Buttermilk Country Cake

Dear Fans and friends,

I’m totally impressed by the number of telephone calls, msn, comments and messages that was sent to me ,consoling me and giving me great encouragement. Thank you so much and I really appreciate it..

I promised to send recipes via e-mail but it seems quite impossible cos the amount of emails I get per day is tremendous and enormous that I couldn’t cope up with.

I have come to a decision that the most requests for that particular recipe will be posted in my blog. It makes my work easier this way….and at the same time not disappointing all of you, killing two birds with one stone. I will post recipes at random…

Don’t worry about that nasty person. She got a poor upbringing. Her parents never bring her up well. I guess she must have had an unhappy childhood to make her into such a furious person, leaving nasty remarks without any guilt. Funny….I don’t know her and what gives her the right to assess me.

Last but not least, thank you all once again.

Rgds. Aunty Yochana

So, here's my recipe:





Ingredients:

80 gm. egg yolks
160 gm. buttermilk
5 gm. vanilla (1 tsp)
200 gm. sifted cake flour
200 gm. sugar
15 gm. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
120 gm. butter

(1) In a bowl, lightly combine the yolks with 40 ml. of the buttermilk.
(2) In a mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and mix on low speed for 30 secs to blend.
(3) Add the butter and remaining buttermilk. Mix on low speed until the dry ingredients are moistened. Increase to medium speed and beat for 2 mins. to aerate and develop the cake's stucture.
(4) Gradually add in the egg yolk mixture and beat for another min.
(5) Pour batter into an 8" round pan and bake for about 50 to 60 mins. or till skewer inserted comes out clean.
(6) Let the cake cool in the pan on a rack for 10 mins then invert the cake onto a cooling rack and leave to cool completely.
(7) Slice and serve.

yochana said...

Hi cY,

Buttermilk is cultured milk, usually low-fat milk and lower in cholestrol. Because of the culturing process, it has an acidic tang. If you can't find Buttermilk , you can subsitute with 2/3 cup plain yoghurt and 1/3 cup milk. Mix together and let it sit for at least 20 to 30 mins.

You can buy Buttermilk from Jasons, Cold Storage, Giant, Carrefour. Brand - Dairy Farmers.

Well said. Sad to say, there are a bunch of jealous people around who just cannot stand people who are better off than themselves. They are miserable people who just do not have a life. It is good that you have chosen to ignore such as them.
I would like to say thank you for being so kind to continue sharing your recipes.
Very much appreciated.

Dear Aunty,

Am so glad to see ur recipe back up here. Even I felt tht its gonna be really time consuming for you to reply to every email :) Don't bother abt those negative remarks afterall empty vessels make the loudest noise! Tht sum1 is just plain jealous. You have 1 of the best food blog. I visit this space everyday n i did try a few of ur recipes. My mom always said tht, Sum1 who cook/bake from the heart will always be glad to spread wat they know. You are 1 such person. Thanks for always sharing ur knowledge with us. Keep up the good work n keep smiling! :)

Bernice said...

Hi Auntie Yochana, it's great to hear that you're sharing your recipes once again and the fact that, you're not disturbed by that nasty person. Well, people are always jealous of talented people (like you) so yes, IGNORE her!!! There's a great base of fans out there who will always support you!!!

Bridget said...

Hi Yochana,
Hope you are well. I'm very happy to read that you decide to ignore the ugliness of certain people. Seems you have an overwhelming amount of fan base. When someone is as famous and loved as you are, there are bound to be some jelous people out to get you (look at Angelina Jolie lol) ;).

I've always appreciate your recipes, even if it ends up looking nothing like yours, hubby still enjoys the flavors. I look forward to trying more of your recipes. Keep up the good work and be proud of your fame.

Take care,
Bridget

Dear Yochana,
I am happy at your courage, strength and most importantly compassion.
You're right, people who can say things like that, probably lacked something in their life (i.e. a heart!)
Also for every billion people who love something, theres always a few who for no particular reason at all want to disagree... and its silly. Just know that you are blessed with an awesome talent and have much people who love, support and admire you : 3

Sincerely,
Jens
P.s. by chance will you be sharing the banana white chocolate cake recipe : D?

Thank you for all your kindness in sharing your joy with us. We are very fortunate to be able to view your recipes. My day is never complete without having a look at your creations. I am sure it is lots of hard work, perseverance, passions, sacrifice and costly too. I know as raspberries and blueberries are not cheap even in australia.
Last but not least I will continue to cheer you on as you produce your labours of love for us to share. Please dont be dishearten by anyone but believe that most of us are cheering you on..
God bless and have good day.

cheerinotes said...

