Both of the cake below are my 1st attempt, therefore there will not be any recipe included here as it’s still in a trial and error phase. So I guess I will only be sharing the recipe when I achieve that “OMG!! this is nice” compliment :p For now, I’ll just document down my baking moment since I dunno how long the baking bug will stay inside me.. Heee!!
I stumbled upon this Nutella Swiss roll recipe when I was googling for butter cake recipe which only requires 4 ingredients – flour, caster sugar, egg and Nutella. That’s it!!! After going through some how to video and few other recipes, I was determined to try it. It looks easy plus I have all the ingredients ready. I thought why not but I was so so soooo wrong. While it calls for only simple ingredients, achieving that chiffon like texture and rolling it without crack is the hard part. Still need more practice here..
I wanted to make a fondant cake so I tried this butter cake recipe and it turns out not bad. But I think it will be better if I let it sit a couple more minute in the oven. This recipe calls for milk but I just checked with my mum and she said hers version is without milk. Hmm.. Maybe I shall give it a try this weekend and compare which has the better texture 😀
It really takes a lot of patient and trial or was it just me (no talent 😦 ) but I do really enjoy the process.
It does calm me down after a long day at work 🙂
