Back with a Vengeance!

First of ty ty ty for those who dropped me a liner or two.. am ok.. no longer feeling frustrated.. it was yesterdays news and after an hr google-chatting with hb during his stopover in Milan.. i kinda sleeped over it.. woke up at half past 6 and decided that i shud just move on and prepare something special and more challenging for him..

Yep yep.. my coffee partner... my food critic and my partner in crime ahakss is finally home.. alhamdullilah.. phewww finally i can put up my feet and do the handover to him.. tired weiii looking after my little one.. its like having to entertain her every min... she loves to "read" books now and wud want me to sit next to her and listen to how she spells every single word there is in that book (when i say "read"... it literally means.. she wud spell every single alphabet there is without knowing how the word actually sounds like lol) she talks so so much that at times i will just nod my head hahaha.. oh by the way.. both Sonia and I did go to the zoo after all last tuesday.. this time around we spent a good 5hrs there.. shes so so into horse riding that she managed to persuade her mama to let her ride on it twice.. err not forgetting the carousel ride - twice mind ya!

Anyway long story short.. this is the cake that I baked for hb today and the moment i heard him saying.. "oh wow" .. i knew i hit a home run.. the taste of this cake is out of this world.. its as tho ur eating mango ice cream; refreshing, cooling, explosion of flavours in your mouth!! ty Rei for sharing this super wonderful recipe.. so so glad to hv my food critic back and u know what cik som.. i think ur right after all hahahha

Sponge Cake Base

2 Egg Whites
40g Fine Sugar
1/4 Tsp cream of tartar

2 Egg Yolks
30g Fine Sugar
1/2 Tsp Vanilla Essence
50g Milk
24g Corn Oil

68g cake flour*
1/4 Tsp bicarbonate of soda*

*Sift together

1) Prepare and line a 7 x 7 inch baking tin. In a clean bowl, whisk egg white and sugar. Add cream of tartar and whisk till peak.

2) In another bowl, whisk egg yolks, sugar till pale and fluffy.

3) Add vanilla essence, milk and corn oil to egg yolk mixture then fold in sifted flour mixture.

4) Fold in egg yolk mixture into egg white mixture.

5) Bake at 150°C for around 30 to 35 minutes or till skewer comes clean. Let the cake cool and slice horizontally 2 slices and trim them into 6.5 x 6.5 inch square.

The texture of this sponge cake is so so soft and yes i didnt puree my mango.. i got someone fm india to puree it for me hehehe (mango puree u can get fm Mustaffa center wokey)

Mango Mousse :
17g Gelatine Powder
60g Hot Water

350g Whipping Cream - i used double cream
3 Tbsp Icing Sugar

300g Mango Puree (if regrigerated, bring to room temperature)
1Tbsp Rum (optional)

200g to 220g Cubed Mango

Mango puree topping:
150g mango puree (bring to room temperature)
1 Tbsp gelatin
4-1/2 Tbsp boiling water

Slice/Cubed fruits *optional

1) In a mixing bowl, whip whipping cream with icing sugar to mousse state. Refrigerate to chill.

2) In a small bowl, dissolve gelatine powder in hot water. When the gelatine powder is fully dissolved, add to mango puree. Add rum to the mixture. Mix well.

3) Add the mango mixture to whipped cream. Mix well till incorporated.

4) Use a 7 x 7 inch cake ring, place a layer of cake and pour in mango mousse, or use a large piping tip to pipe the mixture. Do take note of the corners. Add mango cubes and cover them with some mousse. Let it slighlty set for about 10 minutes in the fridge.

5) Lay another cake layer and pour the remaining mousse. Let it set for 30 to 45 minutes in the fridge.

6) Meanwhile,dissolve gelatine in hot water for mango puree topping. Mix in mango puree. Wait till the mousse is set and the topping is cooled, arrange sliced fruits, if using, pour in the topping carefully. Let the cake chill for at least 3 hours before removing the cake ring.

*Note :
If you pour a little of the mango puree topping on the fruits, you do not have to glaze them again.

- I used a 7" false bottom pan instead of a cake ring as i only hv a 8" and 9" ring.. i found out that the mousse is a little too much for my 7" pan and thus will probably use my 8" ring next time)

To Yat.. here u go babe.. this recipe is tried and tested by me and has passed the Vicom inspection hahahha.. bake it ok.. sure ur hb will love u long time one .. wink wink

Rima said...

Sure u can do lah.. baca dgn terliti.. buat dgn tenang.. insyallah akan menjadi kek ni.. tak susah mana pun .. the only thing is to make sure u pakai cake ring yg tinggi or yg lebih besar dari 7".. if u hv difficulties releasing the cake fm cake ring.. u pakai hair dryer to blow around the ring first bef releasing ur cake ok..

Hope that helps!

zUraiDa aWaNg mat said...

kak rima, mau home doesnt have penimbang2 tu sumer..jadi 50g itu bersamaan dgn berapa cawan agaknyer....huhuhu...

teringin nk buat kek sponge base yg gebu tu,tp ukuran 68g...jadik takot nnt terlebih flour dah tak gebu dah...huuuuuuuhuuuu

Rima said...

I am afraid i cant help u with this.. u need a digital scale to do it right or another option is to do ur own calculation.. 50g is 1/2 cup of sifted flour

Anonymous said...

Tq for ur tips Sis...Insyaallah, I'll give it a try..u really boost my spirits in baking..tqvm.
U'll be in KL next week ya Sis?? Nk jumpa la Sonia & mama nya...let me know ya when you're free..I'll meet you in Concorde??. ~ Aishah
