Note : This entry was composed before I went to the blueberry farm this morning!!  I got frustrated as the layout kept on getting jumbled when I published it this morning...arrrgghh!!  I deleted the entry as I didnt have time to rectify it this mornin, the post really looked hideous :( Trying to repost this entry again.......

Salam, Kia Ora & Good Morning ;)

Just a quick entry before I go to the blueberry farm to pick my very own selected fresh blueberries....hehehez.  Will be meeting my 2 friends, Eli and Han in 2 hrs time that is at 10.30am.  I won't be taking Jannah with me this time bcos I still remember clearly what happened last year, she almost abandoned me and asked me to go home as she had acknowledged 2 unknown females...hehehez.  She even asked them to carry her so that she doesn't have to go off with me.....aiya yay yay yay

I went for my groceries shopping in Hamilton yesterday and 1 of my friends, Dr Fid, invited Jannah and myself to her place for lunch.  We had yummy chicken soto and Jannah certainly had an enjoyable afternoon playing with Dr Fid's kids and their house full of toys...hehehez.  I decided to bring this Caramel Pudding Cake along bcos my blogger and FB friends has been tempting me with photos of this cake :p

I was hoping that the cake and caramel pudding will turn out right as I only had 4 eggs left in the basket.....if it turned out to be a boo boo :( I would have to turn up at Doc Fid's home empty handed...hehehez.  I've read a few feedbacks from some friends how evil this cake can be.  Some of them attempted this cake and failed.  The common faults are : failure with the pudding, pudding sank in the cake and even worse...1 of them had her cake exploded in the oven.  Scary isn't it? Hehehez...alhamdullilah, thank God, mine turned out right and it was definitely soft and melt in your mouth, texture....yummmmmeeehhhh :D

Source : Zarin & Anna Qawina  Why did I use 2 recipes?  Its bcos I want thicker cake than the caramel pudding, hence I combined both Zarin's & Anna's recipes.  Thank you gals for sharing this recipes ;)





Ingredients :

Caramel
2 Tbsp Sugar

Pudding
2 Eggs
400ml Evaporated Or Fresh Milk (I used fresh milk)
35g Sugar
1 Tsp Vanilla Essence


Cake (A)
140 gm Standard Flour
70gm Caster Sugar (I only used 50gm)
2 Egg Yolks
135ml Water
1 Tsp Baking Powder
45ml Canola Oil (I used melted butter)


Meringue (B)
4 Egg Whites
70gm Caster Sugar (I only used 50gm)
1 Tsp Cream of Tartar (I only used 1/2 tsp)



Method :

- Pre heat oven to 170/180 degrees C.


For Caramel

In a cake pan, melt the sugar on low heat until it turns into liquid and caramelized.
Set aside.


For Pudding

Combine all the ingredients and stir slowly to avoid forming any bubbles.  If there's too much bubbles, the pudding will not set properly on the cake.
Strain the mixture over the caramelized sugar in the cake pan.


For Cake (A)
Combine all the ingredients and mix them thoroughly using a hand whisk.


For Meringue (B)
Whisk egg whites and cream of tartar on high speed until half fluffly.
Add sugar bit by bit while whisking until stiff peaks.


For Cake and Meringue
Fold half of (B) into (A) gently using a spatula and then pour this mixture into the rest of (B) mixture.
Divide them into equal amounts and add some food colourings.
Pour the coloured mixture in the middle of the cake pan to yield a rainbow-iey pattern. ;)
Bake the cake using bain marie/waterbath method in the oven for abt 1hr.


Note :

I used 4 jumbo sized eggs.  If your eggs are smaller, you might need to increase the egg quantity.
I didn't use all the cake mixture as it was too much for my cake pan.

I baked mine is 160 deg C for 55 mins.
I translated this recipe from Malay to English in a hurry...hehehez.  I do appreciate any feedbacks if there's a need to correct the recipe ;)






This is what I did with the excess cake mixture but I didn't bake them using bain marie's method.  They turned out crumbly and dry :(  I gave them to the birds...hahahaz.

Me Te Aroha...With Love,
Anie ;)
