Mushrooms or Cakes?

20 comments

Take a look at this picture, are they Mushrooms or Cakes? Take a closer look again .... they really look Mushrooms, right?  I was amused when I saw these cakes which looked like  mushrooms when they were out of the oven, but on the other side, there were 4 beautiful pastel colours. I was actually inspired by Joceline who posted 'Mapo Chiffon Cake' a week ago. I told myself I'm going to try four layered colours with the Baked Egg Cake recipe again. So this time around, I used the muffin pan that I bought from Ikea long time ago and baked 12 small cakes. The cakes still stayed soft and delicious, even though some of them were out of shape and we almost polished them all in no time. Have a try on this delicious cake, you can even bake it in cupcake liners or any cake pan you can think of.



                              Baked Layered Egg Cakes


     Ingredients:
         3 Egg whites
         65g Icing sugar
         3 Egg yolks
         1 Whole egg
         50g Corn oil
         65g Self raising flour
         1/2 tbsp Chocolate paste
         1 tsp Pandan paste
         1 tsp Strawberry powder or pink colouring
         1 tsp Vanilla extract


  • Method:
  • Grease muffin pan with butter or cooking spray, set aside. Preheat oven at 170C.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix egg yolks and whole egg together with a hand whisk. Add in corn oil till combined.
  • Sieve in self raising flour and mix well, set aside.
  • Whisk the egg whites to bubbly at medium speed and add icing sugar into it in 3 batches and whisk to stiff peak.
  • Add one third of meringue to egg yolk mixture and fold well with a rubber spatula. Then pour all the egg mixture into the meringue at low speed and mix well.
  • Divide batter into 4 equal portions (about 100g each) and mix each portion with chocolate paste, pandan paste and strawberry powder, leaving one portion as plain with vanilla extract.
  • Scoop each coloured batter into prepared muffin pan evenly (plain, pink, green and chocolate). Bake at preheated oven for about 25 minutes. Remove cakes once it is out of the oven.
