牛奶太阳饼 (Milk suncake)

Milk suncake

A friend of my parents gave us a box of suncakes he bought in Taiwan. I was overjoyed when I saw that it was a box of the milk suncakes from 維格餅家 (Vigor Kobo). I fell in love with these suncakes after a colleague passed me one to try a few years ago. It was a soft pastry that flaked off in paper-thin layers when you took a bite. I have not eaten suncakes before so I do not know what is the difference between the normal suncake and this milk suncake. What I did know was that this suncake had a milky, buttery fragrance and taste. The pastry texture was powdery and soft which evoked images of the powdered milk that I used to drink in childhood. In the center of the suncake was a maltose filling which was not too sweet. Seriously, I think all my friends who go to Taiwan should buy me a box of this. I would gladly pay for it.
