pink said...

aunty, how do we "grill" a cake?

yochana said...

pink,

your oven has a top heat - grill. The sign on your oven is a zig-zag pattern showing top heat.

Hi Yochana,

The recipe asks for 25 eggs! Is it correct? If so, what do you do with the extra egg white?

Su

yochana said...

Yes it's correct su.

Use egg white for cooking or bake cakes like fly african, macarons, angel cake...lots of cakes uses egg white only. Even pound cake uses egg white only.

Hi Aunty

How thick should each layer be? I saw some video clip some people have a standard weight of cream per layer.

If I use another size of sq tray, is it still okay

Thanks

yochana said...

Hi qing,

Amount is based on the size of a cake tin. For an 8" sq., you can use about 100 to 120 gm.

for Lapis you can use other size if you want to. But then again, there will be a difference in height.

Hi Aunty

What is the temperature when grilling.

Is it 150 also

Thanks

yochana said...

Hi qing,

Use 175C or gas mark 4 to 4 1/2.
I used Baby Belling oven and used 4 to 4 1/2 mark.

Hi Fansi,

For a normal lapis spice, it could be kept very long in the fridge, I think at least 2 weeks and for this prune lapis, more than a week, chilled in the fridge.

Hi aunty yo, based on your experience do you think I can prepare the batter and bake as it is, that is - baking it as a whole cake without grilling them layer by layer ? If it is possible, do I need to adjust the temperature? Thanks, Chris

yochana said...

Oh No Chris...it will become a big lump of nonya kueh.

Hi Yochana,

My friend recommended your blog to me & I'm amazed at how great your bakes look : )

Can I ask you sth - Do I use this recipe if I would like to make a classic lapis?

Thanks,
mao

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi,
I just try to bake a kek lapis today, and everything is miserably failed.
1st of all, is my oven. I use 170C grill, how come its so smoky hot? My son I burnt the kitchen :P

I reduced to 150C, my 2nd layer was burnt in 2 mins. At the end, I threw the whole thing.

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi melanie,

You mean you used this recipe or another recipe? This recipe is tested and it won't burn like yous. Your grill's temperature is not accurate anymore.

Hi Aunty,
I also had the same problem as Melanie. Think my oven's grill function is very hot, burnt top layer in 2 min flat. In the end, i lowered grill temp to 120 deg cel and opened oven door a little. Top part of each layer is nicely brown, but sadly i think inside still not very cooked. How? M using a Tefal convection oven.

Rgds,
Janice

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Janice,

I'm using a Baby Belling. Not too sure of your oven.
