Salam, Kia Ora...

Firstly I would like to wish my sister a very happy birthday....hope you like the little gift that was delivered today ;)  Can't bake my sis a cake, so I baked one for us instead...hahahaz. 

Definitely not the most beautiful cake on the blog but taste wise it was absolutely soft and yummy.  Jannah ate all that 3 slices on the plate, I had 2, gave 6 slices to my neighbour and there's only 2 pieces left.  Hb is not a fan of this cake.  As I've said in 1 of my entries before, if it ain't sloppily iced with thick icing, it won't be a big hit amongst the kiwis >o<  Oh well, 1 each for me and Jannah for breakfast tomorrow, yum yum yum yum delicioso...hehehez

I should have baked the cake maybe 10 mins more so that the crust will be a bit darker.  I don't know why I decided to remove it from the oven.  I baked at 140 deg C (the oven temperature must have been too low and the cake was in the oven for almost an hour, that's why I panicked I supposed....hehehez.  I've forgotten at what temperature did I baked this cake before.  Hmmzzz I should have blogged abt it but it was too late bcos I didn't have a blog last time...hahahaz

Another fault was I removed the cake from the pan and cut it while it was still very warm bcos Jannah kept bugging me for a slice.  Aiya yay yay yay she was throwing herself around for a piece of, I had to give in.  Luckily she was patient enough to wait for me to photo the cake...hehehez.  She even said "wait ok, mama ambik gambar, smile dulu ok" *slaps forehead*

Photo recipe courtesy of Irene Chia, I was lazy to retype the recipe as the recipe in Rinn Chan's FB is in Malay language :D hehehez

Note :
  1. Ingredients B - I used 2 tsp pandan paste and added 105ml water.
  2. Ingredients A & D - I reduced the quantity of sugar to 50g each.
  3. Ingredients C - I used standard flour instead of cake flour.
  4. I baked mine at 140 degs C....haizz what was I thinking :( Next time, I should bake it at 160 deg C.
  5. I did not bang the cake pan at all, before and after it was baked.  I've read some where that the airier the cake mixture the better it will rise.
To all home bakers that have tried this recipe and failed, please do not give up ;)  It took me 3 or 4 failures before I finally got the cake right.  Thank you to sifu Rima who guided me abt 1 yr ago and to Aunty Yo's very informative blog. 

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