The Dessert Box, located in Banjara Hills, is a treasure trove of sweet treats. Offering nearly 20 varieties including brownies, cupcakes, cookies, and cheesecakes, this should be your fix for desserts.

Sugar High

When Fayrouz Zaidi moved to Hyderabad from Lucknow, she scouted good desserts in Hyderabad. As someone with a solid sweet tooth, she relished desserts in town but took up baking as a profession only because the city had no choices in Therapeutic Recreation {her major}. Luckily for us, we’re finding therapy in her desserts. With a desire to make some desserts and recreate classics, she started with baking her mum’s recipe — classic chocolate cake. After that, she began to bake more and started receiving orders from close friends and acquaintances. That’s how The Dessert Box started.

Soon the word about her desserts spread and she found herself taking more orders. With her husband, Shadaab Ahmed, managing the logistics and operations, you will find her manning the fort {kitchen} to whip Hyderabad an array of desserts that are available nowhere else in the city. Packing desserts in its little golden boxes, this year-and-half store is a takeaway/delivery joint as of now, but Fayrouz hopes to open a cafe in future. Using high-quality ingredients, she creates desserts that are affordable and for people who enjoy a great deal of variety without burning a hole in the pocket, this one just fits.

Dessert Frenzy

Whether you are in the mood for brownies or loaves, there is a little something to appease every palate. We took a bite into Banoffee Parfait — we loved its creamy texture and how the taste of banana wasn’t too overpowering. We tried the Lindt Brownies {an interesting take on dark chocolate brownies} and relished them. While the outside layer was flaky and crumbly, the inside was gooey.

We grabbed some Lemon Cupcakes and Banana Chocochip Muffin — the muffin is a classic and stood out for us, but the lemon cupcake was a bit too bitter {and yet sugary} for our taste. But here’s what took the glorious cake — the Butterscotch Cookies, Pecan Pie {which you might rarely find in Hyderabad}, and Date Walnut Loaf {perfect tea-time nibble}. We couldn’t stop singing praises for the crisp cookies and the gooey Pecan Pie. Also if there are two desserts that will keep taking us back to The Dessert Box, it’s these two. What we are also loving is that these desserts have no added preservatives.

So, We're Saying...

To get a taste of these desserts, you can either get on Zomato or Swiggy {depending upon your location} or give a call to place an order in advance and pick it up. Plus, you can also get on Snackishq to grab some of their dry goodies like loaves and cookies {Sorry you don’t have the pies or parfaits here}.

Price: INR 350 for two
