Cempedak Butter Cake



For the past few nights, there was very nice baking aroma came from my neighbours, must be Indian neighbours baking for their Deepavali. It smell so nice that made me miss my baking, although I have the urge of baking but I am too tire and of course, too lazy to take any action hahaha....


This cake was baked on August 2012. I am a big fan of jackfruits but not cempedak, even if I see cempedak in supermarket or fruits store, I seldom have the urge of purchasing it. However when I saw this cempedak butter cake and the rave from 鲸鱼蓝蓝蓝, I decided that should give it a try.


I remember I saw cempedak in the supermarket quite a few times but when I wanna buy, I can't locate any :(. Thus, this recipe was shelved it for quite awhile until I saw a few packs of cempedak at my mum's place that bought by my sis! I quickly "snatched" 2 packs from her hahaha...


Recipe adapted from here.

Ingredients : (for 7" square cake pan)

225g butter
90g castor sugar
4 eggs
240g cake flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
4 tbsp milk
110g cempedak meat (mashed)

Method :
1. Beat butter and caster sugar until light and fluffy
2. Add in egg, one at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition.
3. Fold in sifted flour, using spactula.
4. Add in milk and cempedak meat, mix well.
5. Pour the batter into the cake pan and bake in pre-heated oven at 180C for 35-45 mins or skewer comes out clean.


Verdict?
The cake is very moist and tender, strong aroma in smell but tasted not as strong.
