Buttertrade is an online marketplace where you can browse and buy from small boutique bakeries. There are more than 100 cakes including novel & local flavours, vegan, halal, gluten-free and even a dedicated section for our four-legged furry friends!
It's convenient - order any time and pay a flat delivery fee. Buyers can even earn a 3% rebate to be offset against future purchases.
This is the Ondeh Ondeh Cake from In The Brickyard (we're doing a giveaway of one of these, at the end of the post). It's one of Buttertrade's bestsellers. You get creamy gula melaka frosting sandwiched between layers of local pandan cake and toppings of snowy toasted coconut flakes.
There are also two other local flavours:
Pulut Hitam Cake - Light coconut cake with a layer of pulut hitam (black glutinous rice porridge) for that extra bite and slathered with rich coconut cream and coconut shreds.
Orh Nee Cake - Fluffy sponge cake, infused with chunky yam cream topped with crispy coconut flakes and gingko nuts.
They may be introducing cupcake versions of these soon. I got to try samples of the ondeh ondeh and pulut hitam cupcakes; they are filled with gula melaka syrup and pulut hitam porridge respectively in the middle.
I love the pulut hitam ones - they are just the perfect sweetness! The ondeh ondeh one was a bit too sweet because they are super generous with the gula melaka filling! Well, for me anyway, because I cut out half the sugar in all my recipes. But if you have a sweet tooth, these will be perfect for you.
Oh I hope they make the Orh Nee ones also! Pipe them full of mashed yam and put ginkgo nuts on the frosting!
