Upside Down Chicken Cake

55 comments

Have you ever thought of baking something sweet and savory together? Let me tell you, I made this Upside Down Chicken Cake using some leftover sponge cake mix that I have. After baking, the sponge cake was soft and the chicken filling was also quite tasty. To me the combination was fine and I enjoyed it very much but unfortunately it was not well received by my family :(  Luckily I baked 2 small cakes and gave one away to my friend yesterday. Anyway I'm quite sure that someone out there will love this recipe or perhaps tweak it a little. If so, please give me some feedback as I would love to hear from you :)






Upside Down Chicken Cake

    Ingredients: makes two pcs 8 x 4 1/2 inches cake pan
    Chicken filling
    1 small Onion, chopped and cubes
    1/2 Carrot, about 50g, cook to soft and dice
    180 - 200g Chicken thigh meat,  boiled and cut cubes or strips. (reserve 100g water as 
    chicken stock)  
    15g Butter
    1 tbsp Plain flour
    1 stalk Spring onion, cut finely

     Seasoning:
     1/4 tsp Salt
     1/4 tsp Chicken powder
     1/2 tsp Sugar
     a dash of pepper
  • Heat up butter, add onion and fry till fragrant. Add in carrot and chicken cubes, fry well and add seasoning.
  • Sprinkle 1 tbsp plain flour over it, stir well and add chicken stock. Bring mixture to boil, turn off heat and add spring onion and a dash of pepper, mix well and set aside to cool.
     Sponge cake ingredients:
     5 Cold eggs (about 70g each)
     40g Ice water
     1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
     1 tsp Ovalette (cake stabilizer)
     150g Sponge cake mix
     45g Plain flour
     1/2 tsp Salt

     60g Melted butter or canola oil (to be added last)


     Method:
  • In the mixing bowl put all the ingredients into it except melted butter and whisk at maximum speed till batter becomes thick and white.
  • Lower speed and gradually add in melted butter or canola oil, mix well.
  • Line cake pan with non stick baking paper at the bottom and grease some butter at the sides of the pan. Add cooked chicken mixture into the two pans evenly, then pour batter into it.
  • Bake at preheated oven at 180 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes or skewer into the center of the cake and comes out clean.
  • Remove the cakes immediately from the pans after baked and place on wire rack.
  • Best to serve warm.

    What a unique combination, can't imagine how it would taste when it's sweet and savoury. Good attempt and nice looking too.: )

  23. I have baked something like this before but I used paper cups & I put the chicken filling in the centre as a filling. I remember many years ago, there was a dim sum restaurant in Singapore Chinatown who had something like this, but they used char siew.

    1. Hi, when you upturn the cake from the cake pan, the chicken filling will be on top. That's why is called Upside Down Chicken Cake.

  31. Ann,
    Your chicken cake sound yummy. I guess a sweet + savory cake depends on individual preference.
    I think its like the taste of my 鸡蛋糕with meat floss, that I steamed before its sweet and savory:)
    mui..^^

    1. Sure, you can use your own cake recipe or even butter to go with the chicken filling.

  33. I've just started searching for recipes for savoury loaves. I love your 'upside down' idea -it look fantastic and I'm going to try it. But probably with a savoury bread/cake recipe! Thanks for sharing.
