Sun Cakes: A Maltose Pastry

Over Chinese New Year (around late January this year),  I was introduced to a Taiwanese pastry called sun cakes.  This pastry has a maltose filling, and according to, they originated from Taichung, Taiwan.  However, they were  not called ‘suncakes’ until  Taiwanese bakery ‘Sunbooth‘ sold them by its name and made them popular.
