These savory fried donuts are among Brent’s Deli’s most popular baking delights especially if you’re craving a Jewish holiday delicacy. These round shaped sweet treats are drenched in sugar and filled with jelly, custards, strawberries, or even pistachio, sesame paste, dulce de leche, and many other flavors. Sufganiyot jelly donuts are best known for their association with the celebration of Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights. At Brent’s Deli, we recreate the original essence of this traditional dessert with a modern twist.
Originating from the Jewish communities of Poland and Central Europe, these croissant-like pastries are another Jewish specialty available throughout the year at Brent’s Deli. Insanely famous during the Shavuot holidays, rugelach descends from the Eastern-European pastry, kipferl. However, this popular flaky dessert is now topping the list on modern cafes and confectioneries in New York City and California. Here at Brent’s, we offer an authentic recipe that incorporates the traditional kipferl yeast dough with the innovative American flair of cream cheese or sour cream.
This Yiddish Jewish biscotti is another best-kept-secret of our best-selling Jewish baked goods here at Brent’s Deli. Made from chopped or slivered almonds, this twice-baked delectable cookie-like bread is now widely available across Eastern Europe, Poland, and even Russia. However, you don’t need to plan an itinerary to get exclusive access to this year-round Jewish favorite–because Brent’s Deli brings a unique Jewish recipe of Mandelbrot to the table, and it comes more crumbly and softer than ever before.
Signature to our baked goods section at Brent’s Deli, you will be hard-pressed to find another savory alternative to this light and flaky gourmet pastries. A famous Israeli street food and now a staple when it comes to Jewish appetizers, bourekas is a special delicacy with Turkish origins. In fact, different versions of this savory turnover are well-known throughout the Middle East. Our bourekas at Brent’s Deli are perfectly puffy, three-in-one layered pastries made from filo dough baked to a golden brown and stuffed with a variety of tender fillings like beef, spinach, potatoes, eggplant, and feta cheese.
Handcrafted from a bread-like, sweet yeast dough, babka is originally a very popular Polish streusel that stems from the concept of grandma (or any other matriarch) making challah for Shabbat from the leftovers. These days, this double-twisted confection is baked in a high loaf pan and is flavored with fruits, cinnamon, or even chocolate fillings before a crumbly streusel is layered on top. Want to taste the bursting flavor and the deliciously rich version of this traditional New York-Jewish dessert? Look no further than our bakery at Brent’s Deli!
These triangular-shaped, flaky, and delicious buttery cookies have a close connection with the Jewish holiday Purim and Haman. Resembling a three-cornered hat, these pocket-like pastries are generally stuffed with poppy seeds, apricots, or even prunes. Want to try other fillings like chocolate, fruits, cheese, or even caramel? Our trained bakers at Brent’s Deli are savvy at customizing this old-time favorite to incorporate new flavors.
Chocolate Matzo Cake:
Last but not least, the chocolate matzo cake is a classic dessert for the Passover holiday, and this sweet delicacy can’t be found everywhere. In traditional recipes, this chilled fudge cake made from flatbread is layered with chocolate. Our baked goods section at Brent’s Deli includes chocolate matzo cakes with coconut shreds sprinkled on top to add new flavors to a classic favorite for chocolate lovers anywhere!
