The BEST Brownies in Dubai.....and much much more!

I was passed along the contact details of Lidija Abughazaleh as if I was being handed over some top secret black market information. Lidija is a stay at home mom and a talented baker, but clarifies she is not a pastry chef.  She makes some of the best baked goods in town out of her home kitchen and is establishing quite a name for herself in the foodie circuits around the city.  I had the pleasure of enjoying some of these gooey and delicious morsels of heaven and decided I needed to meet the woman behind this product of chocolatey perfection......
I learned we shared a lot of similar passions and she even provided me with some samples of her other goods as seen below.  This is a chocolate mocha buttercream dream....pretty good, but I'm still partial to the brownie!
 Another variation of the layers cakes, this is a whipped chocolate ganache layer cake.  Great for a birthday or special occasion.
 Now this is Lidija's pride and joy...the Carrot Cake.  She claims it's the best in dubai, and I have to say it definitely gives LimeTree Cafe some serious competition!  It's slightly sweeter than the others, perhaps with a hint of pineapple, but the cream cheese icing is velvety, soft and delicious!
Lidija's Kitchen has a limited menu, but everything is done with a touch of LOVE.  If you're looking for a special treat or a quick gift idea, this is the right choice.  Brownie and cake orders need 1-2 days advance notice, and slightly longer for the more custom orders.  For more information, check out Lidija's menu:


  1. Those look excellent! Thanks for linking to the menu :)

  2. I can vouch for the carrot cake. It rocks and I come from LONDON to eat it!

  3. Lidija's cakes are amazing, and so is she! A very talented baker, and a super nice lady, always eager to please her customers!

  4. Couldn't agree with all of you more.....I am just looking for an excuse to enjoy these treats more often. They are far too delicious for me to just keep around the house, I don't think I would ever leave!

  5. Lidijas baking is always a reocuuring thought! My favorite is her carrot cake. Oh ya and chocolate-chocolate chip banana bread. And of course her savory sandwiches...I think get the point. Delish every time!

  6. Lidija is a delicate and sensitive lady, and her cakes present her !! Once u have a bite , u can not but go all the way. That's very dangerous .. But it is worth it.
    So every time u want something special, just check her menu and every thing is delicious !!! Trust me, I know what I am talking about...

  7. Everything she makes is perfection. If you haven't tried her food yet, you are really missing out!

  8. where can i buy them? i am craving for brownies!!!
