Oh well, I hope everything will go smoothly and I hope I still have the time to bake as much as last year.
Now....my very first bake this year...Orange Butter Cake!! Freshly baked from my oven 2 hours ago and I can't wait to post it already...;p
A recipe adapted from one of my favourite collection, "I love Butter Cake from Kevin Chai".
Anyway I coverted his recipe from Lemon Butter to Orange..:D And worry that oranges scent will not be as strong as Lemons, I've made some changes here.
Result was wonderful, the cake was just the right taste as I wanted it to be...nice!
Recipe for 7" square pan:
3 eggs (whole)
1 egg white
3 tbsps orange juice
2 tsps grated orange rind
1/2 tbsp "sunquick" orange nectar
200g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
~ Beat butter, margarine and sugar until light and fluffy.
~ Add in eggs one at a time, then add in orange juice, rind and nectar.
~ Fold in flour and baking powder, pour into prepared pan and bake at 175'C for 30-35 minutes.
I've made some into cupcakes for my daughter to bring to school tomorrow. I find that kids like cakes in paper cups more than slices, but anyway that will be easier to handle.
Besides that, I baked some with my new heart shape pan..haha! Bought them from Daiso months ago but only have the chance to use it now....love the shape and the size...:)
