More goodies from Balmoral Bakery

Mummy is doing it again. Thankfully, I’ll be escaping her (delicious) efforts to fatten me up/give me diabetes too in about a week!

From top: Banana Puff Pastry, Apple Puff Pastry, Coconut Tart, Coconut Swiss Roll

The banana and apple puff pastry tarts are pretty good. Heated in the oven for a bit to make it nice and crunchy again. The coconut tart is AWESOME. Old-school, simple, simply delicious. The coconut swiss roll is ok too. Nothing too special. Still prefer my chocolate and peppermint cake.

See my previous post on Balmoral Bakery’s buttercream cakes here.

Now back to planning my itinerary for Santorini and Athens. Omg. I can’t believe I’ll be there in 1.5 weeks time! ūüėÄ

Mini UFO Muffins, Ng Kim Lee Confectionary

Looks like my mum is on a roll, or rather, trying to get me to be the shape of a ball so that I may roll! Goodness, this has to stop. Have to exercise extra hard these few days to burn all them calories!

Last night, my mum and brother came home with an entire box of mini muffins and cakes from Ng Kim Lee Confectionary. I’ve passed by the bakery a few times while I was in the Bukit Timah area. Situated opposite Beauty World where all the good food can be found, is this old school bakery which sells cakes and pastries. I have yet to try the savoury stuff, but my mum comes home with these UFO-looking muffins from time to time. ¬†ImageImageImageImageImageImagePandan cake

I am a big fan of pandan, especially pandan-kaya cake. I’d rather have a slice of pandan cake than chocolate cake any time. This is one of the best pandan cakes around! Very moist. Yummy!

 This tri-coloured cake is soft and spongy. It also tasted really buttery. I much prefer the pandan cake. But my brother took one bite and kept going at it.

The texture of the muffins were not consistent. Some were more moist than others. The orange flavoured one was a tad hard and dry. I felt like I was choking on it after one bite. I’d say the best flavour would still be the plain one, as well as the strawberry, jam, chocolate and banana. I’d probably give the pandan muffin a miss and go for the pandan cake instead. It’s much nicer!

Ok, all the muffins are gone. All within a day. Time for a workout!

Mini UFO Muffins, Ng Kim Lee Confectionary

Balmoral Bakery, Sunset Way

I’m a sucker for old-fashioned cakes, and the ones from Balmoral Bakery have been a childhood favourite. My mum recently brought back an entire box of these scrumptious cakes (to sabotage my diet) and I devoured them all within two days. What diet?

These buttercream cakes are hard to find these days, with bakeries and cafes selling the more modern cakes like red velvet and cheesecakes. But to me, nothing beats the simplicity of a good sponge cake with smooth buttercream frosting.

Balmoral Bakery has been around for ages, since 1965, the year my mum was born, and Singapore gained independence. They still sell the old school stuff, like custard puffs, egg tarts, butterfly cupcakes and savouries like their famous chicken pies. When it comes to old school, I’d put Balmoral Bakery and Le Cafe Confectionary & Pastry amongst the top in Singapore.

These are the same old cakes my mum has been buying each time she visits Balmoral Bakery. I never get sick of them!ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageMy favourite is definitely the chocolate-peppermint cake. I’m not usually a fan of colouring, but I swear, that cake is amazing. It reminds me of Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies. My recommendation would be the coffee, mocha, coconut, peanut cakes, as well as their rum ball, which is hard to beat!
