Steam Orange/Mango CakeApril 27, 2008
Steam our way to a healthier diet! 😛 I finally finalize my thesis! *cheer* I decided to make my all time favorite, <Steam Banana Cake> 😀 and after doing a batch, i played around with other fruits… and I ended up with… 3 variety of steam cakes….
Did a batch of steam orange cake…. instead of bananas; swapped in 120g of orange puree, beat the mixture to soft peak instead of ribbon stage this time, as i’m afraid that the amount of moisture in the orange puree will collapse the cake…
For the steam mango cake, i used 180g of mashed mango. and the steps follows those of the <steam banana cake> only difference is the fruits in it.
The main reason for altering the amount of fruits called for, is that the amount of moisture in these fruits defer respectively therefore slight alteration in the hope that texture will not be affected. well, it was fun to try out different combination *laugh*
The oranges i used in my orange cake were more to the sour side~ =X but the cake gives a refreshing feeling though! for the mango cake, i love the bits of mango in them, but however, this mango i’m using ain’t those fragrant type, therefore there seem to be an egg-y aftertaste which covers up the mango taste. =/<steam banana cake> is still the best! >.<
