Salam and good day to everyone..been blog walking for a long while duk cari this particular recipe...found the one that I like and I think is worth keeping..I am really sceptical, when the recipe calls for separated egg and whip the white egg and add in later by the folding method..my hands are grubby and I do not think I can be gently folding the foamy beaten egg white into the cake mix...hehehe...well I tried to be gentle and was laughing inside..the things u do to make a cake become a cake..anyway, I am surprised that the cake was lovely and moist so the end of my search for a a good sugee cake..definitely making another one soon.
Special thanks to Rima for the lovely recipe.
