Sponge Cake with Cheese

I had seen so many success stories of Baking Mum's spongecake, finally I tried the recipe last week. Unfortunately, my sponge cake turned up only halfly success (as you can see from below picture). I suspected maybe when I stirred the melted butter too fast, resulted there was a layer of wet part, just like rubber. However, the upper part of the cake was quite okay with the soft and spongy texture. Therefore, I combined it to mini cakes ... :) then decorated with freshcream finally ... sprinkled grated cheddar cheese and chocolate.

Variety of Buns

After I realized that I put wrong amount of ingredient (I pour all the 65c 汤种 into the bun ingredients) last week, out of curiosity, then I tried to do it again and very happy with the result. This time round I separated into two parts, one part I made it ham and cheese bun and the others I made it into raisin buns. If you would like to try to bake it, you can check here for the recipe .... :)

Sausage and Otah Buns

I tried to bake 65C bread/bun recipe shared by Fatmumbaking during weekend. So dissappointed with my results, which was not as soft or flubby as hers. I found it quite difficult handling the dough, very soft and sticky. Even I kept adding the flour, still cannot get the right texture. Anyway, above was my buns' result, it looks like Pao bun to me ... hahahahaaa I need to practice more.

White Marble Cake

Got the white eggs left over from Kueh Lapis, then I made this. The original cake's name is Zebra Cake, however, I was too lazy and made the marble effect instead of zebra layers on this cake. Then I rename it to White Marble Cake ;D However, too bad, my chocolate chips sank down to the bottom. :C but the cake is very soft.

The tested recipe shared by Rina Rinso

I only baked half the recipe with the following:
200 cc egg whites
90g sugar
½ tsp sponge gel
100g butter, melted
80g plain flour (I used top flour)
20g maizena flour
1 tsp choco powder/choco paste/pandan paste/strawberry paste (I used choco paste)

- Preheat the oven to 180C
- Whisk the egg whites + SP, gradually add sugar and whisk till stiff form
- Fold the flours into the egg whitesAdd the melted butter until well combined
- Divide the batter into 2 separate bowl, one part put the chocolate paste and leave the other one plain
- Scoop of the mixture alternatively into baking tin, then use a wooden pick to create the marble effect
- Bake in a preheated oven for 20 -30 mins

Note : if you would like to make Zebra effect, then you can scoop 2 tbsp of each colour onto the center of the baking tin. Repeat the process till all the batter are used.
