Peach Yogurt Cotton Cake

This is another lovely yogurt cake which is really light and cottony! The texture is fluffy and soft like the Japanese cheesecake just without the cheese taste :D The cake is amazingly moist too though no oil is added, guess the yogurt added attribute to the tenderness of the cake. Guess I will play around with this cake recipe to come out with different flavours! ^.*






Recipe source : xiachufang.com
Ingredient
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 20gm corn flour
  • 40gm cake flour
  • 125gm peach yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla paste
  • 40gm sugar
  • Apricot jam for glazing
  • Canned peaches for garnishing

Method
  1. Combine egg yolks and peach yogurt together and stir well.
  2. Sift corn flour and cake flour over yogurt mixture and fold till well incorporated. Mix in vanilla paste.
  3. In a clean, dry bowl whisk egg white until foamy. Add in sugar gradually and beat on high speed till stiff peak formed.
  4. Take 1/3 of the beaten meringue and combine with the yolk batter.
  5. Pour the mixture over the balanced meringue and lightly fold till well incorporated.
  6. Pour batter into a lined 7" cake pan (wrapped the pan with foil to prevent water from seeping in). Water-bathe bake at 180 deg cel for 35-40 mins until golden brown.
  7. Remove pan from oven and overturn the pan on a wire rack to cool down.
  8. Unmould cake onto a serving plate. Spread a thin layer of apricot jam over the surface. Garnishing with sliced peaches.

Anita Ling....freshly cake out just out from oven is very fragile, let it rest in pan for at least 10 mins before unmoulding to cool completely on wire rack. Corn flour and cake flour yields a softer cake texture. Though using plain flour is fine but may not achieve a similar soft texture.

Zoe...thanks for informing!
