Baking at night is a dangerous move. Esp to your waist line. There is poor lighting. Your pics wouldn’t appear nice. The most fatal move is to eat yr bakes at NIGHT. Yr bakes are screaming for you,”eat me! Eat me!!” how cld you resist the temptation and excitement to try your new recipe. But it’s a MEGAKILL To your waist.. I just baked my rum n raisin cakes. I have been eyeing on that since I saw them at mykitchensnippets. Her rum and raisin cakes are so lovely. But the top of my cake cracked into a volcano while baking. Can someone pls tell me how to achieve a smooth and even texture? I halved the recipe. I converted mine into metric units. For the original recipe, pls click here.
Ingredients ( This is halved the original recipe. I made some slight changes to it) ^^
1/2 cup raisins
113g butter – room temperature
100 gram sugar
2 large eggs
140 gram flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 pure vanilla extract
1 tbsp grated orange zest
30ml cup milk.
1. Pre-heat the oven to 180degree C.Line and butter a loaf pan. Sieve together the flour, baking powder and salt and set it aside.
2. Cream butter and sugar until light and creamy, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally. Add in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add in the orange zest and vanilla. Mix well.
3. Add in the flour mixture in 3 batches alternately with the rum and milk until well combined. Fold in the raisins. Mix well.
4. Pour the batter into the baking pan and bake for abt 30mins until golden brown skewer inserted into cake comes out clean. Remove from oven and let it cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto the rack and allow it to cool completely before cutting into it.
