I have been busy working on my first eBook entitled “Dim Sum & Desserts” for the past few months. Very happy that it is in the final proofreading now, soon it will be released. Here is the cover for the eBook, do you like it?
Time flies, I can’t believe that MaomaoMom.com is turning ONE pretty soon as a bilingual blog. Thank YOU all for your continuous support. I will have a giveaway of InstantPot electric pressure cooker (my favorite pressure cooker) as a small token of my appreciation, starting on this coming Sunday, June 9th at 2 PM. Please come by and join me to celebrate.
When I saw this cake at jocooks.com, its name intrigued me. It’s amazing that only one batter turns into a three-layered cake, with a layer of custard in the middle! The trick for this cake is to make the batter very thin, similar to a crepe batter. I have modified the original recipe with less butter and sugar, and it turned out great.
Prepare time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 60 minutes
Yield: 16 servings
1: 4 extra large egg whites, ½ tsp white vinegar (or 1/3 tsp cream of tartar), ¼ cup sugar (60g);
2: 4 extra large egg yolks, ¼ cup sugar (60g);
3: 1/3 cup butter melted, 1 tsp vanilla extract;
4: 3/4 cup +1 tbsp cake & pastry flour (110g);
5: 2 cups lukewarm milk (478g);
6: 1 tsp butter, softened;
7: 2 tbsp icing sugar.
1: Preheat oven at 310F/155C. Grease an 8 x 8-inch baking dish with 1 tsp butter and set aside.
2: Separate eggs into two clean and dry mixing bowls (Picture 1). Add white vinegar to egg whites and beat with a handheld mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Then add ¼ cup sugar and beat until stiff (Picture 2).
4: Slowly add warm milk (Picture 7) and beat at low speed until well mixed (Picture 8). Add 1/3 of the beaten egg white into the yolk and flour mixture (Picture 9) and fold with a spatula until mixed. Then pour it back to the remaining 2/3 of the beaten egg whites (Picture 10). Gently fold with a spatula to mix very well (Picture 11).
5: Pour the batter into a 8 x 8-inch buttered Pyrex baking dish (Picture 12). Bake in the preheated oven at 310 F/155C for 55-60 minutes until surface turns light golden.
