Taitung County, Taiwan –


In the early Taiwan, the socio-economic conditions are generally poor and the life is assiduous and frugal. In the early days, pastries are not finely packed like nowadays; usually they are gift-wrapped with paper. If it is a special occasion, people will use the red paper to gift-wrap the traditional pastries because red means fortune and auspiciousness. Later on, the gift-wrapped green bean cakes are now known as “Fong-zai cake”.

Fong-zai cakes mostly are sold ten pieces together at a time. Fong-zai cake has a crispy and aromatic crust stuffed a soft and fluffy filling which tastes amazingly good. In the choice of flavours, the green bean paste flavour is the most popular. Fong-zai cakes can also be made with many other ingredients, including, traditional flavoured dried meat floss, white bean paste, red bean paste, swordfish floss, roselle, wild yam, sweet yam, taro, green tea, etc.

In fact, Fong-zai cake is a highly popular traditional pastry which can be seen almost throughout the nation. However, with the advance of time, the heritage of such traditional paper gift-wrapping style has only been retained in Taitung and partial regions.

Such alluring and good taste has been widely spread for over 60 years, Fong-zai cake not only taste great when eating plain, but it is also suitable for serving as a dessert or teatime snack.

Fong-zai cake: 封仔餅




【特產】認識台東封仔餅 傳統紅紙包裝吉祥如意

廖祐笙/台東縣

  早期台灣的社會經濟狀況普遍不好,生活儉樸刻苦,糕餅沒有現今的精美包裝,都是使用紙張作為包裝,特殊節日要送禮時,則會將餅放入帶有吉祥如意的紅紙,包成條狀,因閩南語的條發音是「封」,又稱為封仔餅。

  封仔餅大多都是以十個為一條,酥香餅皮和綿密內餡的口感相當不錯,口味以綠豆椪最受歡迎,還有傳統肉餅、白豆沙、紅豆沙等選擇,當地也有店家開發特殊的口味,像是旗魚鬆、洛神花、山藥、地瓜、芋頭和抹茶等,以地方特產或接受度較高的食材入餡,別具創意巧思。

  其實封仔餅是全省皆有的一種糕餅,只是隨著時代的進步,禮盒包裝的精緻化日新月異,久而久之,就只剩下台東和部分地區留有傳統的紙包裝,不僅延續時代的痕跡,也保存了許多人從小吃到大的美好記憶。

  由於封仔餅的傳統包裝及細緻口味,廣受大眾好評,近年來當地的糕餅店家也極力推廣,舉辦各式活動爭取曝光,將這份滋味變成台東最具古早味與在地特色的伴手禮。

  流傳超過一甲子的好味道,封仔餅不僅單吃很美味,當作飯後甜點或茶點都很適合;搭配古早味的獨特紅紙包裝,做為節慶伴手禮送人,不僅懷舊,也別具趣味性。(攝影/廖祐笙)
