Unless you have been living under a rock, you would have heard of Castella cakes by now as the bouncy Japanese sponge cake is currently the latest food trend that has exploded on social media.
It seems that the ongoing Castella cake fad has brought yet another brand to Singapore shores and it is none other than the famous Original Cake from Taiwan—the first cake store in Tamsui Old Street which specialises in Castella cakes.
The bakery is so successful among their loyal customers that it currently has four stores in Taiwan and six outlets in Malaysia.
Great news for all west siders! Original Cake will be opening its first outlet in Westgate. This is the second Castella cake shop located in the west of Singapore, after the launch of Ah Mah Homemade Cake in Bukit Panjang Plaza. READ ON
Biku—known for its traditional Indonesian classics and afternoon tea—is one of our all-time favourite Indonesian restaurants in Seminyak, Bali. While the naysayers may argue that Biku is touristy and only caters to the foreigners, the food and ambience are excellent; it is a place that we always visit every time we are in Bali.
Castella cakes are extremely popular in Taiwan and the hype has recently been brought over to Singapore shores since the arrival of Le Castella and Ah Mah Homemade Cake. Taiwan’s Original Cake is the latest Castella cake shop to open in Singapore.
For those who have not been keeping up with this craze, Castella cakes are actually extremely soft and bouncy Japanese sponge cakes that are moist on the inside. These cakes are usually made from simple ingredients such as flour, eggs, sugar and starch syrup. Put the ingredients to bake and the result is one fluffy, jiggly Castella cake.
While the waiting time may sound totally absurd to some (be prepared to queue more than an hour), there are many who are willing to queue for hours just to have a taste of the sponge cakes. We braved the crowd and tried them personally in search for the best Castella cake in Singapore.
