Lemon Butter Cake 柠檬牛油蛋糕




Today will mark the last day for the celebration of Chinese New Year. We call today as the “元宵节”(Yuan Xiao Jie), so everyone, Happy Yuan Xiao Jie!

My son always asks for food after school so 3 days ago, I made this <Lemon Butter Cake> especially for him.  Everyday I would only give him 1-2 pieces & with just 1 bake of this cake can last for a long time.


 
消失了快五个星期,还来的急跟大家说声元宵节快乐!

儿子放学後就一直喊饿,於是便做了这<柠檬牛油蛋糕>,每天给他一两片,很耐吃!这食谱啊是几个月前从Joceline的家拿回来的,再翻根究底,原来原本的食谱是出自Sonia的家,谢谢你们的分享。

    1. Veronica, Sonia's version also comes with lemon glaze but I had omitted that. This cake tastes better on the following days. I used cling wrap to wrap the cake & put into a container so they remain moist.

  14. Beautiful shots! Huh, I know you curi curi tak mahu put the lemon glaze, hahaha..try the glaze, you will fall in love again ^_^. And I would suggest to use double action baking powder, you will have more fluffy cake texture.

    1. Siew, my mind was also full of butter cake after coming back from the holidays. May be thinking that I had lost 1kg so can afford to eat a few pieces, hahaha. Putting on weight is easy but losing weight is hard.

  19. Hi Jessie, Happy belated Chap Goh Meh and Valentine's Day!! I love how tightly crumbed your lemon butter cake looks like. Together with Mich's, your cake looks equally tantalising!! I'm sure I can already sniff the butter fragrance in the air :) I love how lemon blends in so well with butter cakes. I'm sure it didn't take long for your son to finish the whole loaf ;) Thanks for participating in LTU!

    1. No worries, Grace. My friend told me about this LTU theme after telling her that I made a Lemon Butter Cake. What a coincidence.

  23. hi, can i replace cake flour to self rasing flour?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Tammy, should be no problem for the replacement. This saves you from using the baking powder too.
