Souka Bakeshop: Whipping A Rich Appetite
Cake, Glorious Cake!
At a small cafe space in the neighbourhood of TTDI KL in 2012, Farah Hasran & husband Mohammed Afiq Abu Zarim worked tirelessly to bake and sell their favourite vintage cakes and desserts. They wished only to share their love for classic flavours with sweet cravers around. Everything was made fresh and as homely as possible. Little did they know that three years later, in 2015, they would be branching out to SS15 Subang Jaya and have a bigger kitchen to bake to their hearts’ content.
Of course, we wouldn’t be writing about this bake shop if it isn’t #primal. The little known fact about this shop is that, they make customised cakes! One just needs to ask a staff at the shop and they will be more than eager to help. Anything from mousse pie to fondant cake with flavours and colors of your choice, Souka can deliver. Even at the shop itself, the flavours served are never always the same. Farah believes in creative freedom. She gives her bakers the freedom to choose what to bake for any particular day. Visiting the shop once is definitely not enough.
Red Velvet Cupcake
Among their premade bestsellers are the red velvet cake and cupcake. Just a bite into this delicious red goodness and you will taste a satisfying hint of cocoa. Not to mention, the texture is adequately moist since it is made with butter milk. Topped with cream cheese for a lighter overall taste, this one is a must try!
Another hugely popular cake is the burnt cheesecake. Now this bestseller is intricately prepared: 1 hour for whipping, 1 hour to bake and then chilled overnight. The richness of the cheesecake is perfectly balanced by the slight bitterness from the burnt exterior making it our personal favourite!
One cake worth mentioning is Farah’s personal favourite: the chocolate cake. It is unbelievable how rich the chocolate is in this cake yet not overpoweringly sweet. We fell in love with not just the taste but also the fact that it is truly a classic, since the recipe is one that was passed down to Farah from her mother. There really are a lot more great cakes at Souka that we know you would enjoy! Tip from us, you can also order their cakes on Food Panda, Grab Food, and GoGet!
