Olsen Bakehouse has new mochi lava donuts
Easties, your weekends just got a little bit sweeter with Olsen Bakehouse‘s newest offering: mochi lava doughnuts.
We covered Olsen Bakehouse last September when the Crawford Lane stalwart moved to their new digs in Joo Chiat with their reduced-sweetness, all-natural bakes, prepared as far as possible with locally sourced ingredients.
Their latest creations are Mochi Donuts, priced at $5 each. If you’re thinking to have them for breakfast any time of the week, think again, because they’re only available for sale each Friday to Sunday.
Be prepared to get your hands dirty, as the Mochi Donuts are bursting with a molten lava centre. You’ll find the mochi-mochi finish in the doughnut bun, with a pleasantly chewy finish. Our favourite was the Chocolate edition, made with premium dark chocolate for a bittersweet indulgence.
Don’t feel too guilty about getting yourself two mochi doughnuts, since strawberries and chocolates go hand in hand. The strawberry jam that stars in this doughnut is made in-house, and the proof is in the pudding. Plus, these babies are made with oat milk, and vegan-friendly!

Another new addition to the Olsen Bakehouse menu is their Gula Melaka Chiffon ($8.50) slice: they’ve taken their Classic Pandan Chiffon Cake ($26) and fancied it up with piped coconut cream, drizzles of gula melaka, and sprinkles of toasted dessicated coconut.
There’s no full-sized dine-in area at Olsen Bakehouse, but there are a limited number of seats in-store where you might have your cakes, if you can’t wait till you get home.
Before you check out these sweets, head to Jin Wee Restaurant for old-school Hainanese zi char. Otherwise, MZW Bakery in Bedok has chiffon cakes in 13 flavours; each slice is sold from just $2!
