Recent baking / 近期的烘焙乐

Hello there!
Just a short post today as I am getting super tired lately. Aden is super clingy these days!! Always want me and seriously I can't even go to the bathroom peacefully!! :(

Aden 最近不懂搞什么,超粘的!之前有一阵子也是这样,不过那时因为还小(Eh 那他现在算‘大’吗?xD) 所以绕了他。。
现在嘛都一岁半了,还是那么粘!妈咪我好累好累。。。家里有个跟屁虫真烦啊!:(
所以今天不罗嗦,来个简单的烘焙文好了~

1. Marble butter cake
Marble butter cake 不难,而且还很好吃!我都做过几次了~

Ingredients:
250g butter
210g gluten flour/super fine flour
200g caster sugar
5 eggs
1/2 tbsp of baking powder
20g chocolate powder
2 tbsp milk

Steps:
1. First beat the butter completely then add in caster sugar. When its completely blended, put in egg one by one.
2. Add in baking powder and low gluten flour and mix them in one direction.
3. Take about 1/3 of the mixture and put it in a different bowl, add in chocolate powder to make the topping.
4. Spread some butter on the tray. alternatively, you can lay a piece of cake paper on it
5. Pour in the white mixture and spread evenly on the tray.
6. Pour the chocolate topping on it. Use a fork to draw some patterns.
7. Bake the cake for 45 mins under 170'C.





Yum yum~


2. Pancake with raspberry jam
The recipe is same as THIS ONE. I made this for Aden as lunch cause I feel that he is kinda sick with porridge already, haha xD 
But then his taste bud and appetite can be quite unpredictable at times, luckily he likes the pancakes~

基本上Aden每天都吃两餐粥,不过有时吃几口就不要了,真是不懂珍惜食物的孩子!!到最后都是妈咪我搞定,因为我不喜欢浪费食物,所以。。。。。叫我怎么不肥啊!*泪*
Anyway,那天就干脆换一换口味,给他做了些 pancakes,还好他都有吃~



3. Lemon & lime cheesecake

Cheesecake 永远都是我的最爱!不过这次的有点过酸了,改次就放柠檬好了,不必放 lime~

Ingredients for base:
180g digestive biscuits
100g butter, melted

Steps:
Combine all ingredients & mix well then press it to a 8" springfoam pan, keep refrigerated for about an hour or till set.

Ingredients for fiilings:
500g cream cheese, softened
120g icing sugar
2 table spoon corn starch
1 tspn vanilla essence
2 eggs
2 tablespoon lemon juice & rinds
2 tablesppon lime juice & rinds
60g yogurt

Method :
1.  Beat together cream cheese & yogurt till creamy smooth.
2. Add in the remaining ingredients and beat till well combined & smooth.
3. Pour mixture to chilled cookie crust pan and bake at preheated oven 160'C for about an hour or till the center is set. Once its ready, leave cake in the oven for 30 mins with door ajar before removing.
4. Finally, keep refrigerated for overnight or till set.



Tada! Quite a success I'd say~ 


Ok, time for a nap now~ zZz..

  4. the cheesecake looks good ^^ the marble cake if wanna mix the choc into the white mixture. Either pour layer by layer then draw the patterns OR the choc when pour on top, put it like one patch one patch then use satay stick to mix them in circular drawing ^^ just my 2 cents!

  11. Marble? I thought in marble cake, the chocolate part is supposed to swirl inside the yellow - just like what one can see in a marble? And pancake with jam, not with maple syrup kah? My!!! That's a really thick base, your cheesecake. Didn't cut to show what it looks like inside. Hehehehehehe!!!! ;)

    1. Well, to me, baking is something personal and we don't have to follow exactly what the recipe written.
      And who said maple syrup is the only thing to go with pancake? =)
      It's all our own creativity STP, just like how you cook :)

      Delete
    2. By the way, yes, the base is thick, because I am generous like that ^_*

  14. I usually take my cakes out immediately. Why do we need to leave it in the oven for some time?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's absolutely alright to take the cake out immediately.
      I usually leave the cake inside is because I wait for the 'radiation' to fade, also for the cake to bake slightly longer using the remaining heat.
