1/11 All About Chew

There's something satisfying about cracking open a cookie to find the most gooey texture, and you'll find exactly that with All About Chew's soft and chewy cookies. But if you prefer more of a crunch, get their signature cookie: the Chewibacca is crispy with a satisfying chewy centre. It's also packed with dark and milk chocolate chunks, and topped with sprinkle of sea salt, resulting in a great balance of sweet and salty.

2/11 Schewy Cookies

If you grew up on crunchy cookies but crave the soft-baked cookies associated with the West, look no further than Schewy Cookies. Finding herself in short supply of appointments during the Covid-19 pandemic, former make up artist Samantha Lim swiftly switched her focus to baking and has found success in her secret formula for chewy cookies. While the colourful Cereal Killa' Cookies are wont to make anyone smile, we're most smitten with the Truffle Chocolate Cookies for their deep earthiness.

3/11 Fari & Ali

Filling a space in our lives that we never knew we existed, Fari & Ali provides Malaysians with a rose-scented, pistachio-sprinkled introduction to the underrated realm of Iranian desserts, which include: 

  • Noon Khamei: Delicate cream puffs that shouldn’t leave the fridge for too long, these sweets are usually reserved for special occasions in Iran. It matters not if you choose the classic or the chocolate ones—both spark joy.
  • Cake Yazdi: We are floored by the flood of flavour that erupts from this one-cup treat—an Iranian muffin, if you will. Cardamom and rosewater tumble and tussle about for your full attention and the cake crumb is neither too loose nor too dense. More low-maintenance next to the Noon Khamei, the Cake Yazdi goes great with coffee or tea any time of the day.

A full time consultant and a ‘weekend baker,’ Sharifah Samira Syed Anwar Albana founded Fari & Ali as a tribute to her late grandparents, who are part and parcel of her sweetest childhood memories.

4/11 Mrs Rylands Crumpets

It's a darn shame that more Malaysians aren't privy to the pleasures of a good crumpet. Hoping to rectify the situation, Mrs Rylands emerged in KL's baking scene just this year. For anyone who's never had a crumpet, picture an English muffin except more porous—these tiny holes allow more butter, syrup, et cetera to seep into the pastry's pores, resulting in an rapturous mouthful when bitten into.

5/11 Rise

From vegan-friendly focaccia made with fresh herbs, olives and sun dried tomatoes to Brown Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies and Braided Cinnamon Loaves, Rise's scrumptious selection of savoury and sweet baked goods are wrapped in environmental packaging, which is all the more reason to love them.

Self-taught baker Evelyn Yeoh has been busier than usual with the grand opening of her first café, The Butter Pantry, but fret not—her home bakery That Last Bite is still churning out their signature Vanilla Bean Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies, Matcha Loaves and gluten-free S'mores Brownies.

7/11 Baked In Chelsea

Baked In Chelsea is the baker whom we call when a special occasion looms on the horizon. Enormous enough to feed a whole family or to last a sweet tooth an entire week (we don't judge), these flamboyant cakes are topped with chocolate shards, M&M's, Oreos, nuts, fresh fruits and/or rose petals—talk about a feast for both the eyes and the belly. For something more rustic, try the Go Bananas loaf topped with candied walnuts, pecans, macadamias and a dark caramel drizzle.

8/11 The Cheesecake Master

This tangy cheesecake made by a mother-son duo makes every bite worth the calories. Picture the creamiest cheesecake layered upon a crunchy biscuit crust—every bite will make your mouth salivate for more. Besides their classic masterpiece, the home bakers also offer a Lotus Biscoff cheesecake with a surprising ingredient—we won't say what!

9/11 Naked Cake KL

Fell in love with Christina Tosi's Milk Bar in New York City? Naked Cake KL is a good alternative for 'naked cakes'—named for a cake decorating technique whereby frosting is used sparingly, so as to provide a peek of a cake's layers. Some popular flavours include Funfetti, Chocolate 4 Ways, Peanut Butter Chocolate and Chocolate Peppermint.

Live by yourself and can't justify ordering a whole cake? You can still have your cake and eat it too: Naked Cake KL offers 'tub cakes'  for the solo sweet tooth.

10/11 Baked KL

If you're looking for vegan treats that are as delicious as the classics, you'll find them here. Baked KL is committed to creating gluten-free and plant-based desserts for everyone's enjoyment. What's on the menu? A Vegan Banana Butterscotch Cake, Peanut Butter Cookies, and Gluten-Free Caramella Brownies.

11/11 L'Ami Patisserie

Born in the throes of lockdown, L’Ami Pâtisserie is less than a year old, but home baker Karina Chou shows a lot of promise. Though mostly self-trained, Chou also took classes at Rosalind Miller Cakes, a prestigious cake academy in London.

Aptly named 'friend' in French, the one-woman enterprise specialises in sweet treats worth gifting to loved ones. L'Ami Patisserie's taro and matcha tarts exhibit Chou's familiarity and finesse with Asian ingredients, while her 'naked cakes' carry the right balance of moistness and density.
