Sinkhole, $3.95, from Yalaha Bakery

It's not the prettiest pastry in the case, but this deep, dense, chocolate cakelet deserves attention. The Yalaha staffer compared it to a brownie, but we'd say it's more like a flourless chocolate cake – fudgy, richly flavored with cocoa, and barely sweetened (except for a glossy dab of ganache in the center), the sinkhole makes sugary cupcakes look like teenybopper stuff. Warmed in the oven and topped with a drift of loosely whipped cream, a few of these would make an easy yet luxurious dinner party dessert. Or just bring one back to the office and make your co-workers very, very happy.
