As our Johor Bahru day trip was coming to an end, we were about to enter the supermarket at Sutera Mall when we heard:
Jiejie, TowkayNew! Come over here!
Upon hearing NOTCHBAD’s ultimate food hunter calling, we knew there must be good food. 😍
And yes, Jiaying had found the latest food craze, the Taiwanese-style castella cakes which has created many long queue across Taiwan, Malaysia and Singapore. Since the inception of these castella cakes, it has spawned many brands selling it and Ah Mah Homemade Cake (阿嫲老字号) is one of them! 😍👍
Unlike some other stalls which require their customers to queue up, this outlet allows taking order in advance and collect the cakes later. This is indeed very convenient as you can order first and go makan/shopping/massage, then come back later to collect your holy cakes! 😋👍
However, we were too late and they have stopped taking orders. 😱 Thank goodness the manager shed a small ray of hope on us and asked us to come back at 9.45pm to see whether is there any leftover cakes. 🙏 #PrayForExtraCakes
Lofting around the stall, I started looking at their menu and wonder what flavors will be leftover of us! But never mind, any flavor also can lah! 🙏 #ContinueToPrayForExtraCakes
Woohoo! Finally the last batch was out! The chef did a series of quality check while gently peeled off the baking sheet revealing the golden brown surfaced giant slab of cake! I was drooling liao! 😚💦
With so many people flocking around and giving the chef their eye power support! Rawrssss, LOL! #GiveMeMyCakeNow! 😂 For me, I was praying:
Cut smaller, cut smaller, so have leftover for us! 😆
But sadly, the chef whipped out his ultimate precision tool, the ruler! 😱😂 He started measuring and cut the cakes evenly.
While the fragile cakes were distributed into the box, I started looking at the ingredients & storage guide (though our cakes were not confirm yet! 😆)
Best kept refrigerated & consume within 3 days!
Woohoo! We were so lucky and managed to get 4 box of these Taiwanese-style castella cakes. All cheese flavours! 😍 The manager asked us to have a try of this cake immediately. So we did! 🎉
I strongly recommend to have a few bites of this cake when it was fresh out from the oven! It was one of the best moment in my life! LOL!
Soft fluffy cake with warm melted cheese!
Perfect match, saltiness from the cheese with sweetness from the soft cake, awesome flavor blend! Yummy! It’s so fluffy! 😱
For more epic reaction, look out for our video coming soon where our Popo tried out this Ah Mah Homemade Cake! 😂
Back to our home in Singapore, the cheese has solidified. But no worries, just heat it up under low temperature and it will taste much better with the melted cheese! 😋 However, eating on the spot is still the best yeah!
NOTCHBAD Rating: 4 out of 5. It’s so fluffy I’m gonna die!
