Butter Cake from the Pan

Filed under: Kitchen — agnes @ 6:44 am

Butter cake experiment to bake with anodised pan. The perfect recipe is from Chan Lilian. My problems are I only have normal flour and milk powder. I made self raising flour from  one teaspoon of cream of tartar and half a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda to one cup of plain flour [link]. Approximately mixed 2 tablespoons of milk powder to half cup of hot water, when lukewarm or room temperature, added 2 teaspoons of vanilla.
Wished you were here to experience baking in a pan. I started with fairly high temperature to heat the pan, smelt heat from the pan before baking. I should’ve kept temperature at this stage same as baking temperature. As wonderful butter and vanilla aroma wafted through the house, steam gathered at top of the glass cover. This time I choose not to watch time (the lady demonstrator did the same), I choose to try evaluating baking period’s steam release, aroma and browning.
The butter cake burnt about 20% but the texture is spongy and delicious.
