Indonesia Layer Cake with Cranberries Recipe

When I looked back my post on Hawflakes Layer Cake, I just realised that it has been more than one year since I last baked my Indonesia layer cake. I bought a can of butter for baking layer cake and kept until it was expired. I quickly grab it to bake for my next Indonesia Layer Cake with Cranberry. This time, I follow exactly the recipe in my blog too, with slight modification, I change the filling to cranberries. For my hawflakes and prune layer cake, I managed to bake a total of 8 layers cake but for this one, I get only 7 layers. It was still very delicious and as good as last two cakes! I spent less than 3 hours for this cake. You can substitude cranberries with raisins too if you like as the taste of cranberries in this cake taste very similar to raisins. Recipe here: (more picture can refer here) Ingredients: 340g tinned butter180g icing sugar (sifted)1tbsp sweet condensed milk 12 egg yolk1/2tsp vanilla essense1tbsp brandy (optional) 100g plain flour (sifted together with mixed spice)1.5tsp mixed spice 4 egg white Some cranberry and red colouring Method: 1.

Repeat step (3) ~ (4) until second last layer, switch oven to TOP & BOTTOM fire, 180C.8. Continue to bake last layer until brown.9. Remove cake from oven and cool it at wire rack. *Note1: Arrange cranberries at 3rd & 6th layer. Press lightly with toothpick after pour 3rd and 6th layer mixture. *Note2: Take out 2 cups of mixture and add a few drops of red colouring, mix well.

Mini Pandan Bun Recipe

All the while, I enjoy blog walking at baking blogs. Recently, I gathered many recipes from baking bloggers, some are breads, some are cakes. I found a special recipes at many baking bloggers' blog, it is call "微波面包", if you translate directly, it means "microwave bun". I believed the name had successfully misleading many people and give impression that it is bake with microwave, but in fact, it is not. It uses conventional method which you need to bake in oven. The speciality of this recipe is that it gives a very soft texture to the bun. I first try with pandan bun recipe, it looks simple but in fact quite time consuming. Rolling each mini bun to swiss roll pattern spent quite long time. Although it is time consuming, but I really enjoy the making process.

 

Fried Bihun (Rice-flour Noodles) | Home Cook

"Firstly, put some oil, when the oil is hot, put in chopped garlic, follow by prawn or meat, after the meat is about to cook, put in bihun, then put......".   Standing in the kitchen and watching at mom frying bihun seems to be easy, step by step instructions were taught by this lovely mom to her daughter who does not know how to cook well. Her daughter forgot what her mom taught after walk out from the kitchen. And yes, the "daughter" here refers to me! But I am very thankful to have a great mom who can cook very delicious meals for her husband and children. Questions of "What to eat later? Where to eat?..." do not come across me as I have a great mom who will prepare lunch and dinner for us every day. However, this is no longer applicable to me during the time I stay alone at outstation. I have to cook and eat on my own.

Cake can be baked in several ways, by using an oven which is the most common way. I knew that cake can be steamed with gas as well. But have you ever tried to bake a cake with rice cooker? Basically I do not hear people in our country bake with rice cooker, and I was surprised to see a book that introduces how to bake a cake with rice cooker. Without further consideration, I bought the book.

 

 

Below are the ingredients needed.

250g    cream cheese (room temperature)

80g      caster sugar

3          eggs

1tbsp   plain flour

200ml  fresh cream

1tbsp   lemon juice

Method:

1. Mix cream cheese and caster sugar in a bowl. Beat until smooth and creamy.

The ingredients used and method of preparation are actually similar to the one we bake with oven, which is the normal way. But I would like to comment on the outcome I obtained this round. Basically everything is fine but texture of the cake is not as perfect as what I expected. It was a bit hard on the side of the cake. I believed it was caused by the time taken to bake the cake. I baked for more than 30 minutes, which I think it was too long. I should try to bake in shorter time next round, and wish that I will be able to get the result that I want.

*I used Japan's rice cooker to bake the cake, their design of rice cooker is different to Malaysia's, I think. Hence I am not sure whether Malaysia's rice cooker is suitable to use to bake for a cake or not.

As I don't have my oven with me in Japan, hence I am looking for alternate way to bake. I believed the rice cooker at my apartment can served me well also, hope it won't disappoint me. Hehe... I miss my smart oven in Penang!

Hi Loverly, I have not think of using electric stove with rice cooker pan to bake cake. I am sorry to say that I have no idea on how to bake cake in this way. Anyhow, I did tried with gas stove to steam cake, which you need a big pot of hot boiled water, and put your cake in that big pot and steam it with gas stove. If you want, you can try to steam cake with your electic stove, you can look for steam cake recipe like this one http://www.mnyfoodtalk.com/index.php/recipe/bake/105-steamed-caramel-banana-cake-recipe
On the other hand, you may try to look for cheese cake recipe (if you prefer cheese cake) that use steam method.

Hi Susan,

I am not sure whether they have English version or not, as I myself also find it is difficult to get English recipe book in Japan. What you can do is to find the recipe from internet.

Please share with me after you have successfully bake your cheese cake with your rice cooker.

Oh ya, another alternative way to make a cake, you can buy the premix cheese cake powder from hyper market, you just need to mix it with milk, the packing comes with biscuit base as well as cheese powder filling, after mix with milk, it is exactly the same as chilled cheese cake. Anyhow, I prefer the cheesecake make with pure cream cheese, as the taste will be stronger. But it is very useful if you would like to make a cake for friend's birthday. Easy and 100% guarantee successful.

Thank you for the title of the book, unfortunately I can't read Kanji very well or speak Japanese very well either, so can't use the book you used. Do you know if there is an English version?
I'm from Scotland, but have lived in Japan for around 18months. I love it here, but like you I miss my oven aswell. I am always trying new things in my rice cooker as this is the only good item in my very small kitchen.
The 'Cake' setting bakes cakes and bread beautifuly for me. However in my old rice cooker the normal setting pretty much burned everything at the bottom and sides leaving it hard around the edges :Pinch:
I am going to atempt to make this cake tonight for my friends birthday tomorrow. I really hope it works. :silly: :cheer:

Hi Susan, thanks for your comment. The book title is 炊飯器でお菓子。Do we need the ケーキ setting to bake the cake? May I know where are you from? Nice to meet you here...and hope to hear from you again. :-)

I noticed your particular cooker doesn't have a ケーキ setting, which could possible be the reason your cake didn't turn out as expected.

What was the book you took the recipe from? I am always interested in trying new recipes in my cooker. What a genius piece of equipment. :P

I look forward to your reply.

Susan ☺
