Plain Vanilla Bakery (Tiong Bahru Estate)

322 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.

One of those cupcakes that you swore you were only gonna have one more bite, but end up eating the whole thing. PVB’s 𝙈𝙞𝙡𝙠 𝘾𝙝𝙤𝙘𝙤𝙡𝙖𝙩𝙚 𝙃𝙖𝙯𝙚𝙡𝙣𝙪𝙩 (~$4.20) still tasted damn good after 2 days, and I’m not sure what kinda black magic is this.🧁
Hazelnut icing sugar atop the moist cocoa cupcake didn’t take the thin grainy frosting texture of typical cupcakes, but rather a dense form. I’m the type of person that ditches frosting, but not here: it’s THAT good. 😝

cupcakes here are always good! salted caramel tart is super smooth and thick!

I was expecting a much sour taste but it wasn’t. It is actually a black tea with mixed summer berries, rather an unsweetened tea.

If you want some refreshing bite then grab this one. A handmade butter tart shell filled with smooth lemon curd and finished with fresh lemon zest.

Plain Vanilla is a great place to grab some of their dessert and chill.

A butter pastry base folded to encase a filling of blueberries, wild strawberries, raspberries, red currants and blackberries.

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
