An Alternative to Salted Egg Croissants – Salted Egg Cake @ Dapper Coffee

DSC_0300

I’ve been wanting to blog about Dapper Coffee’s Salted Egg Black Sesame Cake ($9) for the longest while, ever since I included them into my ultimate list of salted egg dishes here!

I haven’t because they did not really intend to put this cake on their permanent menu, and it was a “oh when my resident baker feels like doing it” kind of creation. With the revival of the SALTED EGG craze, thanks to the sudden influx of salted egg croissants in Singapore (no surprise, I think Bread Talk or Baker’s Talent is going to do it as well), Dapper Coffee has FINALLY came up with a permanent menu of their range of cakes on their cake stand, and that INCLUDES the salted egg cake!

A little bit about Dapper Coffee

Located along Amoy street, just a stone’s throw away from the Amoy Food Centre, most of us may not be able to chance upon them as they are situated on the 2nd level of the row of shophouses. You’d find the place to be dark and dingy, with the only light shining through from the sparse number of windows, and some copper lighting. I don’t know why but it somehow reminds me of Ollivander’s Wand Shop,maybe… I’m ain’t a muggle afterall.

In the day, Dapper Coffee is a cafe that serves up bakes, pretty good coffee and some light meals, while by night, it morphs into Spiffy Dapper, a quirky hipster bar. Ah, that explains the interior.

So here’s the permanent cake menu for now.Photo 5-2-16, 6 46 30 PMWHICH I WAS SO GLAD TO SEE.

This Salted Egg Black Sesame cake is one of their BEST SELLERS. Although it’s priced at a pretty exorbitant $9, if you are willing to pay $7.50 for a salted egg croissant, you can pay $9 for a slice of cake I suppose… DSC_0309The beaker of salted egg sauce would not be provided. We requested it for the sake of the photoshoot previously. 

This cake on its own was moist and dense, the way i like it, although lacking of any hint of black sesame. We’ve given this feedback to the baker, and I’m pretty sure it has improved since. The salted egg sauce was thick enough (gao), and we really liked how there was the salted egg custard between the layers, which gave it more salted egg flavor, together with the added crunch of the salted egg crumbles on top.

They also serve up interesting drinks like that of an Iced Fruit Tea infusion, which is served in a shimmering blue, yes you heard me right, shimmering, and also drinks like this – Earl Grey Yuan Yang.

Dapper Coffee also serves up their Salted Egg Earl Grey cake, which I haven’t had the chance to try, as well as many other interesting sounding bakes too! Do let me know how they fared, and I could probably update this post with the new items too!
