Salted Egg Yolk Black Sesame Cake

I've wanted to try this for years. A little underwhelmed. There's definitely salted egg and definitely black sesame, but I've had better cakes.

Created my own plate of the usual cafe Greg: smoked salmon ($6) pork sausages ($6) scrambled eggs ($3) and smashed avocado ($5). Coffee was average at best. No GST/ service charge. Bummer that they do not have the black sesame cake on that day :(


Finally got to try this instagram-worthy cake that tastes as good as it looks! The cake was moist and spongy, while the salted egg glaze added just a touch of savouriness which really brought out the flavour of the whole cake. Would have preferred if the salted egg flavour was a little stronger, but really not a bad attempt at melding the two flavours together!

The salted egg yolk craze is still on & this glorious rich yellow cake is definitely one for the fans! An interesting combination of salted egg & black sesame that surprisingly goes well. Don't be afraid by that seemingly thick yellow glaze! It's not as salty & heavy as it looks. The salted egg yolk crumble on the top help add on a good crunch! πŸ³πŸ’›πŸ’›

Apart from their sparkly drinks, Unicorn Tears and Gold Brew ($10 each), Dapper Coffee also serves uniquely flavoured cakes baked by Project Atrios that may raise eyebrows, but in a good way. Head straight for the cake counter, where you'd find their best-selling Salted Egg Black Sesame Cake (from $40 for a three-inch cake) with its distinct canary yellow salted egg sauce drizzled over the cake. It looks too rich to consume, but the black sesame flavour is light, and balances out the more intense salted egg sauce beautifully. If you want your birthday girl to feel extra extra special, contact Liz Yap, the baker, for a customised cake. Be sure to throw in all her favourite flavours together in the cake β€” like how our Burpple Tastemaker Vanessa Kou did for her truly unforgettable Chocolate Honey Banana Coconut Cake!

Probably one of the prettiest cake ever! (Check out those glorious golden yellow cream dripping over the surface). Taste wise it reminded me strongly of the salted egg York taste in mooncakes.


Dapper Coffee sure knows how to make things pruuu-reetehhh! ✨

This black sesame chiffon layered with salted yolk custard and a salted yolk crumble was light and had nice tones of salty and sweet. I was hoping for a slightly stronger hit of it though but fans of the ubiquitous salted egg will still enjoy this.

Annnnd, HAPPY BIRTHDAY @_hwns! Gude Tama Tama🎢

The salted egg flavour was rich and fragrant, together with layers of light black sesame chiffon and black sesame frosting, topped with salted egg yolk custard and salted egg crumble. With a balance flavour of salty and sweet, it was an interesting eat. But for 9 bucks a slice, maybe not for the second time. 🍰

The premium deal bought from the Sugar app got me a plate of fluffy scrambled eggs, bacon jam and toast with free-flow coffee for just $12. Tucked away on the second floor of a shophouse along Amoy street, this place is a hidden gem I could see myself going to for their good coffee. Wifi and power plugs are the other reasons why too πŸ˜‚ The sitting area isn't big considering that the cafe is rather small but cosy. They also had an interesting selection of cakes like Salted Egg Black Sesame cake and Gula Melaka Walnut Oat cake which I'll be sure to try the next time round ☺️
