheeky pavlova or a summer cheesecake, you can claim that whatever you’re eating constitutes one of your five a day.
Here’s some mouthwatering inspiration.
