Ben 10 cake??




Yep yep thats what my little Sonia has been calling this pandan layer cake.. shes so so funny.. shes so into green these couple of weeks.. the moment she saw me slicing this cake.. she said to me with a wide eyes..." uuuhhhhh mamaaaaa... greennn... Ben 10 cakeeeeeeee!!" .. hahaha






I love green.. i remembered very well the time i decorated my whole house with shades of baby green and pink.. eventho it was more than a decade ago.. i cud still remember it very well.. i was so so into english country that my house was featured in one of the top home magazines here.. Home Sweet Home (HSH) to be exact.. that was the proudest moment of my life! not cos i felt proud of the things i had in my home.. its more abt what i had achieved in my skills of home decorating... most of my nick nacks i got fm the US.. ohhh how i miss hunting for it during my several trips to the US ..


For some reason my old home was chosen and let me tell u one thing.. it wasnt easy cos it took them the whole day doing it.. taking photos and all that.. for me i didnt really care eventho my house was full of strangers.. i was too busy baking cookies for them and entertaining the editor and the rest of his crew.. it was good fun.. i love english country and my passion for it has never changed eventho right now our house is based on simple colonial style.. hb is not a big fan of english country and anything that is associated with flowers is a no no.... he doesnt like anything cluttered and even our bedsheets dont hv any flowery motif.. bedsheet has to be simple and has to be white with bold coloured borders.. threadcount has to be 800 and abv.. hehhe.. thats how fussy he is when it comes to bedsheets!





Anyhow better not complaint too much.. i love the way i decorate my home now eventho its not english country .. i still get to live in a house that is so easy to maintain compared to bef where i had to dust all the nick nacks every single day. I go to the nursery every weekend to get fresh flowers..ohhh i love fresh flowers alot.. not a big fan of roses .. i do love lilies tho.. i love all things green and white and pink..

So ok lets move on to this layer cake.. eeek i didnt realise i hv been blaberring abt house decorating in my food blog hahahha... i baked it last night bef we went to visit mom and nyai.. i gave mom and lyn 3/4 of the cake.. i kept 1/4 for my photo shoot and only tasted it this morning.. if u wanna know how it tastes like.. imagine eating pandan butter cake hahahha.. i loikeeee!


Ingredients
(A)
450g butter - I used golden churn
200g caster sugar
21 egg yolks
4 tbsp condensed milk

(B)
160g caster sugar
10 egg whites
1/2 tsp cream of tartar

(C)
270g Hong Kong flour
4 tbsp coconut milk powder (KARA)
1/2 tsp baking powder

(D)
2 tsp green colouring - I used powder type for making macarons
2 tsp pandan paste or emulco






Method
1. Using a stand mixer.. whisk butter, sugar and condense milk till fluffy.. add egg yolks one at a time and continue to whisk till well combined.. set aside
2. In another bowl.. whisk egg white and cream of tartar till bubbly.. add in sugar a little at a time and continue to whisk on high speed till it turns soft/hard peak.
3. Sieve ingredients C and add to ingredients A - (i used mixer to mix it using low speed).. Once mix.. fold in egg white mixture
4. Weigh and divide batter into two equal part.. one part add in pandan paste and green colour.. the other remain plain.
5. Greased 8x8 cake pan and start ur journey of baking 26 layers of batter.. standing and checking and looking at ur cake till u bake ur last layer hahahha
6. Temp that i am using is 175C.. each layer weigh 76g.. grill (upper fire) each layer for 5 mins.. dont forget to spread melted butter on every layer and also bake last layer using upper and lower fire for 15 mins (7 mins into baking cover ur pan with aluminium foil so as to avoid ur cake turns too dark)






So thats it peeps.. I really hv to go cos i need to get some things ready bef our dinner appt.. tonight i will hv to stay up a little longer cos i wanna bake congo bars for my kaki's in concorde hotel..




See you in KL aunties!!!

Heheh...I tak boleh tidur fikirkan abt this cake...macam such a challange...so I woke up bright and early last Saturday morning and spent 5 hours in the kitchen just making this! Just thought i'd tell you thanks again..for sharing the recipe! I'm still excited that the cake jadi quite sempurna. yay!! :))

Rima said...

Swee San said...

this is so pretty. Can i know what difference does the hong Kong flour make ?

Rima said...

Swee San
SOrry for my late reply... HK flour is low in gluten.. best used for sponge cake, paus etc etc etc.. its super lite and u can sub with cake flour if u dont hv hk flour on hand

kid said...

your blog's so beautiful. Everything's so great.

kid said...

I'm really sorry. After I post a comment, I realized that your page is a website not a blog. I just want to say apologize

Rima said...

Ty Kid.. welcome welcome to this humble blog of mine :o)

kid said...

thanks for youe kindness :)

Dear Rima,

I did the pandan lapis kek over the weekend. Oh well, what can i say - another great cake. Many thanks for sharing with us your great recipes. Just one question, what is the purpose of spreading butter on each layer?

Thanks,
Prima

Rima said...

Prima
heheh fm the very first day i started baking kek lapis.. since i was 18 i think. i hv been spreading melted butter on every layer.. my aunt says that it will moisten my cake.. hmmm up to now.. even if the recipe didnt stated that i hv to spread butter.. i still do so :op

Cake's House said...

Hi... I got your blog from a friend. Your layer cakes look gorgeous! I try to make The "Ben 10 Cake", but unfortunately it didn't work :(. It's my first time... I think it's because I use too high temperature on my oven. I have a grill function, but I never use it, when I put 170 degree, The layer wasn't turn to golden brown, but it was still soft on top. I was a bit confuse, so... I use fan assisted. The result... My layer cake was very hard :((, not as soft as a normal layer cake... and some of the layer was open (just like laughing). Do you have any sugesstion?

Rima said...

Cake house
ty for coming to this humble blog of mine.. i am sorry to hear that ur lapis didnt turned out the way it shud be.. i think u hv overbaked ur cake and thus the reason why ur layer was open and dry.. do not use fan assisted.. use grill function and thats it.. every oven has their own temperamental.. if u said that its not brown enough.. u use 180C and bake it for 8 to 10 mins?? gv it a try ok

Layer was open.. it means.. over baked..

Anonymous said...

Dear Rima,

I've tried this recipe, and with success! the taste is good, only the layers are a bit thick. not like your lapis, they are much thinner and same thickness on each layer. what do you use to get such thin layers ? thank you
