Best Desserts in Boston

Time Out Boston |


After indulging in plates of ribs, brisket, and burnt ends, you’d better have room for Chef Andy Husbands’ take on classic Southern desserts. Any dessert with “crack” in the name is worth the splurge, and the Butter Crack Cake—made with the caramelized, almost-burnt edges of his butter pound cake—is no exception. Catch it before it sells out, but the Banana Nilla Puddin’ (made with caramelized banana pudding) and Mississippi Mud Pie (with brisket-spiced candied pecans) are strong runners-up.
