Cake from Taiwan
Recipe from Kirbie Cravings


  1. 250 grams cake flour (1.92 US cups)
  2. 60 grams powdered sugar (1/2 US cup)
  3. 1/4 cup fat free milk powder
  4. 1/4 cup custard powder
  5. 180 grams cold, unsalted butter (3/4 US cup, cut into small pieces)
  6. 2 egg yolks
  7. Filling
  8. 2 cans crushed pineapples (20 ounce cans, drained)
  9. 1 cup granulated sugar
  10. 1/2 cup corn syrup
  11. 1/4 cup honey
  12. 2 tablespoons all purpose flour


  1. In a medium-sized, nonstick saucepan, add your pineapples. Bring to a simmer and cook until the mixture thickens and the liquid evaporates, which usually takes 20 minutes

  2. Stir in the sugar, corn syrup, and honey. Cook mixture until it becomes quite thick, which usually takes 40 minutes. Remember to stir occasionally

  3. Stir in the flour and cook for an additional 15 minutes. Pour filling into a bowl and cover it with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least an hour. The filling must be completely cooled before using it again

  4. To make the dough, add all the ingredients (except the eggs) into a food processor for 2 minutes until the mixture turns into dough balls

  5. Add the eggs to the dough and pulse until the dough becomes smooth, which usually takes 1 minute

  6. Scoop out 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball with your hands. Repeat until all dough is used up. Take out the filling and do the same with 1 tablespoon per scoop (unlike 1 1/2 tablespoons for the dough)

  7. Grab some small square molds and brush their insides with oil

  8. Grab a sheet of plastic wrap. Take out a dough ball and set it on the sheet. Press down on the dough with your hand until it becomes thin and round, but big enough to place the filling onto

  9. Place a ball of filling onto the dough and cover up the filling with the dough, sealing the edges on top

  10. Place your square molds on the sheet and place your dough inside the mold. Try to smooth the surface of your dough. Spread the dough ball so it takes up the entire mold. Smooth the top and bottom of your dough.

  11. Place the mold onto a baking sheet (or something similar) and preheat your oven to 350F (176.667C), while your oven is heating up, finish the rest of your cakes

  12. Bake for 25 minutes and take out of the oven. Set out for 15 minutes to cool off. Take the cakes out of their molds

  13. Enjoy!
