Just to be like the sun

Not to waste

Still have a block of 500 gm butter left that is going to expire this month, not to wasted it, butter cake is one that uses a lot of butter and further more, hubby likes to eat butter cake. Why not? do it and I am doing justice to the butter .. ha! ha! that is a present from a friend.

The previous time, I add to much cocoa to my butter cake and this time round, I put lesser and dare not even stir it too much or not it will become chocolate cake... a mistake, never mind, there's always a lot of time to practice my swirl.

For this butter cake, I use egg seperation method,and I like the texture.

Below is the recipe, actually this recipe has been with me for over 15 years.

250 gm butter
5 eggs
200 gm flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vaniila essence
180 gm sugar
2 tsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp condensed milk

What I did....

Beat the butter with condensed milk, 3/4 portion of sugar and vaniila essence together till light and fluffy.
Add in egg yolk one by one.
Sieve the flour and baking powder together and fold in butter egg yolk mixture.
Whisk egg white with the rest of sugar till firm.
Fold beaten egg white into butter eggyolk flour mixture.
Take 1/3 of the mixture and fold in the cocoa powder.
Bake in 7" sq tin at 170 degrees for 45 mins.
