Butter CakeJanuary 11, 2008
Wanna guess who is the 1st blogger that cause me to be so addicted to baking? *giggle* Ever since I stumbled upon her blog 1 year ago, I will visit her blog daily to look at those beautiful bakes of hers. :p I enjoy looking and drooling over those lovely pictures of her daily bakes 🙂 Till it come to a point when my growing hunger can no longer be suppressed visually. :X In the past, I don’t really enjoy sweet stuffs, I bake and cook, but it’s always to the savory side or just cookies. Her passion for baking spread to me through the internet, through the browser! :X I’m eager to try! It started off the flame to learn, try new recipes and sharing with friends, and me spending my allowance on baking related wares/ingredients >.< instead of shopping of clothes, I will always vote shopping for baking goods! Arghhh~ *pull hair*
After searching and hunting through her recipes, I settled for my 1st home baked cake! Marbled Blueberry Cake 😄 firstly, because mummy loves blueberries! Secondly, easy steps and no mixer required, just beating and mixing. =X back then, I’m still not blessed with a mixer! So all the manual whisking and beating, therefore I will normally pick simple recipes with no whisking *cover mouth* not enough arm-power! :p after my 1st success to bake a cake, I tried other recipes of hers, and they never seems to fail!! 😀 massive baking of Rich Walnut Cake, Sugar Roll, Egg tarts in the same week!
Baking is indeed fun~ simple ingredients, same recipe, but when handled by others can bring about different results. And so who is the 1 to spark my flame in baking? It is…………
AUNTY YOCHANA!! *big Hug*
🙂 I simply love her generosity to share her recipes and her energy and creativity to come up with beautiful bakes! THANKS AUNTY YOCHANA! After silently “stealing” your baking recipes and stalking/peeping at your blog, I must take this New Year, to really thank you! (^^,) I’m enjoying this hobby so much~ Lot of thanks!
Today, I’m baking her highly praised Butter Cake 😀 *drool* u want a slice?
125g Cake Margarine
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
90g Egg Yolk
1 Tbsp Evaporated milk
200g Cake flour
5g Baking powder
a pinch of salt
160g Egg White
Note: For a more buttery taste, use 250 gm. Butter instead of 1/2 butter 1/2 margarine
- Beat butter, margarine, sugar, salt and vanilla essence until light and creamy.
- Add in the egg yolk one at a time and beat until creamy. Add in evaporated milk.
- Fold in sieved cake flour and baking powder.
- Whisk egg white and sugar to a soft peak and fold gently into the creamed butter mixture.
- Pour into a 20 cm. round tin and bake at 175C for about 45 mins. or till an inserted skewer comes out clean.
I used 210g of butter and 40g of olive oil =X Ran out of butter and margarine at the same time >.< end up having to top it up with oil instead. In total, i used exactly 5 eggs, :p blessed! as the egg yolk n whites weighs exactly to the amount required!
YUMMY OF COS! Her recipe never fails! =p My kitchen is filled with nice buttery fragrance while it bakes~ When snapping the pictures, mummy was standing around, hunting for small crumbs :p we finish off the slices used for pictures taking even though we just had our lunch! :X tat’s how good it is! Buttery and soft~ 😀 will update tml on the texture again, as aunty yochana says butter cake taste better the next day! so there it is! my breakfast for tml! (^.^ v) okie, off to school for afternoon class! Ciao people! *wave*
The cake stays soft up to 3 days! Yummy~ 😀 Just remember to store them in a container, after cooling it so as to keep the moisture in.
