Age is really catching up that metabolism rate is decreasing, so weight lost is really very challenging for me now than previously. I must really do something to lost all the weight gained, there is no excuse any more since little kicker is already 18 months lol. So I have to slow down (err... actually never be fast lol) on baking cakes, do more on cooking on Sunday instead of dine out heeheehee...
This was one of the cake that I baked for Christmas give-away, and this was one of my favourite cake!
Recipe adapted from 鲸鱼蓝蓝小窝居
200g gula melaka aka palm sugar
100ml coconut milk
50g brown sugar
200g cake flour
50g oatmeal (I used roll oats, you may omit)
20g coconut powder
5g baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
adequate shredded coconut (I added this)
1. Cook coconut milk and gula melaka until melt, set aside.
2. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
3. Add in eggs, one at each time, beat thoroughly after each addition.
4. Fold in sifted flour, baking powder and baking soda, alternate with melted gula melaka, well mixed.
5. Add in oatmeal and mix well.
6. Scoop batter into the cupcake case and fill up 80% full.
7. Sprinkle dessicated coconut on top of the batter.
8. Bake in pre-heated oven at 160C, 20-25 mins for cupcakes or 50 mins for cake pan or until skewer come out clean.
This cake is moist and soft, full of coconut fragrant which I love it so much, especially when I bite into the shredded coconut. 鲸鱼is right, this cake really delicious, another keeper!

It's so unfair one, like my hubby never get a round tummy compares to me. That's why I'm on dessert free diet now but I cheated these 2 days for eating some chocolate! Besides macarons, cupcakes are the best to make for give away. Like the idea of using gula melaka!ReplyDelete
Jessie, you are so slim liao leh. But it is true cos men's metablisim rate is higher and their body fats is lesser, like my husband, if we eat same food, I will put on weight but he will not. And hor, he just cut down a bit will lost weight, me ve to cut down like siao lol. I tried 2 methods of diet plan which is very effective, but need brain power which I am lacking of now hahaha... Talk about macarons, I am thinking to learn to bake it cos although I dun quite like it since too sweet but like what u said is so presentable as give away.Delete

Gula Melaka cupcakes sound delicious! I love how soft and fluffy they are.ReplyDelete
Yes Mich, this is real nice.Delete
Mmmm....looks nice and delicious. Love that you added coconut. I always love the coconut flavour in cakes or kuih. Totally agree with you. As age catches up, it's not easy to lose weight. I have been trying without much success. Maybe I need to be more harsh to myself :DReplyDelete
Mary, I love coconut in cakes too. As age catching up, we need to put in double or triple effort to achieve result, now is hard for me after I started to bake lol.Delete
I also very hard working exercise every morning, age catching up, have to control of butter and sugar intake . This combo of cake sure taste good !ReplyDelete
