Taiwanese suncakes


In Taiwan, some famous suncake pastry shops always have long lines of people waiting to buy boxed suncakes. Suncakes are authentic and popular Taiwanese pastries and the locals eat them with local tea, and sometimes dissolve them in hot water to make a porridge-like dessert.

The ingredients are simple - flour, sugar, maltose and butter. Suncakes may vary in size but traditionally their shape is round.
