Antoinette Queen's Castella Collection - Ondeh Ondeh, Earl Grey Cheese, Vanilla Cheese, which one is the best?

Joining in the latest Castella cakes craze is The Queen's Castella Cake Collection by Antoinette. The more popular flavours - Ondeh Ondeh and Nutella Cheese, will be snapped up before 2pm on a weekday. Customers can make a pre-booking but the minimal number of cakes is 6. Be sure to gather your friends to make a pre-booking to avoid disappointment.

Ondeh Ondeh with Gula Melaka
What exactly is Castella? Castella is a popular Japanese sponge cake made extremely popular by LE Castella, a Taiwanese brand, which has opened its first branch in Tampines 1. LE Castella is extremely popular in Taiwan. This craze was followed by Ah Mah Homemade Cakes in Bukit Panjang Plaza.  Ah Mah is extremely popular in Malaysia. And Antoinette has just launched its Castella cakes on 15 July 2017 in its Penhas branch (Kallang). Its mandarin galley branch will be launching the cakes on 22 July 2017. Award-winning Chef and Owner, Pang Kok Keong, has come up with 6 enticing flavours - Ondeh Ondeh (S$11), Earl Grey (S$12), Earl Grey Cheese (S$15), Vanilla (S$8), Vanilla Cheese (S11), Nutella (S$13).

We tried Ondeh Ondeh, Earl Grey Cheese, Vanilla and Vanilla Cheese. Our favourite is the ONDEH ONDEH and this was also recommended by 8Dayseat and some fellow foodies on Foodies Singapore - a Facebook Group. The taste of Ondeh Ondeh reminded me of a very fluffy and delicious Pandan Chiffon cake with a hint of Gula Melaka. I could have it for tea break anytime.

Beautiful Packaging

I love the packaging. It looks very atas and it comes in a beautifully printed box placed in the Antoinette paper bag. The Ondeh Ondeh makes a wonderful gift anytime.


The best of three worlds

Earl Grey Cheese and Vanilla Cheese have a savoury cheddar and parmesan cheese glaze on top of the cakes. If you like a very rich version of the cheese in Cheeseburgers, you will be very excited. The Earl Grey cake itself, without the cheese, was AWESOME. The cake was thoroughly infused with the fragrance of the Earl Grey tea. Because of this reason, I prefer it without cheese because I really enjoyed the Earl Grey flavour. For similar reasons, I prefer the Vanilla cake without the cheese.

Are you wondering why we did not purchase the Nutella? My buddy told me that we could just spread our own Nutella onto the Vanilla cake to create the same flavour!

I will be happy to eat the Ondeh Ondeh and Earl Grey again!
