Cocoa Mocha Layer Cake




I did it!! I used up all my 30 eggs.. besides condensed milk pound cake, i made two steamed fruit cakes.. i made durian pudding for sis Wati and today I baked this layer cake.. I hv kept all my baking utensil and hv kept all my butter in my pantry fridge.. not gonna do anymore baking cos i am done! hehhe




Actually i fell sick late monday night and i was really down yesterday.. i had a terrible headache and at the same time i had this irritating flu.. was worried as we will be going to a snowy country and i dont want my flu to get any worse.. so after a day of resting.. i am feeling much better.. there is still sign of flu but it isnt as bad.. I had to finish up my ironing yesterday night cos after we come home fm France we will be heading to Penang and KL soo its not a matter of whether i hv any choice.. oh well.. its ok.. its all done now .. I hv packed our stuff and i am ready to go hehe


So ok back to this cake.. i decided on this cake simply cos it doesnt use much butter and eggs.. I must say that i was surprised to find out that this cake is full of flavor, soft and moist eventho the recipe only calls for 14 egg yolks.. ty Kak Wan for sharing this wonderful recipe which I adapted a bit.. now this is what u call.. lapis economy hehehe :o)





Ingredients
(A)
250g butter
150g sugar
14 egg yolks
5 tbsp condense milk

(B)
150g sugar
7 egg white
1/4 tsp cream of tartar

(C)
160g Hong Kong flour
40g horlick
1 tsp baking powder

(D)
a) 1/4 tsp yellow colouring + 1 tsp vanilla essence
b) 1 tbsp mocha emulco - I used mocha latte paste
c) 1/2 tbsp chocolate emulco (I used BF paste) + 2 tbsp cocoa powder (valrhona) + 3 tbsp hot water - mix everything into paste

Preheat oven 175C for 15 mins.. greased 8x8" pan

Method
1. A : Whisk butter, sugar and condensed milk till white and creamy. Add in egg yolks one at a time and continue to whisk till well combined - set aside.
3. B : In another bowl.. whisk egg white with cream of tartar till bubbly.. add in sugar a little at a time till soft peak.
4. C : Fold in carefully sifted flour, horlicks and baking powder into A..
5. Once mixed add in B and mix till well blended.
6. Divide batter into 3 portions.. one part add in D(a).. Add in D(c) mixture into the 2nd portion and lastly add in D(b) into the last portion.
7. Every layer weigh 76g and takes 7 mins to bake using upper fire (grill).
8. You know the typical procedure right.. grill all the chocolate portion first.. each layer u hv to press it and brush it with melted butter. once ur done with chocolate portion u continue with mocha portion and lastly u use yellow portion..
9. Bake last layer using upper and lower fire for 15 mins.






So ok ladies.. i am not too sure if i hv the time to post anything bef our late night flight.. hope everyone stays healthy.. hv a good weekend and see u ladies in Dusseldorf, Germany..

Note: Oh bef i forget.. I am sorry if i hv missed anyones' email or even comments on my old post.. will try to answer em bef i leave..

Lys said...

Hai,im Lys..
Walla.. this one looks so tempting...me not so good when it comes to baking bt really shud try on this one looh.. bt Rima... Hong Kong flour just a brand of flour or....? boleh ganti dgn jenis tepung lain tak?..satu lagi, apa tu BF paste? ouch..banyak kena menimba ilmu ni=D

Have a great weekend yea

Rima said...

HK flour is not a brand name.. its good for making pau or layer cake.. try to use HK flour if not u can use cake flour too..

BF paste tu black forest paste which u cannot get fm singapore or malaysia.. i bought it in jakarta.. u can sub with chocolate paste..

Good luck and happy baking Lys!

zarin said...

hi rima
i baked this cake yesterday! sedap! i like it! ahaha suma layer cake i suka kan! but ths one sedap coz ada choc and ada mocha :-)
anyway, thanks for sharing this recipe ye!

Rima said...

No worries Zarin.. dah basi baru nak reply hahaha.. memang sedap pun benda ni.. i think i will try the cream cheese version lah next..

Ananta said...

Rima,
Beautiful cake with all my favourite flavours! Wondering how the cake will turn out if I use ordinary flour... Or is there a way I can make Hongkong flour at home or use a substitute? Thanks so much, Rima!

Rima said...

Ananta
U can always gv it a try but i wud suggest instead of using hk flour.. u use cake flour or superfine flour..

Hope that helps!

rina said...

nixus said...

Hello Rima!

I love reading your blog! :)

This recipe looks great, i have a question though! what can i substitute horlicks with?

and baking the first layer, also using grill function on top?

Thanks for answering my questions!!

Su Xin

Rima said...

Su Xin
Horlicks is a must in this recipe since most of serawak type of lapis uses horlicks as one of the ingredients

Yes use top grill on every layer and bake another 5 minutes on last layer using top and bottom fire.

Sorry for my late reply.. am in Paris right now

Anonymous said...

Hi, the lapis looked georgeous!
I know this is probably too late, but I read your thread and stumbled upon the comment from Christine ang regarding the cotton cake using steamed baked. If you don't mind, could you email me the recipe as well?
tenshi_1@yahoo.com

Thanks so much
Loren Kong

Rima said...

Ty Loren
which cotton cake are u refering to? i dont gv out recipe via email so i am pretty sure she got it fm my blog.. try and look for it using the search button or u can find it under my recipes

Mrs Hakim said...

Salam Kak Rima,

Nak tanya pasal penggunaan butter utk nuat kek lapis ni.

Disebabkan mentega golden churn tak halal digunakan, mentega ape yg bagus dan sedap utk baking kek lapis ni?

Thank Kak Rima
