Taichung City, Taiwan –


Speaking of the famous local specialty in Taichung, of course it is the most well-known “sun cake”. Taichung can be described as the home of the sun cake. Many pastry bakeries are derived from here. With more than hundred years of the evolution, each bakery has its own unique charm, as well as different taste and appearance.

The original sun cake is made with flour and maltose into a round-shaped pastry. Afterwards, the pastry chef uses some creativity and ingenuity to roll out a variety of new flavours, including taro, brown sugar, strawberry, cranberry and other novel flavours. Some even make the sun cake into a heart shape. In Central Taiwan Lantern Festival of 2008, the mouse-shaped sun cake was introduced for its very first time, which looks really adorable and funny!

Zihyou Road Shopping District is primarily introduced the sun moon cake as the main theme. Many well-known bakeries have settled down here for a long while. Zihyou Road Shopping District used to be the old downtown of Taichung. In the past, a lot of outsiders would definitely buy few boxes of sun cake home. Ever since the expansion of shopping districts, besides Zihyou Road, there are a lot of sun cake bakeries opened near Jhonggang Road and the exit of highway in order to serve more customers.

After years of efforts, the reputation of the sun cake has gradually raised onto the international stage. Many foreign tourists come to Taichung will also bring a box of sun cake home. However, in addition to traditional sun cake, many bakeries also offer a wide variety of well-known pastries, such as green bean cake, pine nut cake, pineapple cake, savoury cake, lemon cake, longan cake, butter biscuit, taro cake, winter melon cake, dragon’s tongue biscuit, etc.

Not only traditional Chinese-style pastries are fairly popular, but even new Western-style pastries are widely praised as well, such as New Zealand cake, rose pie, soufflé, cheesecake, nougat, fruity glutinous rice cake, CD cake and so on. The unique and charming taste of pastry coupled with exquisite and modern packaging surely is an excellent choice of gifts.

【走吧!去旅行】台中旅行可別空手回 必買之糕餅名產伴手禮

邵鈺敏/台中市

  提及台中名產,最為人熟知的莫過於「太陽餅」。台中是太陽餅的故鄉,眾多糕餅業者從這裡發跡,逾百年歷史的演進,各家發展出來的特色也不盡相同,口味與外型都有了變化。

  最初太陽餅是用麵粉和麥芽糖做成圓形酥餅,後來糕餅師傅發揮創意巧思,研發出芋頭、黑糖、草莓、蔓越莓等新口味,更有人把太陽餅做成愛心形狀,2008年中台灣燈會時,還首度推出米奇太陽餅,可愛造型十分有趣。

  以太陽餅為主題的自由路商圈,即有多家馳名餅店設立於此。這裡是昔日台中市區最繁華的地方,以往外地人來到台中,一定要買盒太陽餅再回去,現在隨著商圈日益擴增,除了源起的自由路外,中港路、交流道附近也陸續開設太陽餅店,以服務更多往來顧客。

  在多年的努力下,太陽餅名聲逐漸躍上國際,外國遊客來到台中,也不忘帶盒太陽餅回去。不過,除了傳統太陽餅外,台中還有許多糕餅名點值得一嚐,如:綠豆椪、松子酥、鳳梨酥、鹹蛋糕、蜜麻花、檸檬蛋糕、桂圓蛋糕、奶油酥餅、芋頭酥、老婆餅、龍舌餅等。

  不僅傳統中式糕餅頗富盛名,新式西點也廣受歡迎,像是紐西蘭蛋糕、薔薇派、法國舒芙蕾、乳酪蛋糕、牛軋糖、水果大福、CD餅等,每一款都很有特色,加上現代感的精緻包裝,更是送禮的絕佳選擇。(攝影/邵鈺敏)
