CNY Special – Amethyst Pastry & Cakes

By , January 30, 2014

Amethyst Pineapple Cheese Tarts (Available Blk 524A Jelapang Road #02-04 Greenridge Shopping Centre. Tangs Market Basement 1, Takashimaya Square Basement 2, Raffles XChange)

Amethyst Pastry & Cakes claim that they are the first to create the popular cheese pineapple tarts. Of course there are many copycats but few can compare to the original.

The cheese on the outer layer adds a tinge of saltiness which makes a fine blend with the sweetness of the fillings.

While the pineapple filling may slightly too jam-my and sweet, they got the crust and size right.

CNY Special – Sweet Musings Taiwanese Pineapple Cakes

Sweet Musings Taiwanese Pineapple Cakes (Available at Star Vista)

You won’t miss this huge machinery at this shop with chefs at work, churning out goodies which show that the Taiwanese delights are not imported, but made fresh within the store at Star Vista.

Sweet Musings sells Taiwanese pineapple cakes ($22.50 for box of 10 pieces) made in-house.

The ‘Lao Ban Niang’ Erica Wang says that she uses only high quality imported ingredients, such as gluten-free ‘super-light’ flour from Taiwan to achieve the texture she wants. The pineapple jam is slightly bitter, not as sweet as the other brands, good for those who likes a lighter touch. (Read: Sweet Musings The Star Vista)

CNY Special – SunnyHills Pineapple Cakes

SunnyHills Pineapple Cakes (Available at Raffles Hotel)

Though there are many Taiwanese branded pineapple cakes in Singapore, SunnyHills ($25 for box of 10) takes the lead for its quality.

I have tried many Taiwanese pineapple cakes. But these made with Nantou’s indigenous pineapples, New Zealand butter, Japanese gourmet flour, and plump-yolked eggs where the chickens listen to classical music, are buttery fragrant and pleasant tasting. The jam has a mellow sweetness without being overpowering. (Read: SunnyHills Singapore Raffles Hotel)

Kele Cake’s Pineapple Tarts (Available at Jurong Point, Causeway Point, AMK Hub, Parkway Parade, and factory at 15 Jalan Tepong, Jurong Food Hub #06-16 Singapore 619336)

Kele Cakes & Cookies’ Pineapple Tarts shot into fame when they won the ‘Best-Tasting Pineapple Tarts’ out of 100 entries in a search conducted by a local mall.

They are a family business which has been around for almost 30 years, with the current recipe tweaked through years of experimentation and feedback.

Kele has a balanced touch on the tarts – pastry not too hard or crumbly, with generous portion of pineapple jam without tilting to overly sweet or sour. It is yes, just nice.

Some food reviewers claimed that “they are the best pineapple tarts” and “the king of pineapple tarts”. These tarts from Le Cafe Confectionery & Pastry, better known as ‘golf balls’, are big, fat and huge – almost the size of a ping pong. If you like your tarts buttery and crumbly, you would fall in love with this. Their balls are heavily packed with home-made pineapple jam which are all manufactured in-house.
