A NEW Castella cake shop has opened few days ago at Bukit Panjang Plaza! Named Ah Mah Homemade Cake, the brand has a very short history, it first opened on 7 April 2017 in Malaysia. It became very popular, and subsequently opened another 13 outlets within 2 months in Malaysia! This is their first time venturing overseas with Singapore as their first oversea outlet, and they even have more plans to expand outwards into China, Thailand and Australia.
Chef Lim of Ah Mah Homemade Cake adapt the traditional recipe from Tamsui (Danshui) Taiwan – where the popular egg sponge cakes originated, brought it back and put a local twist to it. Each of these cakes are freshly made everyday on the spot by experienced chefs.
The cakes are made purely with a few ingredients: Grade AA high-quality locally produced eggs, milk and quality flour. There is NO added water, preservatives and colouring at all!
We get to have a chance to see the baking process of the cake by Chef Lim!
The egg whites being whisked in the machine.
Egg whites are foamed up to a point where it is able to stick to the whisk like this.
We all watched as Chef Lim mixes the batter.
So many slices of cheese placed in the batter!
More parmesan cheese bits scattered across the surface!
After the preparation, the whole tray is then placed into the oven.
Each batch of cakes are baked for about 80 minutes, and all these cakes are freshly bake every day on the spot!
Delicate cake cutting process.
There you go! That’s a portion of cake you will get. (pictured is the cheese version)
Currently there are two flavours available, original at $8.00 and cheese at $11.00. The original version is extremely soft and fluffy, tastes eggy and delicious!
Cheese version is the more favourable choice as they added a blend of cheddar cheese and parmesan cheese to the cake. The melting cheese aroma and taste may be more appealing to the younger crowd whereas the original version attracts the older generation.
That’s not all they offer, news of 5 new flavours will be coming out in the future, including chicken floss and pandan!
Those who don’t live in the west, do not fred, as there is another outlet opening at Vivocity on the 20th July!
We were told that the queue can last for 1 hour or more, so be prepared to wait if you plan on getting these cakes.
Opening Hours: Daily 10.00AM – 10.00PM
