And what could be better addition than the purple yam. I was first introduced to this delicious treat called Butter Mochi cake by a friend of mine while living in Hawaii and instantly became one of my favorites simply because it’s out of this world
Place the grated ube into a large bowl and mix together with the milk and vanilla extract. To be completely honest, this cake has given me a lot of headaches to the point where I just had to redo everything again
This is my second chocolate yam/ taro layer buttercream rose cake. Ingredients for yam/taro filling. ) This round I'm still using chocolate cake premix for the sponge and filling is the yummy taro with whipping cream
~Instead of cutting the yam into cubes, you could shredded half and diced half. I have seen many friends in my facebook list making either Radish Cake (萝卜糕) or YamCake (芋头糕) before and during Chinese Lunar New Year period
No cake would be more apt for MY celebration than yema cake. Yema cake was named after the sweet. It is a recent trend but it actually is almost the same as an old fashioned swiss roll called brazo dela reina (meaning the queen's arm, the same as brazo de mercedes but has a swiss roll instead of meringue for the cake base)
I finally made puto (steamed cake) and I nailed it. My previous two trials were both big disappointments and my third steamed rice cake experiment was better but I forgot to sift the batter before steaming that the resulting puto has gritty "uncooked" rice in it
I have always had these 'jinx' when it comes to baking sponge cakes. I don't really know why, though I've followed exactly what the recipe said, but still, it will end up either being heavy or 'very not a sponge cake should look like'
