Fresh from the oven... "Marble" Cake

It was Batrisyia's birthday last month and I'd promised to make her a cake.


She was looking forward to it, esp. after my last effort in the kitchen with the chocolate cake (Link here) for her brother.

And so it was another round of cake making, this time whilst I was in KT...when mum was feeling better and I was in d mood of cooking :-) ,


..but minus my little "helpers" ~ b'cos the kids were in school..hehehe..


Took out the mixer and ingredients that I could find in the kitchen :-)))

~ 250 gms of butter
~ 1 cup of sugar
~ 4 medium eggs
~ 1 tin of condensed milk
~ 3 cups of self raising flour
~ chocolate flavouring
~ Red "colouring"
(but i "improvised" and used rose syrup instead..hehe..)



Started to beat the butter and sugar..but when its almost "light" I realised that the condensed milk that my sister bought had expired!(don't know when ~ it was in her cabinet..hehe)

oh oh...had to slow down...





luckily a grocery shop was just in front of the house, so mum called the shop owner's daughter, Dah and she kindly sent over the milk..hehe..

after that.. added the milk, eggs, and lastly the flour.


Split into 4 parts..


1/4 ~ add the chocolate flavouring






1/4 ~ add the "rose syrup" :-)






2/4 ~ original flavour.






layered the baking tin alternatively with all the 3 "flavours" until done.


Baked in the oven 170C for 45 mins to 1 hour...


and ta daa!!!












Batrisyia with her cake.. :-)


(She loved it...especially b'cos its pink!..hehe)



Tonite, I made a another batch for Nazeem [n his school gang :-) ]

~ going to visit him tomorrow at "Kuale"..hope he'll like it..






But for this batch, I added about 100gms of cream cheese..









ps - in case anyone's wondering..
~ I did "kindly" share some of the cake with my neighbour, Dah...hehe..


pps ~ and just in case anyone's interested...please check your cook book/internet for actual recipe..b'cos as usual..in making this cake, it's doing it my way..


:-)))

Cheqna,
It's not easy to get condensed milk here. So, if we were to use fresh milk, how much sugar should we add? purrr....meow!

The gal who like to improvise too,
Angelina

Tengok kek mabel (biasa sebut dek orang lama) teringat omak rajin buat kek ni masa dulu. Kadang-kadang jadi sarapan pagi. Cecah air teh lagi sebelum pergi sekolah.
