Good Morning Aunty,
Yesterday, I've tried baking your coffee butter cake but without adding Kahlua Liquer and it turned out soft and nice
however, the top surface of the cake crack :( do you have any idea? I used 170C.
which brand of the butter is most suitable for making butter cake?

Anyway, many thanks for sharing your recipe :)


Best Regards,
Vivien

Hi Vivien,

I would like to know when you bake this cake, did you use cold eggs or cold butter? Sometimes when the batter is cold, there's a reaction when they go into the oven causing the cake to cake badly. Try to use ingredients at room temperature. Some cakes need the crack look though...

For making butter cake, the best is to use the canned Golden Churn butter but SCS butter is good enough for a nice buttery taste and smell.

Hi Aunty,

The nescafe is 3-in-1 type?

Thanks,
Jazz

Hi Jazz,

not 3-in-1, it's in the bottle whereby you have to add , sugar ,milk and hot water into it.

hi i've been lurkikng on your blog for ages and now only have the headspace to try some out... wish i could try some durian recipes but in australia, they're far and few in between.

what's cake flour? self raising?? thanks!

Aunty Yochana said...

hi drey,

cake flour is a finer flour than plain flour and S.R. flour as the name "Self Raising" tells itself that it can rise on it's own without you adding anything, which means that the manufacturer has added in the leavening agents into the flour.

Hi aunty,

After adding the coffee mixture & milk, do I con't to beat the mixture? My batter became very watery and curdled after i added the milk. The cake when it's baked is very different from the butter cake, not light and fluffy, instead it looked liked a steamed cake. Is it supposed to be like that?

Aunty Yochana said...

hi mj,

the coffee and milk mixture is very little so the cuddle should be there unless your eggs are too big or your weighing is wrong.

i decided to not put it in a loaf pan and put it into cupcake moulds. it turned out like Huat Kueh. :(
why like that?
did i overbeat?

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Elaine,

the mould could be too small ...

mj said...

Hi aunty,

hmm, don't think I'll describe the texture of my cake as creamy, and there are some holes in the cake. Do u have any idea why and how that happened?

Aunty Yochana said...
