Gosh aunty, how good does this cake look? How much do i want to eat it right now? How i wish i was secretly your neighbour and one day i'd smell a pie baking and i'd follow it to your house. It'd be like desperate housewives but without the sex and dead bodies ;)

Oh i have a favour, can you recommend me a buttercream recipe that can stand outside for abt 6 hours and is not too sweet? I'm baking cupcakes for a fund raiser. thanks!

hi lilacfunk,

I have the butter cream recipe in my blog. It should be able to withstand your 6 hours and if the room is cooler, it can even withstand 24 hour or more.

Cheryl said...

Dear Aunty Yochana,

thank you so much for posting the recipe online. I greatly appreciate it and I can't wait to try!

yochana said...

Hi cheryl, you're most welcome.

Hi anonymous, just omit the chocolate paste and add a little more of the cocoa powder will do.

Have fun..

Hi Aunty

Do I need to line the cake tin? Tks

Rosalynn

yochana said...

Hi Rosalyn,

Just line the base will do.

Kate said...

Hi Aunty

I need your guidance on the following..

1. Are you using 9" round cake tin for the whole cake?

2. When you baked the sponge cake, do you imm invert and let it cool on the rack?

3. Will the sponge cake shrink slightly?

4. For step 5, as mentioned "leave to set", when the mixture has cooled, will it curdle or harden?

Sorry to trouble you...

Cheers

yochana said...

Hi kate,

yes I'm using 9" round tray.

After baking the sponge cake, wait for a few mins then loosen the edge and invert onto a cooling rack, lift up the tin and leave it to cool completely. Sometimes the cake will shrink a little.

For Ganache, leave it to set so that you can spread onto the cake. If it's too watery, leave it in the fridge. If it's too hard, microwave again for about 10 - 15 secs.

Kate said...

Hi Aunty

Thanks for the reply : )

Cheers

Kate said...

Hi aunty

Gong Xi Fa Cai to you... : )

Need your advise on this cake again..

I baked this cake over the CNY, everything was near to perfect but was saddened when the ganache melted so fast.. I don't know which step it had gone wrong :(

Also as indicated:

[Decoration:
Some Bananas - slice lengthwise
250 gm. non-dairy whipping cream
35 gm. cocoa powder + 35 gm. hot water]

The cocoa mixture is lumpy despite sieving the cocoa powder before mixing it with hot water.. In fact, for my case, it can't be mixed evenly :(

For step 6, after whipped the fresh cream, then fold in the cocoa mixture, am I right?

So sorry to blast you with lots of silly questions as I want to try making this cake again.

Cheers

Dear Aunty Yochana,
First of all, I want to thank you for your generosity in posting your reciples. I read that you are also working full time so I am AMAZED at your ability to make such wonderful cakes still.
I have a couple of questions on this cake, what is chocolate emulco? Is it important to use cornoil -- can I use other types of cooking oil, say sunflower oil? For the Ganache, what type of chocolate did you use -- dark or semi-sweet? Any possibility of replacing with cocoa powder to make the Ganache (I try not to stock too many items when I don't bake so frequently).
Looking forward to trying to make this cake for my bro and sis-in-law. They love banana choc cakes!

Adeline said...

Dear Aunty Yochana,
I would like to bake this cake for my Son's 2nd birthday but would need a 12 inch round pan instead of a 9inch round pan due to the number of guest. Should I double the recipe for a 12 inch pan?
Really appreciate your advise on this. Cheers, Adeline

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Adeline

for 12" round cake, double the recipe.

rgds

Adeline said...

Dear Aunty Yochana,
It me again, Adeline.

Can I seek you advise again as I would love to know if this cake can be left outside without refridgeration after applying the ganache layer? This is because I realised that my fridge may not be big enough hold the 12inch cake :S

Also, if I managed to put it in the fridge after the ganache layer, will it be able to hold well in an air-con function room to last until cake cutting?

Thank you so much for your great adivse always :) Adeline

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Adeline

It should be able to hold well if the air cond is in good condition.

Adeline said...

Thanks Aunty Yochana,
You're always such a great help. Here's a BIG hug from me & my son Bryan :D
