Short gathering + japanese cotton cakes

My former Form 6 class mate, Yee Hooi, came visiting us on Sunday. she's originally from Selama, a small town in Perak, and is currently working at Penang.

told you i dont like make up lately. haha. we had alot of memories back in Form 6 time. group revisions, lunch dates(Lao Di Fang's ham porridge and french fries were our favourite!) , home cooked together (ABC soup and ice cream), and other happy and unhappy memories.
we miss you dearly girl!
back home, i made japanese cotton cakes, which turned out to be totally different from the original recipe i referred :S
60g butter, melted
80g plain flour
80ml evaporated milk (i use fresh milk)
1 egg
5 egg yolks
5 egg whites
120g sugar
pinch of salt
start by melting the butter, then add in the flour and blend well. then add in milk and keep blending. followed by adding the 1 egg and the 5 egg yolks.

in a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until they become foamy. next, add in sugar and salt and whisk them until they become stiff (recipe says it takes about 20 mins, but lazy me i only whisked for about 10 mins...)
when all are done, pour everything together and blend until they are well incorporated. bake at 170C for 25 mins.

jeng jeng jeng! even though it dint look exactly the same like the original recipe, it still tasted nice!


  1. Why does the cotton cake looks like pudding? Is it supposed to look like that?
