Original Pillow Cake/Brownies

Original Pillow Cake/Brownies
Far East Square #01-01
(In front of Lingzhi Restaurant)
Tel: 9684 2389 (Ms Tina Lau)
Operating Hours: From 11am until the cakes are sold out (usually by 1pm); closed on Saturday, Sunday & Public Holidays
(They are no longer at this address.  You can get them from Angie The Choice instead; cost is about the same.)

You don’t even need to take a bite to realise why these sponge cakes are called pillow cakes.  Shaped like loaves of bread, these fluffy cakes are amazingly soft and springy to the touch.  They’re tasty too – soft and with just a hint of sweetness so you can eat as much of it as you like without feeling jelak (cloying in Malay).

The pillow cakes (S$4.20 per loaf; comes in 2 flavours – original vanilla and mocha) were originally sold at the now-defunct OA Bakery at People’s Park.  Now, they can be found at a non-descript pushcart stall at Far East Square located outside the Ling Zhi Vegetarian Restaurant.

They also have brownies/cookies which comes in a pack of 2 for S$1.60.  But it’s their pillow cakes which are sold out fast each day.  Go early!

Note:

This stall moved to I don’t know where.  If anyone knows the new location, please let me know! I missed their pillow cakes very much!  I tried calling the number listed here but it’s no longer in use.

Note 2:

I found a similar pillow cake from Angie The Choice.  Taste and cost are about the same.
