Gula Melaka Scones
AND ALL THINGS DELICIOUS
#01-61, 462 Crawford Lane, tel: 9382-4767.

Doubly indulgent, these crumbly morsels have palm sugar mixed right into the scone dough, and drizzled again with the sticky sauce.

$7 a slice, $28 for the whole cake (20cm).

The presentation may be deceptively simple, but this one is a real flavour bomb: a triple stack of fluffy, moist cake that is wedged with gula melaka icing, and burnished again with a deeply caramelised gula melaka glaze.

Chef Juwanda Hassim bridges two icons from our dessert heritage – the ondeh ondeh and the old school butter cake –and gives it all a modern update with a svelte sweetness and lighter crumb. Gula melaka butter cream slathers the layers and cloaks this brightly-hued pandan butter sponge cake.
