Plain Vanilla Bakery (Tiong Bahru Estate)

313 Wishlisted
Plain Vanilla Bakery was borne of an earnest desire for some good old-fashioned cake. We’ll make no bones about how we love our European pastries – give us some cream-filled choux pastry and we’ll happily wolf it down. But there are days when all we want is cake. A slice of warm apple pound cake drizzled with caramel; tall layers of light sponge cake and buttercream; or just three or four mouthfuls of a cupcake smothered in enough frosting leftover for licks when the cake’s all gone. So we’ve taken it upon ourselves to bring it back to basics. We take what our grandmothers and mothers were made of and we make it even better. We’re talking childhood-reminiscent flavours made from seasonal ingredients worthy of a home kitchen, only the treats are scrummier and more comforting than you remember. We’ve all felt that warm fuzziness – stirring in the hours of late morning to the wafting scent of freshly baked butter sponge, or quietly traipsing to the kitchen fridge at midnight when the tummy rumbles for that last slice of pound cake. Remember all that simple goodness? That’s what you’ll find with us.

I find their frosting slightly too sweet, yet at the same time, sinfully delicious. Like you just want to sneak a pinch of frosting with every bit of cake.
Pictured here (clockwise) are the salted caramel, strawberry shortcake, red velvet and chocolate hazelnut.
Salted caramel was buttery and salty - not my favourite flavour profile, but if you like salted caramel, this is for you.
Strawberry shortcake was a crowd pleaser - unassuming, with a light sponge, vanilla frosting and sweet strawberries.
Red velvet was a classic - red coloured chocolate cake base with vanilla frosting.
Chocolate hazelnut was adventurous, yet not too bizarre - a chocolate cake base, topped with a nutty milk chocolate frosting.
My top 2 from this array would be the strawberry shortcake and chocolate hazelnut.

Price: $3.90 each

This is actually almond butter with raspberry rose jam, not pb. I did like the almond butter, which was quite pleasant and didn’t feel heaty. However it’s pricey considering that it’s just spreads on thin white toast. The coffee is not outstanding, but it’s still decent!

That classic you can’t miss.
The classic that perhaps only PV is able to elevate with the use of quality ingredients (& taste!) only gripe would be the slightly frozen/icy whipped cream (it’s my bad to have it refrigerated). I recall the last time I didn’t refrigerate my cupcakes, they were incredibly fluffy and creamy (way nicer then cold cuppies and slightly icy-hard cream!)

Love how PV is true to their philosophy, serving up premium and fresh cuppies every single day, even in times of circuit breaker where baking supplies and ingredients are harder to get (?) Within the cuppie sits many chocolate chips and FRESH, PULPY banana slices. The premium they charge is justified, my tummy is so satisfied 🤗

Oh, not-so-plain creation from Plain Vanilla. A classic with not-so-classic taste, elevated with quality ingredients. Of course, comes topped with a quarter piece of Oreo!

These were some pretty solid tarts, my family enjoyed it a lot! Crust was flaky, crunchy and buttery; not at all soggy. This is what an ideal shortcrust pastry should taste like. Egg custard was soft and creamy for both.

The crunchy pine nuts shone through for the roasted pumpkin tart, and the fragrance from the sage was very inviting. I liked this tart more than the other.

For the mushroom tart, there was a nice earthy flavour from the mushroom but the goat's cheese was a bit strong for me.
