Their cakes are not too sweet like other cupcake shop in NY. They open late at night so you can enjoy sweet guilty in the night. Price was low so this Is your everyday bakery. Not only their cakes but their scones and biscuits make your morning brilliant.

Open wide! Aaahhhh! This twolittleredhens Brooklyn Blackout cupcake is simply lights out! Somebody call ConEd! It's a chocolate cake, truffled w/ chocolate pudding filling, topped by fudge frosting. So. Moist. The decadent at sister bakery, Ladybird in Park Slope are very similar but nothing tops a cupcake lovers' dream than visiting the original location for their best! #UES #EEEEEATS

Two Little Red Hens is my go-to bakery for cakes. Located in the Upper East Side, it’s also pretty convenient for me to go to, so that might play into it as well.

 

Their cakes are just so scrumptious. And even when you think you are just way to full, you just think to yourself, OK, one more small slice.

My favorite of theirs is the Brooklyn Blackout. It’s dense and rich and heavenly and yes, I understand I have written about it before, but I’ve been eating a lot of Two Little Red Hens recently so it’s on my mind. The Brooklyn Blackout has chocolate cake, chocolate pudding and fudge frosting. Sometimes I just want to smash my face into it, except I feel like cake would go wasted that way.

For Dinne’s birthday I got her favorite which was chocolate cake with vanilla frosting, but I added a hazelnut praline filling. And then for her birthday gift I bought a second identical cake, but had them frost the words: DINNE’S CAKE, DON’T TOUCH on it. OMG, so freaking good.

For my uncle’s birthday, I opted for a Red Velvet cake and Cheesecake. OMG, so freaking good.

For my friend Grace’s birthday, I went with their peanut butter and chocolate cupcakes because she loves them. It’s really smart on their part to fill it with crunchy peanut butter, because that additional texture is fantastic. OMG, so freaking good.

 

Two little red hens 1For Patrick’s birthday I went for Red Velvet cake because they couldn’t make the peanut butter and chocolate cupcake into a cake. OMG, so freaking good.

I have also eaten their chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies, Boston cream cake and chocolate pecan pie in between these birthdays. I’m starting to think that they put crack in their baked goods. Luckily, I may have some red velvet of theirs stashed in the kitchen.

Two Little Red Hens – my favorite cupcakes in the city


Two Little Red Hens

I’m on a roll with favorites.  My last two blog posts have all been favorites.  One was about my favorite pizza place, and the other about my favorite burger.  Let me know if you agree or disagree!

Two Little Red Hens

This post will be about my favorite cupcake place in NYC.  This, I imagine, will be somewhat controversial like my burger post… it’ll hopefully bring out some cupcake loyalties and will reveal who all of Two Little Red Hen’s legitimate competitors are.  The only qualm I have about the bakery is that it is so damn far away.  I’ve only been a few times, mostly as a side-stop after a visit to the MET or in this case, a visit to my friend B.G.’s gym.  He does a full afternoon workout + double-zumba session every Saturday and I thought I’d join.  Not going to lie, a big reason for why I went was that I would have an excuse to travel all the way uptown for some cupcakes…

Two Little Red Hens

While ordering, I was really wishing I had a sweeter tooth and/or cupcakes didn’t rely on freshness but neither of those are the case so I left the bakery with just these little gems.  The large cupcake is their Banana Cupcake, which is my absolute favorite.  I get it every time I come.  They actually had a fresh batch just as I got in, a sign from the gods that we were meant for each other.  The two small ones are the Brooklyn Blackout and the Peanut Butter.

Two Little Red Hens

Since it was after my workout, I decided to take the cupcakes all to-go and to save them for dessert.  Though once I stepped out, I realized I couldn’t resist and had to at least have a mini.  Here is the Brooklyn Blackout, which is a super duper ultra supremely moist chocolate cupcake (somewhat dark because it tasted richly of cocoa) with a chocolate pudding center.  It was the perfect chocolate cake with just a small dollop of smooth creamy chocolate frosting.

Two Little Red Hens

I had the Banana cupcake in the comfort of my home with a real plate and fork.  I am a lover of most things banana, such as banana bread, banana ice cream (only the real kind), banana pudding, etc.  Usually, banana cupcakes turn out like banana bread with frosting.  Two Little Red Hens, however, makes a great distinction.  The cake is actually cake-like and much fluffier.  It is airy and light with tiny bits of fresh banana embedded within the cake.  The frosting is a smooth cream cheese frosting that some have said was not sweet enough but was naturally perfect for me.  You could actually taste the flavor of cream cheese.  The subtle creamy sweetness is perfect and just caresses the cake…

Two Little Red HensTwo Little Red Hens

I never got a close-up of the Peanut Butter cupcake but I assure you it is also fantastic.  I do prefer the Brooklyn Blackout to this because the Peanut Butter one was injected with thick peanut butter in the center, compared to the creamy chocolate pudding.  I love peanut butter but I think the thick peanut butter just drowned the cupcake a bit.

Two Little Red Hens was recommended by Malini from The Restaurant Fairy when we met her and her husband, Yozo, at the blogger event organized by Tabélog at SakaMai.

Two Little Red Hens is a tiny place located in the Upper East Side. There are just few tables inside to eat and, the problem with a place like this is that there are so many yummy things, people get stuck in front of the counter for a long time, not knowing what to order!

Jodi was very excited when she saw that they had a coconut cream pie!

It was made with coconut cream filling, coconut whipped cream and coconut shavings. It was pretty good, although I am not the biggest fan of coconut in shaving form (I know: weird!). It was light and not too sweet, very creamy.

On my side, I ordered two small cupcakes (they offer the regular and small size), that they wrapped together so they stay tight when transporting them in a bag. The first one was the red velvet with cream cheese frosting (right):

It was good, with a nice proportion cake / frosting. However, it was not the best I had so far (Sweet in Hoboken, NJ is the best!).

I also tried the Brooklyn Blackout cupcake, recommended by Malini:

Two Little Red Hens

  

OMG!!

Those are the ONLY words that come to mind when I think of the Brooklyn Blackout.

It is the ultimate sin – and is decisively the best darned chocolate cupcake/ cake I have ever had. Nothing can be quite so decadent and comforting at the same time.

 

Two Little Red Hens 

 

 It’s the kind of cake you want to write poetry to – inspiring – ethereal.

 For me – Two Little Red Hens = Brooklyn Blackout ONLY!

 I enter there with a singular purpose. I have tried the other baked goods here and haven’t really been impressed with anything else.

 The blackout is at its best when eaten it at room temperature. The frosting is then perfectly softened, the chocolate filled cream center is oozing and combined with a flawless moist cake this makes for an ideal experience.

 

Two Little Red Hens

 

 I have but one query for the folks behind Two Little Red Hens – when is your cookbook coming out?
