STRAWBERRY CUSTARD LAYER CAKE



The original recipe was Pandan Layer Cake...but I made a tweak by using strawberry paste instead of pandan. Very nice sponge cake with jelly custard layer in between the cake. Recipe adapted from -

Thanks Madiha for sharing the recipe.

For The Cake

150g superfine flour
150g castor sugar 
5 eggs (grade A)
15 ml / 1 tablespoon ovalette
5ml / 1 teaspoon baking powder
80 ml water
5ml / 1 teaspoon strawberry paste
a few drops of pink coloring (if necessary)
80 ml corn oil or melted butter

Method :

Grease the base of an 8"  round tray and line with greaseproof paper
Place flour, sugar, eggs, ovalette and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Beat on high speed for 5 minutes.
Reduce the speed and add water, strawberry paste and food coloring. Beat on high speed for at least a minute or till the mixture is really light and fluffy.
Pour in the corn oil or melted butter and fold using a wooden ladle or a spatula.
Pour into an 8" round tray and bake for 45 minutes.
Immediately upon removing the cake from the oven invert (turn upside down) the pan.



STRAWBERRY LAYER
I made 1 1/2 to cover the whole cake as topping

  1. 2 cups water + 200gm sugar . Cook sugar until dissolved. Leave to cool down. Do this in advance.
  2. Mix 50gm cornstarch and 1 tsp strawberry paste into 150gm coconut milk. Set aside
  3. Bring 2 cups water + 1 tbsp agar-agar powder to a simmer.
  4. Pour in (2) into (3) and cook until mixture thickens and boils. Remove from heat.
  5. Pour (1) into (4) and combine well.

To assemble:

It depends on the mould you use. If you want to assemble it upside down, then put 1/3 of the pandan layer in first, then cake, then another 1/3, then 2nd layer cake and the last 1/3 of pandan layer and last layer of cake.

If you want to do it upright, then cake in first, then 1/3 strawberry, then 2nd cake and strawberry and cake again and strawberry layer.

Chill in fridge till cold and set. Decorate with some icing and dessicated coconut.

Asalnya adalah resipi Pandan Layer Cake...kek span yang dilapiskan dengan lapisan custard. Saya cuma gantikan pandan dengan strawberry....jika suka resipi yang sama juga boleh digantikan dengan pes keladi dan warnakan dengan warna ungu. Resipi diadaptasikan dari -
