Onde-Onde Cake/Onde-Onde Mini Cake (RM15/RM7)
One of the latest cafes in the Klang Valley, Daun KL has come up with its own version of the Onde-Onde Cake which stays true to the onde-onde kuih profile. Heavily covered in fresh desiccated coconut, the Onde-Onde Cake reveals delightful layers when sliced open.
The pandan-flavoured cake is soaked in salted gula melaka to create a moist, sweet and delicate cake base which is then layered with coconut buttercream frosting, a glaze of liquid palm sugar and a thin pandan coconut jelly for added texture.
It also comes in a fancier and fun version — the two-tiered jade green Onde-Onde Mini Cake which is topped with dots of the rich coconut buttercream frosting and garnished with shredded coconut. A highlight is the tiny squeeze tube on top that contains even more liquid palm sugar ready to be injected into the cake.
The Onde-Onde Cake and Mini Cake are subject to availability. Check Daun KL’s social media page before you go.
