Hi Yochana

I have been looking at your website and am very impressed with the daily cakes, breads, buns that you posted.

Do you teach? If yes, what is your rate? Where is the place where one can learn baking and decoration from you. Thank you.

Hi Yochana,

I noticed that corn oil is used instead of butter in this recipe. How's the taste of this cake?. I have just bought this book on easy stir n bake cakes, all recipe in this book uses corn oil. Looks very interesting & I guess it should be healthier.

Hi Aunty,

Thanks so much for sharing the recipe... will try it asap...could you pls kindly advise if the mixing could be appropriate done with electric mixer or by manually (by hand) for the fine cake's texture? Once again, I am very much appreciated by your kind attention.

Yuri said...

Hi aunty, recipe says "Mix eggs, sugar and oil into a mixing bowl and stir till well blended" Does it need to be till ribbon stage? Or is it enough to just mix with hand whisk?

Thanks so much for your advise.

yochana said...

Hi Yuri,

Mix till they are blended will do.

Hi Anonymous.

If you want it to be tasty, use Melted Butter then. I followed the recipe to the T . I used cornoil but melted butter will be very tasty.

Thanks aunty, this is really a very simple recipe. Lots of room for improvement for me, my cake cracked and had a hump. Photo is here http://bp2.blogger.com/_JZe07Sm_KPU/SGOub_TS7dI/AAAAAAAAAYE/bhmPayBGHIg/s1600-h/cinabanana.jpg

Hi Yuri,

I can't see the hump but a hump is nice ...not to worry.

Hi Aunty,

I just made the cake and it is moist and taste pretty delicious.
I used bare hand to mix the dry and wet ingredients and not by electric mixer. I also replaced the sugar with brown sugar. Should it be taste as moist inside ? The top of the cake is cracked in the centre.... pls advise....tks

Fanny said...

Hello aunty...it's me again, what would it become without bicarbonate of soda? I dunno where to buy it, by the way, i live in Taipei, Taiwan.

yochana said...

Hi Fanny,

There are many shops in Taiwan selling Bicarbonate of Soda. Well, you can omit it.

yochana said...

Hi anonymous,

Most Stir cake will be moist. Yes you can sugar to brown sugar. Whether it's bare hands or wooden spoon, it should work. Crack on top is O.K. I personally like the crack on top.

Fanny said...

Hi Aunty Yochana,

May I know what is bicarbonate of soda for? TQ :)

yochana said...

Hi anonymous,

Bicarbonate of soda - is an alkaline raising agent used in recipes that contain an acid ingredient such as buttermilk or lemon juice - ideal for soda bread. It is one of the ingredients of baking powder. It can be mixed with cream of tartar to produce a darkening effect in recipes containing chocolate, or in ginger cakes. Bicarbonate of soda can also help neutralise strong fruit acids like those in rhubarb or blackcurrants, alleviating the sour flavour.

A&N said...

Hi Yochana, the cake looks awesome and moist! I was wondering if I could substitute the 'cake flour' with all purpose flour? Any tips on the adjustments I might have to make in that case?
Thanks :)
A.

yochana said...

Hi A & N,

Yes you can use all-purpose flour. No problem at all.
