Taichung Sun Cake

A suncake is a popular Taiwanese dessert originally from the city of Taichung in Taiwan, China. The fillings consist of maltose (condensed malt sugar and brown), and they are usually sold in special gift boxes as souvenirs for visitors. Some famous suncake pastry shops always have long lines of people waiting to buy boxed suncakes.

The shape of suncakes is round, of varied sizes. They are characterized by crunchy crusts. Most people eat them with Chinese tea, and some people dissolve them in hot water to make a porridge-like dessert. Some people say it is the opposite of Mooncake.
