[Pork-free] Plump has opened a new second outlet in TTDI.
Find the usual decadent cakes from Tao Bakes Cakes, and the addition savoury sausage-and-egg muffins here – made fresh in their own hot kitchen (which the first outlet in Bangsar lacked).
Just like the original outlet in Bangsar, the space here is wonderfully spruced up with lined-augmented skyline, potted flora, and framed illustrations of blossoms.
Plump TTDI – the second outlet
We’ve been fans of Tao’s cakes for years and regularly visit the Plump Bangsar outlet for our cake fix.
So we’re just happy that it’s now much closer to home.
Pistachio Cake with Figs
The Pistachio Cake with Figs soaked in lemon and rose syrup with yoghurt (RM24 per slide) remains our favourite. It’s moist, fruity sweet with lovely embellishment from fresh figs.
Flourless Chocolate Cake
The Flourless Chocolate Cake on its own was satisfactory – moist, decadent and rich in chocolate flavour.
But you can’t go wrong with the Kaya Cake (RM22), Messy Cake (RM24), or Hazelnut Burnt Butter (RM24) either.
Fun fact: we’ve just learned that Plump is inspired by one of John Keat’s most celebrated poem – To Autumn.
Look out for one of the stanzas in the shop.
Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells.
Who hath not seen thee oft amid thy store?
Sometimes whoever seeks abroad may find
Thee sitting careless on a granary floor,
Thy hair soft-lifted by the winnowing wind;
Or on a half-reap’d furrow sound asleep,
Drowsed with the fume of poppies, while thy hook
Spares the next swath and all its twined flowers:
And sometimes like a gleaner thou dost keep
Steady thy laden head across a brook;
Or by a cider-press, with patient look,
Thou watchest the last oozings, hours by hours.
Where are the songs of Spring? Ay, where are they?
Think not of them, thou hast thy music too,—
While barred clouds bloom the soft-dying day,
And touch the stubble-plains with rosy hue;
Then in a wailful choir the small gnats mourn
Among the river sallows, borne aloft
Or sinking as the light wind lives or dies;
And full-grown lambs loud bleat from hilly bourn;
Hedge-crickets sing; and now with treble soft
The redbreast whistles from a garden-croft,
And gathering swallows twitter in the skies.
