Original Cake

About 5 months ago, I saw the long queue at Sunway Velocity. I was in One Utama recently on a weekday and took the opportunity to buy the available cakes (cheese and chocolate flavours) to try as there were only 6 persons in the queue and 4 of them were waiting for the cake with original flavour which was still in the oven. I did not want to wait for the original flavour cake so I just bought the two flavours that were available.

Cheese Flavour - MYR20 nett. It is about 20 cm x 10 cm x 8 cm and I was surprised to find that it is quite heavy.

Side view. You can see the very light tasting cheese oozing out of the cake. The texture of the cake is fine, soft but quite dense. The cake tastes like the original flavour cake except for the layers of cheese in it. As this cake has been out of the oven for quite some time, it was not as soft as the one I ate in Taiwan which was just out of the oven. The instructions on the box recommend consumers to finish eating this cake within 3 days and the cake must be kept in the fridge after 10 hours from the time of purchase.

The chocolate flavour cake at MYR25 nett. It is the same size as the cheese cake with the same texture.

Light chocolate taste.

MYR45 nett just for cakes. Do eat it immediately after it is just out of the oven to get the best taste and texture. That is only if you are curious about it as some people may say that it is just a common sponge cake with a strong egg taste.

There are more branches now.

  2. Yes, we have that here - dunno if it is the same franchise or now but I would agree that "it is just a common sponge cake with a strong egg taste". Might as well buy the ordinary sponge cakes here and everywhere, a whole lot cheaper...and some can even be very much nicer.

    1. wow, the trend got to sibu as well. i think by weight this cake may not be expensive because it is quite heavy.

  6. I like freshly baked cakes. Even our homemade ones when eaten fresh are always tastier.

  7. I have eaten this cheese flavored cake and it sure was a common sponge cake with a strong egg taste. I like it as it appears like those old fashioned cakes my mom baked that went well with coffee!
