Making Palm Sugar Sponge Cake

Last Sunday evening, the baking bug bit me again. This time around, I wanted to bake a sweet simple cake - not chocolaty but more complicated than plain vanilla butter cake. Considering that I still have some palm sugar leftover in my kitchen, I thought of utilizing it as one of the cake's ingredients.

After browsing some palm sugar cake recipes in the internet, I decided to just go ahead with making this palm sugar cake to satisfy my craving.

Simple and easy Palm Sugar Sponge Cake.

Palm Sugar Sponge Cake

Ingredients:
  • 4 Eggs
  • 125-150gr Palm sugar, thinly sliced/grated
  • 1 tsp Cake emulsifier
  • 1 tsp Vanilla essence
  • 100gr Cake flour
  • 25gr Corn Starch
  • 1 tbs Milk Powder
  • 50gr Margarine or unsalted butter, melted

Tutorials:
  1. Mix together and sift cake flour, corn starch and milk powder. Set aside.
  2. Cream eggs, palm sugar, vanilla essence and emulsifier using high-speed electric mixer until fluffy.
  3. Add the flour mixture into the cake batter and fold them using a rubber spatula.
  4. Slowly pour the melted margarine or butter into the cake batter. Mix well.
  5. Pour the cake batter in a cake pan which is already greased and lined with baking paper.
  6. Bake the cake in a preheated oven (180 degree Celsius) for about 25-30 minutes.

This cake is soft and not so sickly sweet. By the way, if you want slightly thin cake result, use a square cake pan (22x22x4cm). If you prefer to have thicker cake result, you might want to consider baking this cake in a loaf pan.
