Hi Aunty,

I noticed that the recipe doesn't need baking powder and yet the cake still rise beautifully. Definitely a must try recipe :) Thanks for sharing.

May

Hi May,

There's no baking powder. Used Bicarbonate of Soda instead.

Hey,

I am really enjoying your blog and the recipes that you had so kindly shared. I tried baking the Three Citrus Cream Cheese Pound Cake twice, the first time the texture was great but it was a tad too sweet and it was delicious. The 2nd time I made it, I reduced the sugar but this time the texture became very crumpy and I also noticed that the batter after I added the eggs begin to curd. Is there something I did wrong ? How long should I cream the butter, cheese and sugar ? When should we add the lemon juice....

Thanks !

Dear Serene,

I know you don't have a sweet tooth but cakes are cakes, they need sugar to make them look beautiful. You can cut down the sugar but not too much. Sugar caramelize while baking and thus gives the brown elegant look.
While beating eggs in and if you find that it starts to cuddle, you can add in 1 or 2 tablespoon of flour into it and it will stop cuddling.

Hi aunty,

I just came across your blog and the cake looks delicious. I was just wondering if there is any difference in the temperature if I don't use a loaf pan and use a square 8" cake pan instead?

Thanks!

Hi Anonymous,

Zest means the thin skin covering the fruit. Use a zester to scrap the skin out ...

Hi Yochana,

Sorry to ask, what is a zester? where can I buy one? Can I don't add orange, lemon & lime zest just add orange & lemon juice? Thanks

Hi anonymous.

A zester is like a scraper. You can get it from Chong Trading.