Aunty Lucy, would appreciate your help and advice. I baked this cake yesterday but my cake didn't rise and the inside is hard. I reduce the sugar to 170 gm, could this the cause of the problem? What does this mean -"aerate and develop the cake's stucture"? Do I need to beat the batter to the "ribbon" stage?

Your advice would be greatly appreciated as I intend to have any go at it.

Cheers!

yochana said...

Hi cherrinotes,

You don't overbeat when the flour is mixing with the butter and cream till slightly pale in colour then pour in the eggs gradually and beat till well combined. No need to beat too long tho..you judge the texture.

yochana said...

Hi Jessica Foo,

Thanks for your encouraging words.

cheerinotes said...

Aunty Lucy, thanks for your advice. I baked it again last night and the cake turned out soft and nice! Yummy!

yochana said...

Ah Cherrinotes,

that is why...never give up. Today I also made a blunder in my kitchen..I forgot to add in sugar into my cake until it's totally baked. I was thinking how come today got so many earthquakes on top of my cake...and when I found out that it's short of sugar, I made another one on the spot (with sugar this time) and it was a real "Thumbs up" cake.

Mool said...

Hi Aunty Yochana,

Tried baking this cake last nite. My cake turned out to be quite moist, is it supposed to be this way. The taste was like "cheesy", yogurt like. My family like it very much. Thanks.

yochana said...

Yes Mool,

this cake is supposed to be very fine and moist in texture. Chessy taste could be due to your buttermilk.

yochana said...

Hi Sally,

Where did you get your buttermilk powder? I've been looking for it. Please let me know where you bought it from. Don't you have directions on how to mix your buttermilk powder. I have to search my books on it and get back to it tho...

N.M. Lim said...

Hi Aunty Yochana,

It's me, Sally again. I'd like to ask you 1 tsp vanilla is referring to 1 tsp vanilla essence or vanilin and when do i have to mix it into the mixture? Do i have to melt the butter? Sorry for any inconvenience caused. TIA.


Regards,
Sally

yochana said...

Hi Sally,

Use vanilla extract or essence. Not the vanillin.

For butter, don't melt it. Use soften butter at room temperature.

Chris said...

Hi Yochana,

Thks for the great buttermilk recipe. I baked it today and it tasted really moist n nice. Unfortunately i didn't know why the centre of my cake didn't rise.It caved in like a crater in the oven but i continued baking n the end result was still good. I followed your instructions step by step but i noticed for this cake you mixed the dry ingredients 1st followed by the butter. I thought normally we beat the butter 1st then fold in the dry ingredients? Would like to try the recipe again to see if the cake can rise nicely. Any advice on improvement? Thanks so much.

Hi Yochana,

Thanks so much for your reply. I did follow your instructions step by step including mixing the dry ingredients 1st followed by the butter.

hi aunty,

tried it,love it! it tasted like japanese cotton cheese cake. but there are a couple of ques though,
how come my cake cracked after baking it for 30 min (i baked it at 180 C coz my micro oven doesnt have 175 mode) and my cake didnt rise as tall as yours though i used exactly the same amt of baking pwd as instructed.

thanks a lot for this lovely recipe. i think my hubby is going to love it.

Janet

yochana said...

Hi janet,

180C is ok to bake a cake. Your oven is properly small and it's too near the roof, causing the cake to crack after 30 mins. You can use a bigger tin and make a shorter cake and hope this will prepare the cake from cracking.

Hi Aunty Yochana, I had justed baked this. Thanks so much for this very good recipe.

My cake cracked quite badly in the centre and it did not really rise up. My oven had went a bit hay-wired, the temperature shoot up to 200degree. Could this be the reason that it didn't rise much and crack?

But the taste was very very good. Texture was very soft and fluffy.

Anonymous said...

Dear aunty Yochana,
I made the Buttermilk Cake today.
It's didn't rise much as tall as yours and a bit crack in the centre.
Could this be the reason I use 1/2 butter and 1/2 margarine?
But it's delicious. The texture was soft and fluffy.
Could I reduce the sugar to 180gm?
Do try it again.
Thanks for your recipe.

yes u can cut down, no probem.

A higher content of sugar yields a more fluffy and soft cake than one that has lesser sugar.
