Banana Cakes @ Hiap Joo Bakery, Malaysia,JB

Finally got to taste this banana cake that has been reviewed and raved by so many influencers/bloggers despite visiting Malaysia, Johor Bahru, so many times!

Quick pop by to Hiap Joo Bakery at Jalan Tan Hiok Nee (maybe 10 min walk from Woodlands Checkpoint), one of Johor’s oldest and best known traditional bakery 老字号, to see what I can lay my hands on after my lunch at Restoran Hua Mui as their freshly baked goods are snapped up in no time! Lucky me, no queue!

Check out these freshly baked banana cakes cooling in their ready to go containers.

5 pieces for small and 10 pieces for big.

Very simple and traditional bakery.

Price list at the counter (with effect from 2018-06-01).

From the price list, I got to know the 12 items that they are selling and prices start from RM3.50 for 5 plain buns to RM13.20 for a big butter/coffee cake that is available only on Thursday morning!

My takeaway of a big Banana cake for RM9.60 (~SGD3.20).

Closeup of the moist, not oily and not very sweet banana cake. The old folks like it, me too! 🙂 Try it if you are in the area. They are good for a few days if kept properly so you can definitely buy a few boxes home!
