Plain Vanilla Bakery

Never been a fan of cupcakes. Probably cause we’ve never found one that was worth the calories.

We were exploring the Tiong Bahru area after our usual brunch when a rustic yet elegant exterior called out to us. There it was, Plain Vanilla Bakery.Singapore Cafe | Plain Vanilla

We were greeted by rows and rows of beautiful cupcakes and assorted cakes. We thought, perhaps this could be where our faith in cupcakes will be restored.

We went ahead and ordered a couple of cupcakes (Salted Caramel and Earl Grey Lavender), a slice of flourless chocolate cake and a cup of coffee.

The cupcakes were so moist and rich in flavour. Eaten alone, the Salted Caramel topping might be a little too sweet, but coupled with the cupcake itself, the taste was impeccable. The Earl Grey Lavender was almost perfect. Not too sweet and the hint of Earl Grey is most ideal for your afternoon tea.

We say it’s about time! We decided to go for their sandwiches this time round.

Plain Vanilla - Prosciutto and Truffle

Prosciutto and Truffle sandwich

Prosciutto, provolone cheese, truffle butter on ciabatta (we requested to change the bread to brioche)

Price: $14

Plain Vanilla - Grilled Three-cheese

Grilled Three-cheese sandwich

Mature cheddar, emmental, gruyere on brioche

Price: $12

Being the awesome bakers that they are, their bread is perfect! Soft and sweet at the same time. Coupled with your preference of filling, both the salty prosciutto & truffle, and the oozy oh-so-addictive stringy three-cheese were, great! Very filling in fact, given the amount of bread, perhaps it would be good for sharing instead. 🙂

Here’s the Grilled Sandwiches and salads menu!
