Anyway, after visited Petite Nyonya's blog, I salivated for butter cake. She has many good recipes in her blog and please do visit her for this wonderfully moist recipe. I'll not post the recipe here since you can hop into hers to get it. I'm just gonna post the pictures so that you can see for yourself how soft and buttery this cake is.
Baking this cake wasn't in the plan and since it's at the spur of the moment, I do not have the orange juice in my fridge. I do, however, have 2 lemons and milk. So I substituted the 100ml orange juice and the orange rind for 50ml lemon juice and the rind. Mix the lemon juice with 50ml full cream milk to make up for 100ml. When you combine lemon juice (which is acidic) with milk, it becomes buttermilk and I love buttermilk in any bakes. This works fine as the end result is cottony soft and smooth texture. It almost tasted like as though it has cream cheese in the cake! Wow, this is my new fav recipe. Thanks Petite Nyonya for sharing this gem of a recipe.
It's Diwali today. Festival of Lights celebrated by all Hindus in the world. It's a declared Public Holiday here. I'd like to take this opportunity to wish all my Hindu friends and bloggers A Very Happy & Blessed Diwali!
