all love is sweet ... except when you forget the cake

Valentine's Day falls on a Sunday this year, so smart lovers will pick up their orders on Saturday to ensure a blissful breakfast in bed!

In Ontario, the day of LOVE is followed by a day of FAMILY, so note that while everything else will be closed on Monday, February 15, Dufflet Beach (1917 Queen St. E.) will be open 11am - 5pm.

international chocolate cake day tomorrow!

No one needs an excuse to enjoy Chocolate Cake, but this one's handy anyway! 

Let's start with a little history lesson, ok? - From Wikipedia: "The Duff Company of Pittsburgh (no relation to Dufflet!), a molasses manufacturer, introduced Devil's food chocolate cake mixes in the mid 1930s, but introduction was put on hold during World War II.

Duncan Hines introduced a Three Star Special (so called because a white yellow or chocolate cake could be made from the same mix) was introduced three years after cake mixes from General Mills and Duncan Hines, and took over 48 percent of the market."

In 1975 Dufflet Rosenberg began baking chocolate cakes for local cafes like Toronto's legendary Cow Cafe. All of her cakes are made from scratch with natural ingredients, not mixes, and contain no hydrogenated fats or oils nor artificial flavours, colours or preservatives.
