What Makes Taiwan’s Famous Pineapple Cake So Good



Pineapple cakes in Taiwan are like fruit cakes in the West. They’re both ostentatiously packaged and often given as gifts. But what’s the story behind them? We went to a restaurant in Taiwan and learned how to make them.

  1. Best Pineapple Cake in Taiwan and the world is hands down: Chia Te Bakery. They've got the right blend of pastry in the crust and sweetness to their pineapple filling. Love it so much.

  2. Pineapple cake is nothing like fruit cake! It's so much better, and I definitely buy it for self consumption. It is best eaten with tea.

  4. But everyone love pineapple cake from Taiwan, but almost no one likes the American fruit cake. Fruit cakes is an American Holiday Joke. Some are made so hard that they are used as door stop after the holidays. 🙂

    The original Pineapple cake is not tart. The traditional recipe mixes pineapple with sugared dry watermelon (traditional Taiwanese candy) to take away the tartness. However, the tart "raw" pineapple cake became all the rage within the last 1-2 decades or so.
