My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes....

The Ingredients... 
No point putting the recipe here since I failed.. 
LOL... 
The portions of this recipe.... 
It looked very promising when I put them into the oven....
Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they?
LOL... 
I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray.... 
And after they were let out... my heart sank.... 
The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew...
Hard at the top... 
Tak Jadi = Failed....
Now come to think of it, i think I know why...
Overbaked for these mini ones.... 
Is it possible? 
Whereas this big one... it was not as hard as the mini ones... 
Not a good sight... but still edible when it was still warm.... 
The texture looks alright, I ate two pieces...
But the next day, they were hard and dry....
Nevertheless they were all eaten up... no wastage...
My ever faithful furry member ate them all!

  1. The mini cakes look good though. Maybe they were overbaked. Sometimes it is like that, follow all the steps but did not jadi.

  5. It looks good. Maybe it is meant to be eaten the same day, not to be kept to be eaten later. Well, at least you have been making lots of lovely cakes, I have been wanting to bake a simple plain butter cake and I have not done so. Scared it would be disastrous!!!

  7. Yes, they look good. Too bad they were so disappointing. I laughed at your comment about your furry friend eating it all up.

  11. I am 100% sure that the temperature of your oven does not tally with the knob that you set. I even know some expert chefs in big hotels who need to use a separate thermometer to check the inside heat of their ovens.

    This CNY recently, I tried to bake my famous chocolate chips cookies again which I learnt while in US. My Italian housemate taught me so. I failed 2 rounds of baking and threw them away as I have no furry friend to help me. LOL

    The 3rd round was a success after readjusting the heat and recipe just to suit our local climate. It sounds strange but necessary. I used to bake during Winters in US, so the cold kitchen room produced different results compared to the warm kitchen in Malaysia. Good luck Claire.

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose?

Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
