Green Tea Red Bean Cake

This cake marks the history in my baking life! why ? ( I tell u later *)

I was quite obssessed with red beans , red bean bun, red bean soup, red bean pastry, ( I have a new - red bean tart, make soon) , and of cuz green tea with red bean cake.
I had an intention to pass this tin of red bean to my baker and make me a cake! just in case If anytime my sponge cake fails, I will not waste this red bean already, well anyway, I still need to try.

Again, I do not have any " cake decorating stand / revolving stand" in my house, do not bother to buy one either, too expensive as I only used it 1-2 times in a year. But today I need to use one! to help me out in creaming the cake. I think this is the only 'way' i can replace my cake revolving stand. Seng Seng's bicycle wheel! *

Hey, it works really! It turn around like the normal stand! I found it quite amused when I cream my cake on top of the wheel. and Now, even u have a real 'revolving stand', to help to spread the cream smoothly on a cake, need a lot of practice, and also again! I dont have the palette knife, aiks, whatever, i m not doing this for all times, just again 1-2 times in a year! I also realise, if you cannot make nice cream on the edge,or turn out unpresentable, argh, just finish off with lots of spinkles to cover up! ha haha

yum yum yum !

The green tea sponge cake turn out soft & fluffy. I m quite satisfy , as I did not scrimp on the red bean! lols!!!!

Ingredients ( 6" round cake)
cake flour 40g
green tea powder 5g
baking powder 1 t
corn flour 10g
olive oil 30g
milk 30g
egg yolk 50g
egg white 100g
cream of tartar 1 t
sugar 40g

some sweetenen cooked red bean
150g - 200g dairy cream
1 T powdered sugar
***** ( i cant figure out what is missing here)

[note: I m still not happy with the cream! I still think besides adding in sugar, there must be something to add in to make the cream my baker's! ha ha, guess I need to continue pay more tuition fees here to break the code lols!!!!! G must be wanting to kill me ]

( Preheat oven at 180C)
1. Whisk the eggyolk with oil,milk and mix in flour, set aside.
2. Beat the eggwhite with cream of tartar until floamy, add in sugar , beat until soft peak.
3. Fold in step 1 into step 2 until incorporate.
4. bake at 180C for 20 mins

6. Carefully slice the cake.
7. Pour the dairy-cream in a bowl and fridge it at least 20 mins before whipped up.
8. After whipping the cream, spread on the cake, drop some red beans, cover with another layer of cream, and cover with the cake, repeat the same.

Hi I'm frm KK too. Just happened to bump into your blog. The rest u can guess: I'm a non-professional baker. I start baking about a year ago & I upgrade my skill by learning frm the internet. Nope, did not attend those fancy baking classes. My most recent success is - Durian Sponge Cake. It IS durian season in KK now.

BTW, just a recommendation for your cake filling - that missing something u r looking for in the filling could be cream cheese. U can buy it in small quantity frm Consfood Damai. I made a strawberry filing for my hubby BD this year, whip cream + strawberry yogurt + cream cheese. U need to beat the cream cheese til fluffly first then add yogurt, then only whipped cream.

Hope it helps.

Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
..HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you
presented it. Too cool!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just
your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and
everything. But just imagine if you added some great graphics or video clips to give
your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips,
this site could undeniably be one of the greatest in its niche.
Great blog!

A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I do think that
you ought to publish more on this subject, it may not be a taboo subject but generally people do not speak about
these topics. To the next! All the best!!

Hello! I know this is kinda off topic however ,
I'd figured I'd ask. Would you be interested in trading links
or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?

My blog discusses a lot of the same subjects as
yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an email.

I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!
