Brace yourself for long queues as Malaysia’s Ah Mah Homemade Cake—famous for its castella cake—is opening their very first outlet here in Singapore on 14 July 2017.
For the uninitiated, this baked treat craze originated in Nagasaki, Japan, and it comprises sugar, flour, eggs, and starch syrup. The Taiwanese rendition, with additions such as cheese, inspired the cakes made by the Ah Mah brand.
Fans of the Castella cake residing in the West are in for a treat because their first outlet will be located at Bukit Panjang Plaza. However, their second outlet which is slated to open in the coming week will be located at Vivocity.
Castella cakes have been popular in Singapore, with stores such as Le Castella selling the Taiwanese version of the sponge pastry.
The news of Ah Mah Homemade Cake’s Singapore debut came just three months after the popular Taiwanese brand, LE Castella, launched its first outlet in eastern Singapore at Tampines One mall, attracting hordes of fans lining up at the outlet for over an hour—a testament to how much Singaporeans love these soft spongy treats.
Ah Mah Homemade Cake has expanded to 14 outlets across Malaysia within three months, having sold over 100,000 boxes of the famous jiggly spongecakes.
The cakes, typically baked for 80 minutes, are mainly made of milk, eggs, and flour, and come in various flavours. Singaporeans can look out for two flavours—original and cheese.
As mentioned earlier, Ah Mah Homemade Cake’s second outlet is slated to open just six days later on 20 July 2017 at Vivocity.
