Its a jungle out there and a Swirl Bundt Cake to go...

Had a long day.... we went to the zoo this morning... had our lunch there and got home in time for Sonia's afternoon nap... she had fun of cos.. running and playing.. pointing out and naming the animals... shes one special girl and we love her to bits! shes funny and i must say that we had a good time today... we spent like a good half an hour at the leopard area simply cos thats her favorite animal and Papa the photos below are for u .. :o)) 

Photos taken by my good ole pocket camera... after a few months lugging around a heavy camera.. it feels funny to hold and take photos using a small camera hehehe

Anyway after putting Sonia to bed, I managed to bake this cake for sis Wati... Dont ask me how it taste like cos i didnt even taste it... my guess.. a spongy butter cake since it uses lots of egg whites?? hmmm .. the recipe was very easy to follow and oh... please use a 16 cups bundt pan as it produces a huge cake.. 

440g Cold Egg Whites (Store in fridge before use)
3 Egg yolks
250g Sugar
40g Cold water
315g Plain flour
1 1/4tsp Baking powder
1 tbsp SP or ovalette
250g Melted butter with 3/4 tsp vanilla powder
100g Almond powder
1/2 tbsp chocolate emulco (i used melted valrhona chocolate)
1/2 tbsp chocolate paste
1/2 tbsp mocca paste or coffee oil

Whisk cold egg whites, egg yolks, cold water, sugar, SP, plain flour and baking powder at high speed till thick.
Lastly add in melted butter and mix well.
Use spatula to fold in almond powder.
Separate batter into two portions. In one portion of the batter add all paste and mix well.
Then spoon in plain and chocolate batter in cake pan alternately until you finish them.
Bake at pre-heated oven at 165C for about 1 hour. (only if ur using a bundt pan)

Hi Rima..

440g = still lots of egg whites rite??? I'm still shivering...

Wanna ask u something...should bundt cake bottom comes out flat or rounded...sebab I bake one and the bottom is 'roundish' that is when you sit the cake dia tak rest sit flat..faham tak what I'm trying to say..sometimes I 'saw' off the bottoem to make it flat...what does it mean...bundt pan too small for the batter ke?

Rima said...

i am giving u example eh.. Like this cake for instance.. My new bundt pan is for 12 cups of batter n bec batter dia is meant for 16 cups i terpaksa bake the balance in another pan... I shud hv measure pakai cups but i malas so i agak agak aje.. Thats why mine didnt turn out that flat either n i think bec this caje spongy n light it didnt want to sink a little either.. Try not to cut off the bottom n if u want a flat bottom make sure u use cups measurements..

Pasal egg whites tu.. 440g abt 11 eggs.. If its not cos i hv lots to clear fm my previous lapis cake.. I dont think i will bake this cake yesterday.. :op
