Mrs Ng SK Vanilla Butter Cake

Finally, I baked this cake which I have bookmarked since Wendy's posting [recipe here] and from Bakericious [recipe here].
I baked this cake in 2 x 4 inches round aluminium foil casing.   The cake is buttery, soft and moist but the colour tone is slightly dull because I used brown sugar instead of castor sugar. 
[original recipe uses 8" square cake pan - line the base and grease the sides (greasing helps the cake's sides to rise)]
 4 large egg whites
50 gm castor sugar
  1. Preheat oven at 180 degrees C.
  2. Beat egg whites until soft peaks, gradually add in the sugar.  Beat until stiff peaks, set aside.
200 gm self raising flour - sifted
150 gm castor sugar [I used 130 gm]
4 large egg yolks
230 gm salted butter - room temperature
60 ml milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add in vanilla essence and egg yolks one at a time and beat well after each addition.
  2. Put in half the flour and mix on low speed to combine.  Add in milk in 2 additions and mix well.  Mix in remaining flour until well incorporated.
  3. Put half the egg whites in and mix on low speed.  Then use a spatula to FOLD in the remaining egg whites.
  4. Pour batter into baking pan and level.  Bake cake at 180 C [middle shelf] for 30 minutes then reduce heat to 150 degrees C and bake for a further 15 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and invert to cool completely before unmoulding [since I used the aluminium foil casing, I didn't invert the cake].

Hi Phong Hong, you are right. Looks plain but when you taste it, you'll go for more.

Hi Amirah, I used 50 gm for the egg whites and 130 gm for the yolk batter. The sweetness is acceptable. Maybe you can reduce the 130 gm by another 20 gm.
