Looks like the Taiwanese style pineapple cakes are gaining popularity in Singapore as gifts during the Mid-Autumn festival, other than traditional lotus mooncakes. (Read: Why Do Taiwanese Give Pineapple Cakes During Mid-Autumn?)
Din Tai Fung is also offering their pineapple cakes as gift sets, $24.80 nett for a box of eight with premium Jasmine tea. These pineapple cakes are baked in their Taiwan’s central kitchen and air-flown to Singapore! (Read: Din Tai Fung at Taipei 101 + Guide To Eating Xiao Long Bao The Right Way)
The filling is ‘jam-my’, made with Songshan pineapples which is slightly sweet and not too acidic or tangy. Be careful though, their buttery golden crust is very crumply, and I am very sure bits will fall off if you just bite off without a plate holding the crumbs. I kind of like that because a full complete block would otherwise feel overly artificial.
