The love cake??




Hehehe ok ok i shud be resting today considering i am not feeling that well.. but the more i try to lay in bed.. the more i feel sick? so instead of resting.. i decided to bake this cake.. the cake that has made its name among other food bloggers like Ayu and Izah and many many many more..



Ingredients
250g butter - I used unsalted Anchor
1 1/2 cup sugar
5 eggs
2 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt - i added
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
Enough cocoa powder - i used valrhona of cos!
Food colouring - I used paste type

Method
- Grease 8x8" pan.. preheat oven 160C
- Using stand mixer.. whisk butter and sugar till white and fluffy
- Add in one egg at a time and continue to beat till well combined
- Add in vanilla essence and evaporated milk
- Add sifted flour and baking powder in three addition
- Divide batter into three portion - weigh them ok (424g each layer)
- Colour each portion with colour of ur choice
- Pour in one portion into pan.. sieve cocoa powder all over the first layer.. making sure u cover all parts.. pour in second portion of ur batter.. sieve cocoa powder again and lastly pour the third portion of ur batter
- Give a little tap.. bake it for 45 mins - mine was done in 60mins!
- Once cool.. slice and enjoy!



Tastewise?? Its ok i guess... it has that typical butter cake taste and texture except this cake has that look.. ya know the look that makes men turn around when they see a sexy lady with long legs?? hehhe




Well ok.. this cough medicine is making me feel sleepy and honestly?? i am not that happy with my food photography today.. full stop .. nite peeps!

Rima said...

Ty Lina.. i think its just me lah.. mata orang yg mengambil gambar ni kelabu asap haha

Rima said...

Ah ah Edi.. trick dia tu cocoa powder.. u know buat kek ni ade suspend sikit tau.. bila part nak pour portion u takut batter dia tenggelam but it didnt heheh.. make sure ur lapisan tak tipis or else cocoa powder dia akan terikut when u ratakan ur batter.. eh ade faham tak ?? i baca also tak faham hahaha

Rima said...

Ty Sally.. will try today if not u will see another baking post tomorrow hehe

izahdaut said...

kak rima..gigi dah ok ke?agak2nya tak sihat ni, membaking adalah satu terapy kan?hehe..get well soon...cantik kek tu.bila tengok kek, tak makan pun tak pe..

Rima said...

hehe Izah.. kan ku dah kata.. if gigi no sakit sure akan ku bake this cake.. if sakit gigi masih ade.. bunyi mixer pun boleh mendatangkan kemarahan hahaha.. batuk still got but only batuk at night aje pulak.,. pelik!

Memang betul.. bake nye satu adonan.. i only makan a slice.. yg lain dah dibagi bagi.. dah tak dak kat dapur pun hehe

Anonymous said...

Morning Rima,

Hai..sakit sakit pun still mahu membaking ya.. kalau tidak lagi sakit ya. Itu yang buat beter halp you sayang...Btw, how's your toothache? Did you remove your wisdom tooth?

Your cake looks nice la..banyak menggoda as you said it makes the guy heads turn huhh..

InsyaAllah will give it a try tomorrow. Rim, do you have any idea where to get the Valrhona in KL?

Get well soon & take care. ~ Aishah.

hana said...

DG said...

What a sexy layer cake you made .... hahahahaa ... cakep nih ye!

Anonymous said...

terpesona i sekejap ~ Cantik! Spread cocoa powder to get this effect....whoever that 1st
inspired or rather created this is truly brilliant.
U're a perfectionist...Perfecionists set high standards in their works and th4 able to see watever little imperfections that de rest cudnt.
Rima..u remind me of my gud fren who also wen
sick n on mc can still think of baking n wud actually get off fm her bed n turun to her kitchen to bake. Only diff she's got a helper to do all the cleaning up. Kalau i memang lah tak kuasa. OK do rest n lay off fm baking. Meantime u can still post new entries with pics of Sonia ke or apa2 aje yg ada kat dlm fridge or dlm periuk u.
LAKSA

Rima said...

Aishah
Huh ape?? gi dentist?? cabuttttt muahaha.. tak gi lah.. baik sendiri.. if sakit lagi akan ku pergi kedai sengsei hehe

Gv it a shot.. its fun to bake a typical butter cake thats divided into a few portions.. colour em and then sieve cocoa powder to gv that sexy lines in between the layers hehe

Valrhona in KL i think u can get it kat several places.. one of them is classic fine food but they sell it in big quantity.. 3kg if i am not mistaken.

Rima said...

Hahaha Hana bokeh yg circle cuma kadang2.. only when i take pic after half past 6pm cos time tu lampu pokok ku bernyala :op

Rima said...

Sexy isnt it DG ahaksss.. thats what i thought when i first sliced it hehe

Rima said...

Alamak Laksa.. bila u kata gitew teringat what my hb said to me.. anyway nobody is perfect pun.. am still learning how to be a perfectionist muahahha..

Yes no one wud hv thought to sieve cocoa powder to gv that effect on a butter marble cake.. brilliant!

Stefania said...

Oh...è deliziosa , bravissima
Un felice anno nuovo ♥
