Paperlined Cup Sponge Cake

Its either that I have other things to bake in mind or that I totally forgotten the intention I bought these paper cups long ago. This cake suddenly float in my mind last friday, manage to find time on Saturday nite and done this cake. After reading a few other bloggers recipe, I decided to combined 2 recipes in one of my book. The top of the cake was abit burnt, due to the temperature of my oven...

4 egg yolks
50g caster sugar
2 tbsp maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla essence

4 egg whites
50g caster sugar

80g cake flour
40g corn flour

30cc milk
30ml melted butter

1. Beat A till pale yellow colour, add in B and mix well.

2. Beat egg white till forming, add in sugar over 3 intervals and beat till egg white becomes soft peak.

3. Sift D twice.

4. Mix 1/3 portion of egg white into egg yolk mixture, mix well, add in ½ portion of D, mix well, add in 1/3 portion of egg white into egg yolk mixture, mix well, add in the other ½ of flour and mix well, pour the egg yolk mixture back into the egg white and mix well.

5. Add in E and mix till well combined.

6. Pour the batter into lined paper cup. Bake at 180°C for 15-20 min. Remove the cake from the cups after its out of the oven.


The idea to lined the cup is from jo deli.

hey, that's a good reminder for me, hahah....i also got some papercups stored, but haven't used them's the texture for this? no need ovalette, that's good.. :)

I don't really like to use ovalette or sponge cake mix after I know how to make sponge cakes. My family like the cake but there's still room for improvement...think reduce the amount of cake flour will make the cake taste better.

thanks for your feedback, jennifer :) i shall wait for you to perfect the recipe first, hahha..or rather, by the time i want to make it, you would have improved on this recipe by leaps and bounds, hahah...though this has been on my list to try. my mum bought it for our breakfast item while we were got some nostalgia involved.
