Taiwanese Pineapple Cakes

Arthur Kao

Taiwanese Pineapple Cake is a delicacy in Taiwan with a history as rich as its flavor. There are several types of Taiwanese Pineapple Cakes; each unique in their own way. 

Taiwanese Pineapple Cakes have become the top souvenir to give to others when traveling to Taiwan over the past decade. The traditional Taiwanese Pineapple Cakes are made up of flour, eggs, sugar, butter, and of course, pineapple jam. The golden crust and sweet and chewy pineapple filling have become a staple dessert in Taiwan which makes it the perfect treat to share with loved ones. Not only are pineapple cakes a delicious gift to give but they represent “prosperity has arrived” based on the Hokkien dialect of Taiwanese’s pronunciation of the word for pineapple (Ong lai). As a result, pineapples have become a symbol of hospitality and luxury, fortune, wealth, and prosperity in Taiwan.

In addition to the traditional, sweeter pineapple cake, we here at Sheng Kee have perfected our own version of the Pineapple cake, making it a more modern version to suit our tastes. Our Wild Pineapple Cake are sweet and tart which compliment one another while not overwhelm the flavor of the pineapple jam.
